The Bucks-Heat series is going to be a good one. Milwaukee may have the best record in the NBA, but Miami plays the Bucks very well and has two stars leading the way in Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo.
In the first round against the Orlando Magic, Eric Bledsoe averaged 11.6 points, 3.6 rebounds and 6.6 assists. George Hill, meanwhile, put up 9.2 points, 2.0 boards and 3.8 dimes.
The Bucks are going to need Bledsoe to play in this series if they want to avoid the upset. Hopefully, his hamstring strain improves by the time Game 2 rolls around.
