Milwaukee Bucks Odds
The Milwaukee Bucks strive to keep their season alive when they face the Miami Heat on Sunday in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals near Orlando. No NBA team has ever recovered from a 0-3 deficit to win a best-of-seven playoff series so the top-seeded Bucks will focus on just getting one win and moving on from there.
It might be hard to put their Game 3 collapse behind them as they led the fifth-seeded Heat by 12 after three quarters before being outscored 40-13 in the fourth to fall 115-100. Giannis Antetokounmpo is listed as questionable after suffering a sprained right ankle early in Game 3.
The reigning MVP had 21 points, 16 rebounds and nine assists for his third double-double of this series and eighth of the postseason.
Miami Heat Odds
The Miami Heat look to complete a stunning sweep of the top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday when the teams meet in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals near Orlando.
Miami used a spectacular 40-13 fourth-quarter dash to rally for a 115-100 victory on Friday to seize full control of the series. The fifth-seeded Heat are 5-1 against the Bucks this season and have won the three playoff games by an average of 9.3 points.
Jimmy Butler scored 17 of his 30 points in the fourth quarter of Game 3 while big man Bam Adebayo had his best outing of the series with 20 points and 16 rebounds.
Goran Dragic had 15 points — the first time this postseason he failed to reach 20 points. The Heat are 7-0 in the playoffs, including a first-round sweep of the Indiana Pacers.
Field Level Media Prediction
There’s no chance of the Bucks laying down and calling it a season, so expect Milwaukee to put forth a strong effort to avoid the sweep.
