Heat – Bucks 108-102: Miami bows – without Giannis Antetokounmo

With half a dozen absences, the Heat (108-102) defeated the Bucks, who also had a half dozen absences. The two teams will meet again in Miami on Saturday evening (14/1) at 20:00 Greek time.

Their first meeting of the 2022/23 season wasn’t exactly what the Heat and Bucks expected. Miami won (108-102) in the early hours of Friday (1/13), but both the team and Milwaukee will forget this game very quickly because the many absences do not allow for special conclusions. Something that may happen on Saturday evening (14/1 at 20:00), when they meet again in the same stadium.

The Heat rose to 23-20 (13-9 at home and 10-11 away), who had a good night with Gabe Vincent, Pam Adebayo and Jimmy Butler in … a very quiet situation. Erik Spoelstra saw Kyle Lowry, Tyler Hero, Duncan Robinson, Caleb Martin, along with the suspended Dewayne Dedmon and the injured Jovic Yuerseven.

The Bucks fell to 27-15 (16-5 at home and 11-10), who had no Giannis Antikonmo, Chris Middleton (for the 13th consecutive match), Joe Engels, Wesley Matthews, Serge Ibaka, Grayson Allen. Junior Holiday and Jevon Carter were the most consistent, Jordan Nora scored a lot, but Connaughton, Portis and Lopez stayed low and the loss was fair and square.

Only eight errors were committed by the hosts who closed out the game with nine three-pointers, 22 of which were committed by the Bucks as rookie AJ ​​Green hit a career high with 15 (5). Points at bat (58-18), points in scrimmage (10-8), fouls (10-9) and points from second chances (22-16) all favored the Heat, in a game, however, that would pay off. It is forgotten very quickly.
