Two Eastern Conference rivals go face to face on Saturday evening in what should be a cracking NBA match-up. The Miami Heat will continue their road trip as they take on defending NBA Champions Milwaukee Bucks. This will be a rematch of last season's Eastern Conference playoffs first round, where the Bucks spent the Heat 4-0.
The Miami Heat have made a fairly decent start to the season but are currently shorthanded due to injuries to several key players, including All-Stars Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo. Kyle Lowry and co. were able to get the job done against the Indiana Pacers on Friday, but beating the Bucks away from home will be a much tougher test for this inexperienced Miami roster.
The Milwaukee Bucks finally show the resolve and spirit that saw them win the NBA Championship last season. They have won eight of their last ten games, but they did suffer a disappointing loss to the Toronto Raptors in their last game. The Bucks are fourth in the NBA Eastern Conference standings, one place ahead of the Heat. They will be hoping to have two-time NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo back in the roster on Saturday.
The game will be broadcast locally in the Miami Heat market on the Bally Sports Sun network and the Bally Sports WI in the Milwaukee Bucks market. Fans living in these states can also get a live stream on DirecTV Stream. At the same time, those living in other states can watch on the NBA League Pass.
