Down by 23 points did not send the Milwaukee Bucks into panic mode as they won their bubble matchup against the Miami Heat Thursday 130-116.
Sloppiness on the offensive end and lax defense allowed the Heat to storm ahead of the Bucks despite two of their best players sitting on the bench. The Heat knocked down just over 50 percent of their shots, include 13 three-pointers. The Bucks stampeded back after break, including outscoring the Heat 38-18 in the fourth quarter. Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton each poured in 33 points in the contest while Brook Lopez and Pat Connaughton also reached double digits.
The win broke a two-game losing streak in the bubble in Orlando as they prepare for their matchup against the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday.
