The Heat are coming off a sweep of the Indiana Pacers in the first round of the postseason and will face a Bucks team that ran off four straight wins against the Orlando Magic. That surge by Milwaukee came after being upset in the opening game of the series.
During the regular season, the Bucks won a league-high 56 games against 17 losses, while the Heat ended their season with a 44-29 mark.
Ordinarily, those numbers would dictate that the Bucks have home-court advantage for the series. However, the bubble format has negated any such advantage for the Bucks, which could benefit the Heat.
The series between the Heat and Bucks gets underway on Monday, with a potential Game 7 set for Saturday, Sep. 12.
