Erik Spoelstra takes sly jab at Milwaukee Bucks after they beat Miami Heat by 47
- Updated: December 29, 2020
After the game, Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra described what the Bucks’ likely mentality was heading into the game.
"It looked like they had been thinking about this game for 80 days."

The quote was in reference to last season, when the Heat easily defeated the Bucks in five games in the second round of the 2020 NBA Playoffs.
The Bucks were favored to reach the Eastern Conference Finals and even thought by some to win the 2020 title, but their season was severely underwhelming.
In Tuesday’s tilt, forward Khris Middleton led the way with 25 points, four rebounds five assists and two steals. New addition Jrue Holiday contributed 24 points, three rebounds, seven assists and three steals on the night.
For Miami, only one player eclipsed the 20-point threshold, with rising guard Tyler Herro finishing with 23 points, three rebounds and seven assists on the evening.
The Heat will get a chance to redeem themselves tomorrow night with another matchup against the Bucks.
