The Milwaukee Bucks beat Miami twice last season and are an even better team this year, so the stage was set for a great game. It was everything it was (or wasn't) billed to be, as the Bucks managed to push overtime on the road against the defending NBA champs.
The story of the game for the Bucks was the outstanding play of John Henson, the lanky UNC product, who showed he is ready to make huge contributions on the boards and consistently exposed Chris Bosh on the defensive end (more on this later).
In fact, the Heat were consistently exposed defensively all game, but due to the outstanding contributions of their Big Three on the offensive end, they still came away with a seven-point win, as they held Milwaukee to just four points over the final two-and-a-half minutes of the game (two of them were a garbage basket by Brandon Jennings when the game had already been decided).
Let's take a look at the postgame grades for the Miami Heat.
