The Bucks are back for anyone who may have been in doubt!

Among the favorites to win the 2021 NBA Championship with a payout of $550 on every $100 bet, Milwaukee finished off the Miami Heat Tuesday night 144-97 and now sits at 2-2.  That 47-point win margin paid out $525 for every $100 bet.

The Bucks made a record 29 3-pointers just two days after enduring their worst 3-point effort in just over a year.

They shot 29 for 51 from deep, two nights after going 7 for 38 in a loss to New York.

“Some nights, the basketball gods are with you a little bit,” Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said. “It’s probably one of those nights.”

Milwaukee used 13 players and 12 made at least one 3-pointer — the only exception being two-time reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo. Khris Middleton had four 3′s and scored 25 points, Jrue Holiday made six 3′s in his 24-point night and Donte DiVincenzo was 5-for-6 from deep to finish with 17 points.

Antetokounmpo had only nine points. But his brother, Thanasis Antetokounmpo — who was 0 for 11 from 3-point range in his career entering the night — got into the act and made one from deep.

“I knew we were shooting well,” said Bucks center Brook Lopez, who made three 3′s. “I didn’t know we were anything close to that.”

The record-breaker was made by Sam Merrill, who got the 28th 3-pointer with 6:07 remaining, giving the Bucks a 131-86 lead.

The previous record for 3’s in a game was 27, set by the Houston Rockets against the Phoenix Suns on April 7, 2019. Milwaukee’s previous most was 22, against Sacramento on Nov. 4, 2018. The most previously allowed in a game by Miami was 24, on Feb. 5 against the Los Angeles Clippers.

We do get to see these two teams back in action versus one another Wednesday night. 

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra – "It was pretty clear to everybody in the arena and anybody that was watching that game that they were playing at a different urgency and intensity level. It looked like they have been thinking about this game for 80 days.”

The Heat will be without star forward Jimmy Butler once again.
