The Miami Heat were able to finish off the Milwaukee Bucks in just four games. The sweep means a lot for the team, as they will likely get a week of rest. This could do wonders for Heat start shooting guard Dwyane Wade, as he tries to recover from his bruised knee. The week off could get Wade to 100% or as near to it as he can get his knee.
Lebron James can carry the Heat only so far, but the team needs it’s number two punch Wade to get past the likes of the winner of the Indiana Pacer/New York Knicks probable second round series.
Hopefully rest and rehabilitation is exactly what it takes to get Wade back into form.

Chris Bosh makes impact on Game 4 defensively| Sun-Sentinel

It ended the complete opposite.
