As the Miami Heat look to close out their second-round series against the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 5, a look at three things to watch for. 

When Giannis Antetokounmpo exited Game 4 with a reaggravated ankle injury, the Miami Heat were primed to close out this series and move on to the Conference Finals.

That didn’t turn out to be the case, with Khris Middleton putting on late-game heroics and finishing with 36 points, eight rebounds, and eight assists. Jimmy Butler had what would best be described as his worst game of the playoffs, and Goran Dragic’s postseason magic wore off, too.

Duncan Robinson and Jae Crowder put on a shooting clinic, something for Miami potentially build on going into Game 5. The two finished Sunday’s loss combined for 38 points and 10 rebounds, connecting on 12 of their 24 attempts from behind the arc.

Oh, and there were plenty of Tyler Herro highlights too. The rookie guard knocked down not one, not two, but three clutch shots from deep in the fourth quarter to keep Miami in the game.

It wasn’t enough to pull off a win, but the Miami Heat will look to make amends on their mistakes from Sunday in Game 5. A look at three things to watch in Tuesday’s matchup.
