The Miami Heat were annihilated by the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday. That cannot happen Wednesday.

The Miami Heat were blown out of their own gym at the hands of Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday. Shall we actually say Jrue Holiday, Khris Middleton, and the rest of the Bucks shooters did it though as they nearly tied an NBA three-point record for threes made in a half, while they set a record for threes made in a game.

The Houston Rockets held that record before Tuesday night. The Miami Heat were just bad enough to let the Bucks overcome their number of 27, to make 29 of their own from range.

Enough about them though as all we should be able to talk about is the less than lackluster performance put on by the Miami Heat. Yes, they were without their best player in Jimmy Butler, which is a good excuse to lose but there is never a good excuse to get the wheels blown off of you as they did on Tuesday.

The Miami Heat looked like the Junior Varsity squad to the Bucks NBA All-Stars on Tuesday.

The final margin was 47 points. That is three mere points from a 50 point defeat and just four from the largest lead of 51 points that was held by the Bucks at a few points throughout the game.

I don’t know if Jimmy Butler is coming back to save them on Wednesday. I am not sure if he even knows right now but it’s about more than just that.

This Miami Heat team should have more pride than they showed on Tuesday night. It should be that same pride that, though may not help them get a win on Wednesday and especially if Jimmy doesn’t give it a go, allows them to put on a competitive showing in the followup to Tuesday night’s massacre.

Next. 3 reasons I don’t mind a Meyers Leonard starting lineup. dark

We may never see another Miami Heat showing as bad as the one we saw Tuesday night. At least I hope that’s the case.

It was a bloodbath. Another one like that would be unacceptable and the beautiful thing is they get to do it all over again on Wednesday.
