After a long season filled with Covid, injury, and only 72 days off, the Miami Heat are finally back in the playoffs and against a familiar foe. The Milwaukee Bucks are that opponent, but this time, it’s in the 1st round.

We all know what happened last year in the bubble but this year there is no bubble. With that, people are still calling last year’s Miami Heat team the “bubble frauds” because they cant explain how Miami went on an incredible run.

But, last year’s run is in the pass. This year, both teams have new players and some new scheme’s.

A lot of people are saying Milwaukee is deeper than last year, which I would agree with but Miami is too. We all know that playoff basketball is different and Miami’s Head Coach, Erik Spoelstra, was made for the playoffs.

Can we say the same thing for Milwaukee Bucks Head Coach, Mike Budenholzer? Let’s be honest, last season the Miami Heat punched the Milwaukee Bucks right in the mouth.

That seems to still be lingering in the back of Milwaukee’s mind. Now, I am not saying that I am a therapist by any means but you can’t tell me that the returning players on that team don’t remember that defeat.
