This isn’t the Superbowl or World Series of first round match-ups. The defending NBA champions, the Miami Heat have shown their dominance of the entire league by compiling a masterful record of 66-16. Rightfully they are the number one seed in the Eastern Conference and are facing arguably the worst team left in the field of 16 performing in the playoffs, the Milwaukee Bucks.

Las Vegas has the Miami Heat to win the series 96%. That is substantially higher than any other winning percentage for any other team. One can only imagine that the 4% comes from the possibility of an injury to at least two members of the big three.

However, the Bucks are a team that have played Miami tough throughout the season and shouldn’t be taken lightly by the Heatles.

The article will showcase how position by position the Bucks match-up with the Heat. It will show where the Bucks should take advantage against a Heat team with very few weaknesses.

I’m not going to pull off any surprises of a Bucks upset, but I will highlight the different aspects that surround this series.
