Bucks at Heat 12/22/18 - NBA Picks & Predictions

The American Airlines Arena will play host to a Saturday night NBA clash between the Milwaukee Bucks and Miami Heat. This will be the second of a back-to-back for Milwaukee, who raced out to a 13-point lead after one quarter and cruised to a 120-107 road victory at Boston. The Bucks dominated the Celtics on the glass by a 55-36 margin and moved to 13 games above .500 overall.

Giannis Antetokounmpo led all scorers with 30 points to go along with eight rebounds and five assists. Khris Middleton contributed 21 points and nine rebounds for the Bucks. The Miami Heat lack superstar talent and are trying to remain relevant in the Eastern Conference discussion. On Thursday, Miami flashed their potential during a 101-99 home victory versus James Harden and the Houston Rockets. The Heat limited the Rockets to just 41 points during the second half and dominated the glass by a 79-52 margin.

Miami G Josh Richardson tallied a team high 22 points on 9-for-19 from the field and dished out seven assists. Tyler Johnson chipped in 19 points and four rebounds for the Heat.

Miami G Goran Dragic is expected to undergo arthroscopic knee surgery and is expected to miss the next two months of action. The Bucks rank second in the league in offensive efficiency and play at one of the fastest tempos. Look for Miami to play with confidence at home and help push this game over the total. Final Score Prediction, Milwaukee Bucks win in high scoring game 112-111.
