The Bucks will come into Tuesday’s contest with a full two days of rest. They secured a trio of victories last week against Chicago, Atlanta and Charlotte, all teams with superior records. Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton and Greg Monroe have stepped up their game for the Bucks as of late. The Greek Freak has four consecutive double-doubles and five straight contests with double-digit rebounds, Middleton has 20 points or more in six of his last seven games, and Monroe has posted five straight double-doubles, as well as double-digit scoring performances in nine out of the last 10 contests. Those 3 spearheaded the Bucks’ most recent win, a 105-92 victory over the Hornets on Saturday. Middleton paced the starters with 24 points, Monroe contributed 19 points and 10 rebounds, and Antetokounmpo tallied 14 points and hauled in 11 boards.
The Heat are returning home, coming back from a miserable 2-4 road. Their injured list continues to pile up, as virtually every member of their roster is affected by some type of ailment. Miami’s 2 best point guards, Goran Dragic and Beno Udrih, are both on the shelf with calf and neck injuries, respectively. The pair are going to miss Tuesday’s tilt. Gerald Green is also dealing with injury. He will likely be questionable with knee tendinitis. Erik Spoelstra’s squad were blown out in their most recent outing, a forgettable 99-74 beating at the hands of the Oklahoma City Thunder. Despite suffering from a shoulder injury, Dwayne Wade led his team with 22 points, while Hassan Whiteside, also dealing with injury, had a second strong performance in a row. He put up 14 points and hauled in 10 boards.
