Two of the best Eastern teams will face each other in their fourth seeding game. Miami Heat (43-25) will take on low on confidence Milwaukee Bucks (54-14) tonight.
Heat’s campaign has been decent as they have two wins and one defeat before coming to the match. The side buried Boston Celtics (112-106) in the previous match, whereas Bucks seem like a shadow of themselves in the NBA Bubble.
They have lost their previous two games against Nets (116-119) and Rockets (116-120). Bucks are desperate to get some momentum going for themselves before the playoffs. And Heat want to close the gap on Celtics for the 3rd seed.

Heat vs Bucks Preview
Bucks have been playing safe in seeding games as they want their big guns to fire when needed. They rested reigning MVP Giannis Antetokokunmpo in the second half against Nets resulting in a defeat. But it would not hurt them as they only need one win to cement thier top spot. Moreover, with no home court advantage in the Bubble, Bucks won’t mind finishing second too.
However, with their overall performance suffering a bit, Bucks need Giannis and co. to get some momentum going.
The Heat is looking good and will look to improve their playoff seeding in the next five games. Bam Adebayo, Duncan Robinson, and Goran Dragic are in good shape.
No.4 seed Heat is 2.5 games behind Celtics and 1.5 games ahead of the Pacers. The side will not want to lose as it will give Pacers an opportunity to equal their record.
The Heat have a good chance of beating the Bucks tonight, but they’ll have to do that without the services of Jimmy Butler. Now, only if Bucks decide to give Giannis some more rest time, would this actually be an even game
However, Heat have beaten Bucks twice this season, so this could be anyone’s game.
