Heat Wingman Jimmy Butler said “[I’m most surprised by] just how fast it got out of hand,” he added “We’ve got to pick who we want to be — be physical, make things much tougher. Then you’ve got to live with the result.”
Bucks players call themselves Dogs. “We DOGS that’s all we talk about.”
Jrue receives appreciation from team members after victory by playing energetically. “Jrue’s the most underrated player in the NBA by far, people don’t understand how good he is. I didn’t understand how good he is until I play with him, he never says anything he is the quietest dog you have ever played with in your life.”
Buck’s impressive defense has repressed the heat by yielding lower-percentage, midrange shots while focusing their efforts on the interior. Particularly Giannis Antetokounmpo and center Brook Lopez is known as ‘Buck’s length’ has limited Miami’s penetration.
Bam Adebayo the heat big man is averaging only 0.74 points per play when circumspection by Lopez. Lopez was the primary rim protector on Thursday when the Heat was only 2-for-8 in the paint.
“We set the tone early in the game,” Antetokounmpo said. “We knew how important this game was. We came out. We were keeping guys in front. We were rebounding the ball. We set the tone defensively.”
