The Bucks vs. Heat is one of the most interesting matchups in the 2023 NBA playoffs. The top-seeded Bucks will look to make quick work of the Heat, who needed to beat the Chicago Bulls to qualify for the postseason.

Miami entered the play-in tournament as the seventh seed, but lost to the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday. That loss set up the Heat’s game against the Bulls on Friday, which they won 102-91. The Bulls used a fourth-quarter surge to prevent another upset.

Meanwhile, Milwaukee has the best record in the NBA at 58-24. The Bucks are led by MVP candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo, with a variety of All-Stars and role players who perfectly compliment each other.
