With the series tied now in 1-1, the teams are heading to Miami for Games 3 and 4.

Yesterday the home team was dominant since the first minute. After a great first quarter and an even better second one, they went to the locker rooms leading the game by 26 points, with a partial score of 81-55. In the second half, they even opened 33 points of advantage, but in the end, the Heat scored a few points after the blowout, while the Bucks had a couple of backups playing.

Another outstanding achievement in the night came from the Bucks. After converting 25 of 49 three-pointers, they tied the NBA record of 3-pointers converted in the history of the playoffs. Playing his best career game, Pat Connaughton had 6 (out of 10) successful shots from beyond the arc.
