Brandon Jennings and the Milwaukee Bucks came into Game One against the Heat with loads of confidence. That should all change after the Heat dominated the Bucks, 110-87.
Led by LeBron James, the Heat flipped the switch in the second half and made the game as laughable as Jennings’ comments. Jennings predicted his Bucks would defeat the defending champs in six games.
James controlled the game from the start, slicing the defense with emphatic dunks and crisp passes. He finished the game with 27 points, 10 rebounds and 8 assists on just eleven shots.
In the first half, Milwaukee gave Miami their best shot but it just wasn’t enough. The Bucks kept the game within ten points– due mostly to Miami’s turnovers– and trailed by only seven points to Miami at haltime. That was enough for LeBron and the Heat.
The Heat turned up their defense in the second half, allowing only forty-two points. Milwaukee had no answer for James and Chris “Birdman” Anderson proved just how valuable he is to Miami. The Birdman came off the bench and tallied 10 points and 7 rebounds in sixteen minutes.
Brandon Jennings and the Bucks gave a valiant effort but were just overwhelmed by the firepower of the Heat. He finished with 26 points.
Game Two is scheduled for Tuesday April 23rd at 7:30 PM on NBA TV.
