Giannis, Middleton lead Bucks past Heat in overtime in Game 1
MILWAUKEE, Wis. — The Milwaukee Bucks are out for revenge this postseason, and it starts with the team that ended its season last year in the bubble.
Giannis Antetokounmpo led the Bucks to a 109-107 victory in overtime over the Miami Heat on Saturday afternoon in Game 1 of their first-round Eastern Conference playoff series. Khris Middleton hit a game-winning buzzer beater with 0.5 seconds left to seal the win.
Milwaukee led by three points at the break, and Miami, who lost in last year’s NBA Finals to the Lakers, stuck around from there.
Game 2 in the series is set for Monday night on TNT.
