The Milwaukee Bucks are down 2-0 in the ECF semifinal series against the Miami Heat. With the Heat being the favorites now and the Bucks’ backs being against the wall, Mike Budenholzer believes that his team will bounce back.
“Your character comes through when you’re tested,” he said, per Dennis Krause of Spectrum News 1. “This team’s character is off the charts… This team is built to respond.”
Milwaukee lost Game 2, after a questionable call on Giannis Antetokounmpo, who fouled Jimmy Butler with no time left on the clock. Butler made the free throws and clinched the 116-114 victory.
In the previous sequence, Dragic fouled Khris Middleton on a three-point play. The Bucks’ all-star tied the game (114-114), but the Heat had time for one last shot.
The Milwaukee Bucks are entering Game 3 with the need to make adjuments and find a formula against Miami’s swarming defense inside the paint.
