The Miami Heat (21-20) are starting a four game road trip when the visit one of the top teams in the NBA, the Milwaukee Bucks (30-12). The Heat clamped the Bucks in a 94-87 win in Miami on December 22, that saw Giannis have his least productive game of the season. Will the Bucks remember? Can Miami do something similar? Can the Heat stack up to the best in the East without Dragic? So many things to watch for in this game.

What To Watch For
Last time around, the Heat were physical and forced Giannis into tough situations. He was also coming off a late back to back game. This time, the Bucks are at home, and Giannis probably remembers how bad he played. Can Miami contain him enough to win, and will they be able to start this road trip off on the right foot?
