Can the Heat avenge their forgettable performance last night against the Bucks without Butler again?

This is our GAMETHREAD: Chat live about the game here!

The Miami Heat will host Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks in a rematch of last night’s blowout loss by 47 points. The Eastern Conference champs will want to do everything they can to avoid losing again and avoid a 1-3 start to the season against the team they handled so well in the playoffs not too long ago.

Of course, a healthy Jimmy Butler would help things but he will miss tonight’s game as well, with Andre Iguodala shifting over to the starting lineup along with Avery Bradley. Regardless, the entire team was to blame for last night’s disaster in which they allowed an all-time NBA record for 3-pointers. Expect a heavy film session from coach Erik Spoelstra at the next practice, regardless of the outcome of tonight’s game.
