Miami Heat Defeat Milwaukee Bucks In Game 5 To Advance To Conference Finals

The Milwaukee Bucks, without reigning NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, fell to the Miami Heat 103-94 in Game 5 on Tuesday night. The Heat will now move on to the Eastern Conference finals for the first time since 2014.

Jimmy Butler led the way for the Heat in Game 5 with 17 points and 10 rebounds, while Goran Dragic added 16 points and four rebounds.  Khris Middleton paced the Bucks with 23 points and seven rebounds, and Donte DiVincenzo added 17 points. Without Antetokounmpo, however, it wasn’t enough – and the Bucks will now be heading home.

The winner of the series between the Toronto Raptors and Boston Celtics will now face the Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals.
