Heat Completes Sweep Despite Bucks' Upset Prediction
Brandon Jennings predicted his Milwaukee Bucks would stun the Heat in six games, but the Heat did not even need All-Star Dwyane Wade to complete a sweep. Wade sat by his old college basketball court to rest his injured knee, and watched his buddy LeBron James score 30 points in a business-as-usual 88-77 win.
The Heat will likely be back in the area soon for a Game 3 against the Chicago Bulls in the next series, unless the Brooklyn Nets rally from a 3-1 deficit.
While Jennings remained confident despite a 3-0 deficit, no NBA team has ever rallied from down 3-0. The Bucks will not join the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs, 1975 New York Islanders, and 2004 Boston Red Sox as the only teams to win a best-of-seven series after trailing 3-0 in any of the major US sports.
