Heat Completes Sweep Despite Bucks' Upset Prediction

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.
