If the Milwaukee Bucks have any chance of knocking off the Miami Heat tonight in game 2 of their best-of-7 series, they’re going to need more production from players other than Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis.
Jennings and Ellis combined to score 48 points in the series opening loss (110-87) on Sunday night. The problem is, no other player scored more than 6 points and the rest of the team combined for just 39 points.
Mike Dunleavy and J.J. Redick are the two best scorers after Jennings and Ellis but they combined for 5 and 6 points respectively on Sunday night. They’ll need to pick things up in game 2 tonight.
Ersan Ilyasova also needs to bring something to the party tonight. Ilyasova scored just 2 points in the series opener.
Following tonight’s game, the Bucks return to the BMO Harris Bradley Center for games 3 and 4.
