Bucks host Heat in game 3

For the first time since 2010, the NBA Playoffs will be in Milwaukee.  The Bucks host the Miami Heat tonight in Game 3 of their best-of-seven first round playoff series.  Milwaukee hosted 3-games in their 2010 series in Atlanta which was won by the Hawks in 7-games.

The Heat hold a 2-0 advantage heading into tonight.  Miami blew out the Bucks 110-87 in Game 1 Sunday before sprinting past Milwaukee in the 4th quarter Tuesday night for a 98-86 win.

If the Bucks are going to pick up a win in the series, they need a better performance from their backcourt.  Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis shot a combined 5-for-22 from the field Tuesday for a combined 15-points.

Tonight’s tip-off from the BMO Harris Bradley Center is set for 6:00.
