After starting the 2019-20 campaign on the road with a 111-117 win over Houston Rockets, Milwaukee Bucks make their home debut when they host Miami Heat in NBA regular season at Fiserv Forum.
Bucks sent a warning across both conferences following an away win over Rockets. Giannis Antetokounmpo did the thing which a reigning NBA MVP should do, while the supporting cast, led bt Wesley Matthews and Khris Middleton, made a good contribution, both inside the paint and from beyond the arc.
Antetokounmpo scored a triple-double with 30 points, 13 rebounds, and 11 assists, and nullified James Harden for the most part in the match.
Miami Heat also opened their new season with a big 120-100 win over Memphis Grizzlies, but the scoreline doesn't reveal about the close fight the Grizzlies gave Heat in this match.
It was only in the fourth quarter that the Heat managed to pull themselves clear in the game following a 37-17 in the penultimate quarter.

Players to watch out for: (Captain options)
Giannis Antetokounmpo: The Greek-Freak is the reigning MVP, and he played exactly like that in game-1. He will pick up a lot of points against Heat.
Khris Middleton: The second best player in Bucks' team. He averaged 18.3 points per game last season.
Wesley Matthews: Arrived this summer from Indiana Pacers and already looked an integral part of the team. With Malcolm Brogdon leaving in the offseason, Matthews has to take the responsibility of scoring.
Justise Winslow: With Mike Conley leaving, Winslow is expected to feature heavily for Heat this season, If the first game is anything to go by, he seems ready to accept the challenge.
Kendrick Nunn: he could be the real story of the season. After going undrafted in the 2018 draft, his journey to the NBA hasn't been smooth. But he looks a real deal and should be confident of taking on Bucks after a 24 points display in the last match.
Players likely to have an impact from the bench:
Ersan İlyasova: The 32-year-old Turkish star made a big contribution off the bench in the last match, as he scored a double. though a bit inconsistent sometimes, he remains a big option for Bucks from the 2nd unit.
Pat Connaughton: Now into his second season with the Bucks, the 26-year-old is expected to have more impact on Bucks' performances this season.
Goran Dragic: He is likely to be the best 6th man for Heat this season.
