Bucks vs Heat NBA Live: Milwaukee Bucks will enter the contest after beating the Pacers rallying around a 40 points outburst by Giannis Antetokounmpo. On the other hand, the Miami Heat will come into the game after beating the Sixers behind a 21 points effort by Jimmy Butler. More about MIL vs MIA Dream11 will be given here.
Bucks’ season: Milwaukee Bucks are one of the most difficult teams to play because they present a lot of size and ability on both ends, long wingspans of Giannis, Holiday, Middleton, Portis, and Lopez, along with tenacity from Donte DiVincenzo, has made them a terrific defensive unit. Holiday, Middleton, and Giannis are all capable of playmaking duties and thus Bucks have a reliable offense and sturdy defense, because of which they are 3rd in the NBA Standings for Eastern Conference.
Heat’s season: Miami has made huge inroads since the All-Star break and is now in a position where they can directly qualify for the NBA Playoffs. Jimmy Butler has made sure that the team remains a terrific offensive and defensive unit through each night and their defense limits teams to 107.9 PPG, which is the 5th best in the Association. Players like Bam Adebayo and Tyler Herro will be crucial once the Playoffs begin and the team has an incredible depth at the guard spot with players like Robinson, Dragic, and Nunn.

Projected Fantasy Point: 52
Giannis has had another stellar campaign and has made a strong case for NBA MVP. The Greek Freak is a dominant player on both ends of the floor but will like to reach the NBA Finals this season. He has the squad to make a deep run but it remains to be seen how they will outlast squads like the Nets and Sixers. Overall, Giannis is an ideal candidate as the Super Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
Butler has willed his team to a more than respectable position and his top-notch leadership skills have been on full display during a turbulent season for all squads. The last year Finalist will like to replicate last season’s success but the East has gotten tougher in terms of elite squads. He has lodged 20 points or more in 3 of the last 5 games.
The guard is one of the best perimeter defenders in the league, but in addition to it the prolific guard also is a terrific playmaker and offensive player. He has picked up his game since last month or so and this bodes well for the Bucks who has an incredible PG right now. Jrue is averaging 20.8 PPG, 7.2 APG, and 1.4 BPG for the last 5 games.
Bam is one of the most impressive all-around big men in the league and has become an enforcer at both ends of the floor. Heat will like to see more of the same during the Playoffs and there is no doubt that Bam is capable of destroying most Centers in the league. He is averaging 6.2 APG and 1.4 SPG for the last 5 games.
Tyler Herro: PPG: 15.3 RPG: 4.9 APG: 3.3 TPG: 1.9
Herro is coming off the bench and exemplifies the depth at the guard spot for his squad. He is averaging 20.2 PPG for the last 4 games and seems to have recovered from his injury.
Khris Middleton: PPG: 20.4 RPG: 6.0 APG: 5.4 SPG: 1.1 TPG: 2.6 PFP: 40
Middleton belongs to a category of the players who keep on adding new skills through an elite work ethic. This season he has become a better passer and has given the Bucks a third option for the playmaking duties. He has scored 20 points or more in 4 of the last 5 games.
Duncan Robinson: PPG: 13.1 RPG: 3.5 TPG: 1.2 PFP: 22
Duncan is 4th in terms of 3 pointers made, having clicked on 243 of them. He is averaging 14.4 PPG for the last 5 games and helps his squad stretch the floor.
Donte DiVincenzo: PPG: 10.4 RPG: 5.7 APG: 3.1 SPG: 1.1 TPG: 1.4 PFP: 30
