They often say the NBA is a make or miss league and the Milwaukee Bucks missed a lot more than they made on their way to a 105-89 loss in Miami on Monday night. The Bucks shot just seven of 34 from beyond the arc and didn't make any threes in the second half until garbage time. Conversely, the Heat were making it rain triples to the tune of 18 makes from deep on the night. Several Bucks underperformed: just seven points from Eric Bledsoe, 12 points from Khris Middleton and 13 from reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo.

They will return to Milwaukee to face the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night.
