Sports Desk, Sep 5 (efe-epa).- The Milwaukee Bucks are one loss away from elimination in the Eastern Conference as they trail 3-0 to the Miami Heat.
The Heat lead the best-of-seven series after a victory against the Indiana Pacers and coming back from a double-digit deficit against the Bucks on Friday to win Game 3 115-100.
Game 4 on Sunday could see them go through to the Eastern Conference finals for the first time since 2014.
The Bucks, who were the No. 1 seed last year, are battling against an early exit from the competition.
No. 1 seeds usually dominate in the playoffs.
NBA Sundays are scheduled so that they can be broadcast during prime-time viewing in Europe to try and attract a bigger audience on the continent.
These fixtures have resumed after being suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
This Sunday’s match will be decisive as one of the title favorites the Bucks could be out of the conference despite having obtained the best record in the regular season and having Giannis Antetokounmpo, the most valued player in the competition, among their ranks.
These two factors have dissipated during the playoffs against underdogs the Heat who have managed to be the best team in the playoffs as they are the only undefeated side to date with a 7-0 record.
Led by Jimmy Butler, Erik Spoelstra’s team has proven they have a clear game idea and plan to stop the Greek star.
