Miami Heat make NBA history, eliminate Milwaukee Bucks in overtime

The Miami Heat pull off the upset in Milwaukee, defeating the Milwaukee Bucks, 128-126, in overtime to win the series four games to one. Miami becomes the first NBA play-in tournament team to win a series in the NBA playoffs.

Jimmy Butler scores 42 points and 8 rebounds for the Heat, as he would help Miami come back from a 16-point comeback in the fourth quarter to send the game into overtime. Bam Adebayo would finish with a double-double, scoring 20 points and 10 rebounds, as Miami looks to continue their momentum heading into the next round.

Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokoumpo was asked by a media member following the loss if he thought the season was bust due to losing the first round which he would say "It's not a failure; it's steps to success, there's always steps to it. Michael Jordan played for 15 years and won six championships. The other nine years a failure? That's what you're telling me?"

The Miami Heat look forward to their next match against Eastern Conference rivals, the New York Knicks. Their first match-up will take place on Sunday, April 30th at 1 pm Eastern time at Madison Square Garden.
