A dream start turned into a nightmare finish for the Miami Heat against the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday. Granted, Giannis Antetokounmpo and company entered Friday night's tilt against the Heat as only six-point favorites, but a quick glance at the box score wouldn't produce any shock and awe when seeing that Milwaukee ultimately prevailed by a final score of 113-98.

While the Heat were up by a whopping 20 points at halftime, the Bucks have taken the lead early in the fourth quarter.

"It doesn't matter if you're down 20, 15, 10", said Antetokounmpo, who also had 16 rebounds and nine assists. The Heat appeared to be shaken up from this incident, and the Bucks pounced on the opportunity to dig themselves out of their deep hole.

Milwaukee outscored Miami 71-36 in the second half. The Heat's lead over Orlando and Charlotte for the No. 8 spot in the Eastern Conference was trimmed to just one game. Wade bruised his right hip on a hard fall late in the third quarter. Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe had 21 and 17 points, respectively for the Bucks, who top the National Basketball Association with 52 wins, including 25 on the road.

They are a very young side, very inexperienced side but they showed more heart and more confidence in pressure situations. It's nice to get runs but it always hurts when you don't win", he said."From a personal point of view it's huge.

The Bucks lost Malcolm Brogdon in the first quarter to a sore right heel.

In 64 starts this season, Brogdon is averaging a career-high 15.6 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game. Miami opened 10 of 16 from the field, and 6 of 6 from three-point range, with seven assists before guards Dwyane Wade and Goran Dragic checked in.

The Bucks gained control in the fourth quarter as the Heat struggled to find offense, outscoring Miami 34-18. As a team, the Heat shot 46 percent from the field and 11 of 28 from the 3-point line, but this win was all about their defense in the third quarter where they held the Pistons to just eight points. He quickly yanked Waiters for fellow wing Rodney McGruder after Waiters lost track of All-Star wing Khris Middleton on multiple possessions, then was forced to adjust when both Winslow and Wade missed time in the second half due to minor injuries.

The lead didn't last long, and Milwaukee kept pulling away. Only Phoenix has managed to do that so far in 2018-19.
