Breaking down the series: Heat vs. Bucks--Miami Herald
Heat: The best in the Big 3 era, with a Hall-of-Fame-caliber shooter (Ray Allen), a savvy shooter/defender enjoying his best season ever from three-point range (Shane Battier), a much-improved backup point guard (Norris Cole) and an quintessential energy man (Chris Andersen). Rashard Lewis and Mike Miller can contribute if needed.
• Bucks: Milwaukee has some quality depth, with dangerous shooters J.J. Redick (14.1 points per game) and Mike Dunleavy, emerging center John Henson and hustling Luc Mbah a Moute. Coach Jim Boylan said he doesn’t expect to use Sam Dalembert or Drew Gooden.
• Edge: Heat.
