Found April 19, 2013 on Pass The Pill:

This season, the Milwaukee Bucks got the misfortune of matching up with the Miami Heat in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. Almost everyone is expecting the defending champion Heat to destroy the Bucks, and no one really thinks that there is a serious chance at an upset here. It’s very rare that a number one seed loses in the first round, especially when that one seed is led by a player like LeBron James in his prime. You can put Brandon Jennings on the short-list of people expecting an upset. The shoot-first point guard is calling an upset over the Miami Heat in 6 games. Yes, you read that right. Milwaukee over Miami. In 6 games. We’re Gonna Win In Six. – Brandon Jennings on #BucksPlayoffs — Milwaukee Bucks (@Bucks) April 19, 2013 Well, there’s a reason the games are played on the court, and not on paper. I guess. Many would not be surprised by a Heat sweep, and very few expect this to be a terribly serious series. With that being said, you obviously don’t expect Brandon Jennings to come out and say that. But to predict a Milwaukee victory in 6 games is bold to say the least. Hey, confidence is a good thing. Strictly from a fan’s perspective, it would be great if Brandon Jennings and the Bucks could make this a competitive series. And could you imagine the mayhem that would occur if the Bucks actually pulled this one out, true to his prediction? I can hear Skip Bayless yelling through my television already. -Mark Evans, Assistant Manager/Editor of Content Follow us on Twitter   The post Brandon Jennings: We Will Beat Heat In 6 Games appeared first on Pass The Pill - Kings of Hoops.

NBA Playoffs Preview: Heat vs. Bucks

The defending champs will take on the Milwaukee Bucks in the first round of the playoffs.  At first thought, this won’t be much of a challenge for them.  At second thought, it still won’t be much of a challenge for them.  Milwaukee clearly doesn’t have the tools to compete with the Heat. What Miami needs to do to win: Nothing special.  They just need to play their game...

Chris Andersen is giving Heat a huge boost

MIAMI (AP) -- It takes four losses for a team to be eliminated from the NBA postseason, as anyone who follows the league surely knows.

Chris’ suit complemented the birthday girl Adrienne outfit perfectly, as she looked beautiful in her ruby red gown. Chris made a bold fashion statement with that pink suit didn’t he? what are your thoughts...

Heat looking ahead, not back at 2012 success

A year ago, the Miami Heat were chasing something. This time around, everyone is chasing them. And in simplest terms, that's the taproot of the philosophy Heat coach Erik Spoelstra began trying to instill in his team way back in September, even before the first practice of training camp. Only four franchises since 1969 - only five in league history, period - have won back-to...

State of the Heat: Staying humble

MIAMI The Milwaukee Bucks no doubt will look. But they might have a hard time finding bulletin-board material coming out of the Miami Heat camp.Heat guard Ray Allen said several players talked among themselves the other day. The message was simple as the team prepares to open an Eastern Conference first-round series Sunday against the Bucks.We talked about playoff flops of guys...

Another MVP for LeBron seems likely

There has never been a unanimous MVP in the history of the NBA. Not Wilt Chamberlain, not Bill Russell, not Shaquille O'Neal, not Michael Jordan. LeBron James might soon change that. At least, the Miami Heat believe he should. After finally winning that first NBA title last June, James was better than ever in his first year as a champion. He led the league in field goals,...

Milwaukee Bucks – The End is Near

In Game of Thrones, Ned Stark warns that the world is on the verge of many years of snow and darkness when he says that “winter is coming”. Well **** Ned, it’s April 18th and snow is in the air as I write this. So congratulations Mr. Stark, looks like you were right. And……segway…I’ve been watching alot of Game of Thrones instead of watching/writing about the Bucks...

So Who Can Beat the Miami Heat?

If you have watched or even casually followed the NBA this season you know one thing--the Miami Heat totally rock. Winning streak aside, there is no team that has been able to go out on the court and find a way to win quite like they have this season. But does that mean they are the easy favorite to win the NBA Finals this year? Don't bet on it! Now the easy to do would...

Pat Riley planning to keep Heat core together

MIAMI -- The Miami Heat are going for their second straight championship. But Pat Riley wants a lot more down the road.There is much uncertainty about what will happen with the Heat after a more punitive luxury tax enters the NBA next season and continues to escalate in future years and for when stars LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh can opt out of their contracts in the...

Heat back in playoff mode, set for Milwaukee

LeBron James typically cannot sleep much before the first game of a postseason. Even after 10 years in the league, three MVP awards and a championship, Game 1 still kicks his anxiety level into high gear. ''Like the night before Christmas,'' James said. Makes sense, since the Miami Heat have been waiting about a year for this. The eight preseason outings, the 82...
