Finding the X Factors of the NBA Playoffs
This will be key for the Heat to open up the lane for Jimmy Butler, Tyler Herro and Bam Adebayo to get single coverage on drives to the basket. Miami’s offense is slow, predictable and uninspiring. But if Lowry can recapture some of the magic he possessed during his prime in Toronto, the Heat could add some much-needed dynamism to their offense. The Bucks are one of the best defensive teams in the league, and if Lowry isn’t a factor, Milwaukee’s best rim protector, Jrue Holiday, can put Herro on it. If Lowry can keep Holiday honest, maybe the Heat can steal a game or two instead of getting swept.
