Miami vs. Milwaukee
When the Miami Heat take on the Milwaukee Bucks today they start their quest to repeat as back to back NBA champions. Most experts see this series as a mere formality and a means to an end. Nobody really gives Milwaukee a chance to win this series and unless some unforeseen catastrophe occurs this series probably won't go 5 games. LeBron James and D Wade are simply too much for an undersized and undermanned Bucks squad to handle. Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis might show flashes of brilliance, but won't be able to sustain a high level of play long enough to to be a major threat to the Heat's plans. Miami will win this game in a rout and LeBron will establish his presence of authority early. He might not have 30, but he'll get at least 25.
