A major bad news occurred in Miami, which won the first game of the playoffs. Tyler Hiro has been ruled out for the season.
The Miami Heat won 130-117 against the Milwaukee Bucks in the 1st round of the 2023 NBA Playoffs Eastern Conference held at Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA on the 17th (Korean time). Ace Jimmy Butler made a big success with 35 points and 11 assists, and Bam Adebayo (22 points, 9 rebounds, 7 assists) and Kevin Love 토토사이트(18 points, 8 rebounds) added their strength and succeeded in overtaking the team on the road.
The three-point shot that plagued Miami throughout the regular season exploded. On this day, Miami succeeded in 15 out of 25 3-pointers, showing off a tremendous success rate of 60%. Milwaukee had no control over Miami’s outskirts and was helpless. It was Milwaukee’s biggest loss.
It was a shocking game in that it was a game between 1st place and 8th place in the Eastern Conference. Milwaukee, who had the most victories in the NBA this season, was caught by Miami, who barely made the playoffs after the play-in tournament.
It was a valuable victory, but a major bad news occurred in Miami. At the end of the second quarter, Tyler Hiro induced Grayson Allen to make an error, and Hiro threw himself and tried to take the ball away. The attempt failed, and Hiro was injured in the process. As a result of diagnosing the injury at halftime, it was diagnosed that he could not return to the game that day.
And in an interview after the game, Miami coach Eric Spoelstra said, “Hiro’s right hand is fractured. He can’t play in the playoffs. Even if Miami advances to the top round, Hiro can’t play.”
The news is like a thunderbolt in Miami. Hiro has been the second best scorer behind Butler in Miami this season and is the most reliable 3-point shooter. As Lowry aged, Hiro’s attack burden increased. Such Hiro could not participate due to an injury.
Hiro played 19 minutes and scored 12 points against Milwaukee that day, showing a decent performance. Hiro’s injury is a huge loss for Miami.
Miami, which succeeded in overpowering the team with a tremendous firepower show, will play its second game in Milwaukee on the 20th.
