NBA Twitter Reacts On The Bucks' 2nd-Round Exit Against The Miami Heat



The Milwaukee Bucks entered the playoffs with the best record in the NBA. They had a historically great defense with three players making an All-Defensive team, the Defensive Player of the Year and most likely MVP in Giannis Antetokounmpo, and a top-3 Coach of the Year candidate in Mike Budenholzer.

However, their level was far from expected since the restart of the season. There were a lot of doubts and concerns when they dropped the first game vs. the Orlando Magic but were able to bounce back and rally with 4 straight wins. Needless to say, beating the Miami Heat was going to be an even tougher task.

The Heat jumped to a 3-0 lead and the Bucks managed to beat the odds and survive by forcing Game 5 without Giannis. Then again, trying to take 4 straight from a team coached by Erik Spoelstra without their best player was an uphill battle, to say the least.

As expected, the Heat bounced back and took a 103-94 win in Game 5 to clinch a spot in the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time since 2014, and the internet had a lot to say about it:

The Heat couldn't go undefeated and got a nice gentleman's sweep. The internet, on the other hand, remains undefeated.
