Bryn Forbes continue to provide a spark off the bench as he shot 7-14 from three for 22 points as her averaged 15 points per game over the opening round series.

Brook Lopez scored 25 points, Giannis Antetokounmpo had a triple-double and the Bucks swept the Heat to become the first team to advance in this year’s NBA playoffs.
