The Bucks G/F drilled the winning shot over tight defense to give Milwaukee a 109-107 win over Miami in Game 1 on Saturday.

2021 NBA Playoffs - Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks

The Milwaukee Bucks had a lot of chances to win Game 1 vs. the Miami Heat and let the game go to overtime. When Khris Middleton had a chance to sink the Heat, he took the shot and drilled it over multiple defenders to give the Bucks a 109-107 win over the Heat in Game 1 on Saturday afternoon. Middleton drilled the game-winner over Duncan Robinson just a few minutes after he drew a flagrant foul in OT. Check out the winner from Middleton:

It was a hard-fought Game 1 from both sides with Jimmy Butler hitting a game-tying shot to send it to overtime. The Bucks shot just over 60 percent from the charity stripe, which could have been a big difference in the game, allowing Miami to stick around. Giannis Antetokounmpo had 26 points, 18 rebounds and 5 assists in the win. Middleton finished with 27 points and Jrue Holiday had a key bucket late in OT as well as strong defense on Butler as time expired.
