Game One between the Miami Heat and Milwaukee Bucks went as most people expected.
On Tuesday night, the defending champions will look to continue that trend in Game Two of their first-round NBA playoff series.
The Bucks are scheduled to visit the Heat for a 7:30 p.m. ET start. Viewers can watch the contest for free on NBA TV.
Miami began the postseason as heavy favorites to represent the Eastern Conference in the NBA Finals. They showed why the betting odds were set that way in their 110-87 win on Sunday.
The Heat were in control for the entire way, leading for all 48 minutes. They pulled away in the fourth quarter when the Bucks never got within 10 points.

LeBron James played like the top MVP candidate that he’s been for the entire 2012-2013 season. He finished just two assists shy of a triple-double, adding 27 points and 10 rebounds. It was the most efficient shooting performance of James’ playoff career, as his missed just two of his eleven attempts from the field.
Brandon Jennings put up 26 points in his attempt to back up his prediction that the Bucks would win the series in six games. He recorded just two assists, putting him 4.5 behind his season average.
Despite the first game blowout, the team isn’t nervous about letting the series get out of hand.
"No one's in a panic," Milwaukee head coach Jim Boylan said. "We've played one game. It's time for us to take a look and see what we can do and figure out how we can help those guys."
Just as the Bucks are ready for Game Two, the Heat have already forgotten about the Game One victory.
"That's one thing Coach Spo does a great job of," Dwyane Wade said. "He's always making sure that we move on and we move into the new moment. That moment has passed. That's one thing he's been very consistent at."
It’d be very surprising if the Bucks are able to tie up the series at 1-1. Most Las Vegas casinos have made the Heat 14-point favorites in this one.
Prediction: The Bucks showed no signs on Sunday that they will be able to slow down James and the Heat. Unless either Jennings or Monta Ellis has an unbelievable shooting night, it could be another long night for the No.8 seed.
Predicted Score: Miami 106, Milwaukee 91
