NBA roundup: Miami Heat move closer to Eastern Conference finals

The Milwaukee Bucks are on the verge of being sent home.

The Miami Heat are one game away from upsetting the Milwaukee Bucks and securing a spot in the Eastern Conference finals after a 115-100 win.

The Bucks led 87-75 going into the fourth quarter but only managed to score 13 in the last 12 minutes as Jimmy Butler registered 17 to seal the comeback.

Butler top-scored for the Heat with 30, while Bam Adebayo put up 20 points and had 16 rebounds.

In the Western Conference semi-finals, the Houston Rockets took the first game against the Los Angeles Lakers 112-97.

James Harden scored 36 points while Russell Westbrook had 24 for the Rockets, who were taken to a Game Seven by the Oklahoma City Thunder and only had one day of rest heading into the game.

Anthony Davis top-scored for the top seed in the Conference with 25, while LeBron James finished with 20.
