Milwaukee liked much of what it saw on the videotape of Game 1. Miami could not say the same.

Strange, considering the Heat rolled to open their first-round series with the Bucks.

The Heat broke down tape of their mistakes for an hour on Monday, one day before they will play host to Milwaukee in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference matchup. And long after practice, LeBron James, Ray Allen and Mario Chalmers stayed on the court to work on 3-point shooting, something Miami struggled with in Game 1.

Bucks coach Jim Boylan knows the already-long odds his team faces will only get longer if they can't steal Game 2. Still, he says "no one's in a panic" and that there are adjustments Milwaukee can make before Tuesday night.
