The Milwaukee Bucks limped home down 0-2 to the Miami Heat after blowing a chance to steal a game from the defending champions Tuesday night. Lose again Thursday night in front of a favorable home crowd, and the series — and Milwaukee's season — might as well be over.
No team has ever rallied from an 0-3 deficit to win a best-of-seven series in the NBA playoffs.
Bucks coach Jim Boylan says his team has to "accept the challenge right out of the gate."
But that's no easy task. The Heat have had 2-0 leads 10 times before, and never once failed to win the series.
The Bucks, on the other hand, have been down 0-2 15 times before. They lost all 15 of those series.
