Only one thing went wrong for the Miami Heat on Thursday night. Udonis Haslem voted no.
The rest went as well as anyone could have expected.
Tyler Herro scored 27 points in 24 minutes off the bench, Jimmy Butler added 21 and the Miami Heat opened their season with an easy 137-95 victory over the NBA champion Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday night.
“I mean, 137′s a lot,” Herro said. “Hopefully, we can see that a lot this season.”
Bam Adebayo had 20 points and 13 rebounds for the Heat, who set team records for opening night scoring and opening night margin of victory. It was nearly the biggest margin of victory in any game — falling just short of a 43-point win over the Los Angeles Clippers in 1994.
