Scouting report: The teams meet for the second time in four days. On Sunday, the Heat crushed the Bucks, 97-79, in Miami, outscoring Milwaukee, 56-36, in the second half. … Miami held Giannis Antetokounmpo below his season averages. He had 22 points and six rebounds. But Antetokounmpo had 27 points and a career-high 20 rebounds in a 104-95 victory over the Wizards on Monday. … The Bucks are without Jabari Parker (knee). … The Heat lost guard Tyler Johnson (ankle) in Sunday’s loss to the Bulls, which snapped Miami’s seven-game winning streak. Johnson is listed as doubtful. Coach Erik Spoelstra has a couple of options when it comes to the starting shooting guard but he used Derrick Jones Jr. in that spot last week when Johnson was dealing with a neck spasm. … Miami also is without Dion Waiters (left ankle), Rodney McGruder (left tibia surgery) and Okaro White (left foot surgery). … Goran Dragic, the reigning Eastern Conference Player of the Week, is averaging 22.8 points, 5.8 rebounds and 6.0 assists in his last five games. … Despite the loss on Sunday, Miami has won 14-of-19 games and remains fourth in the Eastern Conference.
