A big part of that game-clinching win was Tyler Herro, as the Milwaukee native finished with 14 points on 5/10 shooting with eight boards, six assists, one block and one steal to knock the top-seeded Bucks out of the playoffs.

Fellow former Wildcats star Bam Adebayo finished with 13 points on 4/9 shooting and six boards. Adebayo and Herro both reached double figures in all five games of the series.
Miami, who entered the NBA Playoffs as a 5 seed, are now one series away from making the NBA Finals. They now await the winner of the Boston Celtics vs. Toronto Raptors series. If Boston advances, it will guarantee a former Wildcat plays in the finals, as Enes Kanter plays for the Celtics.
The Heat clearly have a very bright future in the East, and a big part of that is the young Wildcats shining bright under the brightest lights.
