Bucks' Twitter account trolls Heat fans after Milwaukee sweeps Miami out of NBA playoffs

After the Bucks' Game 4 victory over the Heat, TNT's Ernie Johnson asked reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo about the importance of ending the series and avoiding any extra games. 

"There's a saying: Don't play with your food," Antetokounmpo said. "We didn't want to play with our food."

That much was clear Saturday afternoon, as Milwaukee completed a dominant sweep of Miami with a 120-103 win, becoming the first team to advance to the second round of the 2021 NBA playoffs. Antetokounmpo led the way with his first career playoff triple-double (20 points, 15 assists, 12 rebounds), but he got plenty of help with Brook Lopez, Khris Middleton and Bryn Forbes each contributing at least 20 points.

The Bucks simply outclassed the Heat, exacting a measure of revenge after Miami eliminated them from the 2020 Florida "bubble" — and in this case, revenge was a dish best served online.

Milwaukee's Twitter account unleashed its fury after the final buzzer with multiple posts roasting the Heat and their supporters. The Bucks started by posting a video featuring a couple of Heat bros yelling and Charles Barkley sweeping the floor of the TNT studio.

For the follow-up tweet, the Bucks shared the final score of Game 4 with the caption, "This ain't the bubble." (An underrated funny element is the inclusion of the Calm sponsorship considering Milwaukee had clearly chosen violence.)

And then there was the sledgehammer. The Bucks compiled old tweets from Heat fans suggesting that Miami would once again beat Milwaukee. The fans sounded confident before the series began, but they slowly came to the realization that the Heat wouldn't be advancing this time around.

Wait, the Bucks handed Bango a broom? Just brutal.

Eventually, the Bucks did give the customary Twitter salute to the Heat.

Two lessons here: Don't play with your food, and don't play with the Bucks' social media team.
