MIAMI (AP) — Turns out, there was a reason the Milwaukee Bucks weren't worried about a playoff rematch with the Miami Heat in Round 1 this year.

The last four games proved why.

Giannis Antetokounmpo was a dominant force all over the court Saturday and earned his first career playoff triple-double with 20 points, 12 rebounds and 15 assists. 

Brook Lopez scored 25 points, while sharp shooter Bryn Forbes hit seven three-pointers and finished with 22 points.

The Bucks became the first team to advance in this year's playoffs.

Milwaukee beat the Heat 120-103 to finish off a four-game first round sweep over last season's Eastern Conference champions.

Bam Adebayo scored 20 points and grabbed 14 rebounds for Miami, which got 18 points from Kendrick Nunn and a triple-double from Jimmy Butler.
