The rivalry between the Heat and the Milwaukee Bucks has remained mostly civil in the first round of playoffs.
But Wisconsin and Florida are two very different places, and on Tuesday, Heat fans had their own ideas about Milwaukee's finest.
"When you think Wisconsin, what comes to mind?" Local 10's Janine Stanwood asked a Heat fan.
"Packers," the fan replied.
Other words used by Miami fans to describe the Midwestern state included: "cheese," "farms," "losers," and "cold."
Finding Bucks fans to defend themselves wasn't easy.
In a sea of Heat fans at the American Airlines Arena, a lone group of men in green Bucks shirts were more diplomatic when revealing what words came to mind when they thought about the Sunshine State.
"Well I'm not going to say 'Heat.' But we do like the warm temperatures," one fan said.
