Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 20 points, 12 rebounds and 15 assists – his first career triple-double in the play-offs
Giannis Antetokounmpo scored his first career play-off triple-double to help the Milwaukee Bucks to a 120-103 victory over the Miami Heat.
It sealed a 4-0 series clean sweep against the Heat, who lost to the LA Lakers in last year's NBA finals.
The Bucks will now face either the Boston Celtics or the Brooklyn Nets in the Eastern Conference semi-finals.
"I'm blessed I can do a lot of things to contribute to our team," said Antetokounmpo.
"Whoever we get in the next round, we're going to be ready."
Antetokounmpo starred with 20 points, 12 rebounds and 15 assists, while Brook Lopez, Bryn Forbes and Khris Middleton all scored 20 point or more.
The Heat, battling to stay in the play-offs, took a first-quarter 26-22 lead at their AmericanAirlines Arena and were in front by seven points at half-time.
But a 13-point turnaround in the third period put the Bucks in control and they powered on to make it a comfortable win despite a triple-double from the Heat's Jimmy Butler.
MVP contender Joel Embiid scored a play-off career high 36 points before sitting out the fourth quarter, as the Philadelphia 76ers took a 3-0 series lead over the Washington Wizards with a 132-103 victory in the capital.
The Wizards' Russell Westbrook notched a triple-double in the defeat, recording 26 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists.
In the Western Conference, the Portland Trail Blazers made the most of their home court advantage to beat the Denver Nuggets 115-95 and level their series 2-2.
Norman Powell top scored for the Blazers with 29 points.

Eaton, 64, a two-time defensive player of the year, spent his entire career with the Jazz from 1982-1992.
He is thought to have had an accident while cycling, the Summit County Sheriff's Office said.
He was found lying in the road and taken to hospital, where he later died.
"The Utah Jazz are profoundly saddened at the unexpected passing of Mark Eaton, who was an enduring figure in our franchise history and had a significant impact in the community after his basketball career," the Jazz said in a statement.
The 7ft 4ins centre's entry to the sport was an unorthodox one. He was working as a car mechanic when he was spotted by a basketball coach who talked him into enrolling in college.
