Bucks win third straight beating Miami 97-81


MIAMI (AP) -- Andrew Bogut had 22 points and 11 rebounds, Carlos Delfino finished with 16 points and 10 rebounds and the Milwaukee Bucks beat Miami for the second time in three nights, 97-81 Monday to climb within two games of the slumping Heat for the Eastern Conference's final playoff spot.

Charlie Bell and Hakim Warrick each scored 12 for the Bucks, who outscored Miami 54-27 over the final 19 1/2 minutes of the first half and never lost control.

Dwyane Wade led the Heat with 23 points, including single-handedly scoring the first 11 of the game. From there, the Heat went shockingly cold, setting season-worsts by shooting 17.6 percent in the first quarter and 27.5 percent in the half.
