Big Three, Heat hold off Bucks 88-78


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Dwyane Wade had 25 points and a career-high 14 rebounds back in the city where his career took off and the Miami Heat beat the Milwaukee Bucks 88-78 on Monday night for their fifth straight win.

LeBron James added 17 points and Chris Bosh had 16 points and 12 rebounds as Miami used a 17-2 run in the first half to take control, then weathered a 4 1/2-minute scoreless stretch in the fourth before James, Wade and Bosh hit clutch shots in the closing minutes.

Corey Maggette scored 20 points for the Bucks, but Milwaukee can't seem to figure out any team with James on the roster.

Since coach Scott Skiles and general manager John Hammond took over the organization, they are 0-8 against James' teams, only winning once when James did not play with the Cavaliers.
