The NBA's top player gave the home crowd a show, scoring a game high 33 points as he made 13 of 21 shots on the night. Recent addition Michael Beasley had his best game of the year, dropping in 19 points off the bench as the Heat won every quarter and never let the Bucks into the game.
Milwaukee had 18 turnovers, made just 33 field goals in the game, and the starters had just 35 points in total, but their was some good news for the Bucks. John Henson and Gary Neal both scored 18 points coming off the bench and despite limited minutes, the reserves scored 60 points on the night.
Miami improved to 5-3, including 4-1 at the American Airlines Arena, but teams around the league have discovered a chink in the armor and the Heat will need to tighten their defense and rebound better against the tougher teams or the risk losing the title this season.
Milwaukee dropped to 2-4 as injuries have already become an issue, but the spark from the bench should create a bit of optimism as the Bucks try to become playoff contenders.
