MILWAUKEE, WI (WSAU) The 21st straight win for the Miami Heat came against a Bucks team which has given them some troubles. LeBron James and Chris Bosh scored 28 points apiece in a 107-94 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks last night at the Bradley Center..
Only the 1971-72 Los Angeles Lakers with 33 and the 2007-08 Houston Rockets with 22 have won more consecutive games.
The Heat did get a scare when Dwayne Wade fell to the court in the early minutes. Ersan Ilyasova led the Bucks with a double-double, grabbing a season-high 17 rebounds while scoring 26 points. Brandon Jennings had 21.
Milwaukee had a hard time finding the range, connecting on just 37 percent of its floor shots. And, Larry Sanders was ejected for the second straight game, picking up two technicals after a foul call with less than three minutes to go.
Miami dominated most of the way, but the Bucks did cut the lead to six, 85-79, with nine minutes to go in the final period. They got no closer the rest of the way.
