Bucks Vs. Heat Score Update: Miami Leads By Three After First Quarter Against Milwaukee

The Miami Heat are looking to make it four wins in a row on Sunday evening with the Milwaukee Bucks visiting American Airlines Arena. After one quarter, the Heat lead 21-18. Miami is once again playing without franchise guard Dwyane Wade, who sprained his ankle over a week ago against the Denver Nuggets. The Heat are 5-0 this season without Wade.

LeBron James leads the Heat with six points through the first 12 minutes. James has also already grabbed four boards, as he continues to dominate and pick up the slack with Wade sidelined.

It was a sloppy first quarter for Miami, which committed seven turnovers that largely kept the Bucks close and only down three points. Point guard Mario Chalmers committed three turnovers alone.
