Bucks Vs. Heat Score Update: Cold Second Quarter For Miami Gives Milwaukee A Five-Point Halftime Lead

The Milwaukee Bucks lead the Miami Heat 46-41 after two quarters at American Airlines Arena. Miami is playing its fourth game of the week, and is on the second night of a back-to-back. It showed in the second quarter, as the Heat had tired legs and struggled to get anything going offensively. They had just seven points through the first six plus minutes of the quarter. They're shooting just 35.5 percent from the floor, and have had little contributions from anyone other than LeBron James.

Playing without Dwyane Wade, James saw increased opportunities on the offensive end of the floor and finished the half with 20 points. As he is wont to do, LeBron has had a field day getting to the free-throw line, where he has hit 10 of a 11 attempts. Milwaukee is shooting woefully from the floor as well, hitting just one of 16 attempts from behind the arc. They've managed to limit turnovers while capitalizing on 11 Miami giveaways to take the five-point lead.
