Heat Vs. Bucks: Miami Blows Big Lead, Loses 105-97

The Miami Heat looked like they were on their way to blow out the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night after a 40 point first quarter, including LeBron James putting up 24 points on his own, but the Bucks never quit and rallied back. Even at halftime when the Bucks trailed 60-47, they kept fighting and on the back of Brandon Jennings and his 31 points, the Bucks eventually pulled out the victory.

James ended the night scoring 40 points for the Heat, but James only scored 16 points in the final three quarters of the game after his explosion in the first period. The Bucks defense clamped down on the Heat and Miami just couldn't stop the steady scoring of the Bucks throughout the game.
