Heat Vs. Bucks Score Update: Looking To Avenge Two Prior Losses, Miami Leads Milwaukee By Five At Half

The Miami Heat are looking to get their first win of the season against the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday night. The Bucks have beaten the Heat in their first two matchups this season, and are responsible for one of Miami's two home losses this year. After one half, the Heat lead 55-50 on the dynamic play of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.

James and Wade are a combined 13 of 19 from the floor so far. Wade has a game-high 16 points while LeBron is right there behind him with 15 points. Mike Miller had the hot hand off the bench, hitting three of four attempts from behind the arc and adding nine points against Scott Skiles's defense.

Carlos Delfino is the only Buck in double figures, hitting three three-pointers and finishing the half with 13 points. The Heat will have to continue the pace on the offensive end if they want to get their first win of the season against this pesky Bucks team.
