Bucks strong 4th Quarter beats the Heat

Brandon Jennings poured in 25 points and Mike Dunleavy added 18 (13 in 4th quarter) to lead the Milwaukee Bucks to a 104-85 win over the Miami Heat on Saturday night.

Lebron James had 25 and Dwyane Wade returned to the Miami lineup after serving a 1-game suspension to score 24 points in the loss.

The Bucks lead 56-44 at the half, then missed its first 12 shots to start the 3rd quarter.  Miami used the Bucks cold shooting to take a 60-58 lead.  But the Bucks regained control and their shooting touch, going on a 16-0 run late in the 3rd and into the 4th quarter.

That Bucks run sent them back in front 84-75 and they pulled away from there.

Luc Richard Mbah a Moute scored 19 points and Larry Sanders added 16 points, 11 rebounds and 4 blocked shots.

The Bucks improved to 16-12 with the win, their best 28-game start since the start of the 2005-06 season when they started 17-11.

The Bucks face the Pistons in Detroit tonight.
