record for most defeats in a season.  The Bucks (14-61) suffered their 61st loss of the season last night, falling to the Heat 96-77 in Miami.

It’s the Bucks 11th loss in the last 12 games and their 22nd loss in the last 23 road games.

Lebron James had 17 points and Chris Bosh 15 as the Miami Heat stayed percentage points in front of the Indiana Pacers.

Ramon Sessions scored a team high 19 points, but the Bucks as a team shot just 43% from the field and turned it over 17 times.  Not exactly a great birthday gift for head coach Larry Drew, who turned 56 years old on Wednesday.

The Bucks ave seven games left in the season, starting with a trip to Chicago to face the Bulls on Friday night.
