MILWAUKEE -- Things looked bleak for the Milwaukee Bucks. After surrendering a 12-point halftime lead with a brutal start to the third quarter, the Bucks trailed Miami by nine, and it looked like the defending NBA champs were just finding their groove. But things changed quickly and six straight points to close out the third quarter turned into a 19-2 run and eventually a 104-85 victory in front of a sellout crowd of 18,717 at BMO Harris Bradley Center. Brandon Jennings led the way once again, scoring 25 points with seven assists and four steals. He was one of five Milwaukee players to score in double digits.

Mike Dunleavy came off the bench to score 18, 13 of which came in the fourth quarter, as Milwaukee went up by as many as 21 points and shot 52 ...

Monta Ellis: I would put myself in the same category as Dwyane Wade (Video)
