The Milwaukee Bucks lost to the Miami Heat in overtime on Wednesday night by a final score of 113 – 106. This game appeared to be over midway through the 2nd quarter. The Bucks were down 18, and couldn’t make a shot. However, they were still playing hard. Then the Larry Sanders Show got himself tossed out midway through the 2nd after a double technical following a bad foul call against Wade. This inspired the Bucks, and they went on a 13-0 run, and closed the 2nd quarter with a 20-5 run and were only down 44-42 at the half. Damn, Dalembert even made a 3 ball to close out the half (it was his career first). In the second half, the Bucks continued to make a game of it. A John Henson tip in at the buzzer gave the Bucks a 73-71 lead at the end of the 3rd. Henson continued to contribute into the 4th quarter and really had a great game. He finished with 17 points, 18 rebounds and played tough defense. The Bucks had about a 7 point lead with 5 minutes left. Unfortunately, it then became Lebron time, and the Bucks could not contain him as he scored and created shots at will to give the Heat a 1 point lead with 1:30 left. Guess that is why he is the MVP. Things got real interesting then. Dunleavy then hit a crazy leaner with the foul, and hit the freethrow to give the Bucks a 2 point lead. Wade then hit a runner in the paint for the tie. Udoh threw in a jump hook to give the Bucks the lead. Bosh missed a three, but god damn Lebron got the board and scored to tie it up with 26 sec left. The Bucks then ran an isolation for Ellis, and he shot a contested 17 footer with 7 secs left (stupid play). Henson got the rebound, but basically shot (threw it over the backboard) too quickly, leaving the Heat 1.4 to work with. Wade had a shot at a fadeaway on the baseline for the win, but Ellis blocked it. In overtime, the game stopped being interesting. Bucks only mustered 2 points in the first 4 mins of overtime, to the Heats 9. It was over pretty quick. McGlocklin was imagining the Bucks getting stops, then a score, another stop, a score, and a stop and your back in it. Basically, the Bucks never showed up for overtime, and the Heat superathletes were too much. There was a great opportunity here for the Bucks to steal one. Would have liked to see a better play than the Ellis isolation at the end of regulation. There was no other action on court. Just clear out for Ellis v Wade. Yes, Wade is coming off an injury, but there didn’t seem to be any indication it was slowing him down. Illyasova was again a non factor for the most part – he had 4 lousy points, and did nothing else. This team needs him to start contributing. Ellis needs to make a three every now and then, or he should just stop shooting them. Jennings had 19 points, 6 assists, and I believe 4 steals. Jennings also hit a number of tear drop runners that were hard to believe – I should really implement that shot into my game. James and Wade each had 28 for the Heat. And it seemed like they had kind of quiet games – crazy. Bucks have the Bulls next. They dropped to 6-4 with tonights loss. Gotta get the next one. In other news: 1) Kevin Love returned to the Minnesota Timberwolves earlier than expected following his hand injury sustained about a month ago. Finally, a positive health related development for a team depleted by injuries.
