MIAMI -- Udonis Haslem set the Miami Heat career rebounding record, and his team bounced back from some middle-of-the-game lapses to beat the Milwaukee Bucks, 113-106, in overtime, Wednesday night. The Heat (9-3) improved to 5-0 at home -- but not before blowing all of their 18-point lead and falling behind by 7 in the final minutes. Dwyane Wade and LeBron James, who both battled the flu on Miami's recently completed 4-2 road trip, took over in OT and each finished with 28 points. James added 10 rebounds and 8 assists -- nearly a triple-double. Heat forward Chris Bosh also starred with 24 points and 18 rebounds.

Guard Brandon Jennings led the Bucks with 19 points, but Milwaukee shot just 17.2 percent on 3-pointers (5 of 29). The Bucks (6-4) have played tough in rival arenas. They are now 3-2 on the road after they won their first three away from home. Haslem, who ...
