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. Wade, who missed three games on the trip due to the flu and a sprained left foot, made 11 of 20 shots. 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 entered the game trailing Alonzo Mourning by just one rebound, tied the record when he grabbed a missed jumper by Monta Ellis with 3:48 left in the first quarter. Haslem broke the record with 2:37 left in the quarter when he rebounded a missed layup by Ellis. Mourning's old record was 4,807 rebounds. Even though he became the first undrafted player in NBA history to lead his team in rebounds, Haslem's milestone was overshadowed by the late-game heroics. In the third quarter, Jennings and Wade became involved in a shootout. Jennings had nine points in the quarter to help his team take a 73-71 lead. Wade had 10 points in the third period. Wade had a chance to be the hero at the end of regulation, but his fade-away jumper with less than a second left was blocked from behind by Ellis. The Heat led 46-44 at the half, but it hardly seemed like a close matchup at the start. Miami had 8-0 and 15-0 runs in the first quarter and led by as many as 18 points early in the second period. That's when the Bucks made their run, which was capped by a very unusual play. Bucks center Samuel Dalembert, playing his 11th season in the NBA, averages one three-point shot per year -- and he always misses. That is, until Wednesday night, when he made his first-career three-pointer on his 11th attempt. That shot closed a first half that featured the Heat's "Big Three" in fine form -- Wade and Bosh with 12 points each and James with 10. Bosh also had nine rebounds. Jennings led the Bucks with 8 points, but Ellis struggled with his shooting (1 for 7) and had just two points at the break. The Heat had a 27-20 edge in rebounds and held the Bucks to 20 percent (3 of 15) on three-pointers. NOTES: Bucks forward Larry Sanders, upset at being called for a foul, was ejected with 4:10 left in the first half. ... Next up for the Bucks is a home game Saturday against the Bulls before traveling to Chicago for a game on Monday. ... Next up for the Heat is a home game Saturday night against LeBron James' old team, the Cavaliers. ... Jennings has improved his shooting percentage every season he's been in the NBA, from 37 to 39 to 42 to 44 percent entering Wednesday.
