Found April 28, 2013 on Fox Sports:
Miami's Big Three finally have their sweep. LeBron James scored 30, Ray Allen had another big game against his old team and the Miami Heat advanced to the Eastern Conference semifinals with an 88-77 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday. It's the first time the Heat have swept a playoff series since James and Chris Bosh joined Dwyane Wade in Miami three years ago. And the Heat didn't even need Wade to do it. The guard missed only the second postseason game of his career, and first since 2005, with three bone bruises on his right knee. But the Heat still won handily, winning their fourth straight game by double digits. Wade will get plenty of time to rest now, too. The Heat will face the winner of the Brooklyn Nets-Chicago Bulls series -- Chicago leads 3-1 -- but the next round won't begin until next Saturday.
