MIAMI (AP) -- LeBron James scored 28 points in 30 minutes, Udonis Haslem had his first double-double of the season and the Miami Heat moved a step closer to wrapping up home-court advantage throughout the NBA playoffs by topping the Milwaukee Bucks 94-83 on Tuesday night. The Heat tied a franchise single-season record by winning for the 61st time, getting there with five games remaining. Miami needs only one more win or one San Antonio loss to clinch the top overall seed for the entirety of the playoffs. Haslem finished with 10 points and 15 rebounds for Miami, which played without an injured Dwyane Wade and an ill Chris Bosh. Norris Cole and Ray Allen each scored 11 for the Heat. Brandon Jennings scored 30 points for the Bucks, who will likely meet Miami in a first-round Eastern Conference playoff series.
