NBA: Bucks burn Heat despite Wade’s return
MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin—Brandon Jennings scored 25 points and Cameroon’s Luc Richard Mbah a Moute added 19 for Milwaukee Saturday in a 104-85 victory over reigning NBA champions the Miami Heat.
Jennings added seven assists and four steals, while Mbah a Moute grabbed seven rebounds for a Bucks team that has won three of their last four games.
Mike Dunleavy added 18 points, nine rebounds and six assists for Milwaukee, while Larry Sanders scored 16 points and grabbed 11 rebounds.
The defeat marked just the second time this season the Heat have dropped back-to-back games.
On Friday, the NBA champions fell 109-99 in front of a sell-out crowd in Detroit.
Wade missed that game, serving a one-game suspension for a kick that caught Charlotte guard Ramon Sessions in the groin earlier in the week.
Prior to the game Wade said he just wanted to “move on” in the wake of the suspension. He scored 24 points with six rebounds, while teammate LeBron James led all scorers with 26 points.
James added seven assists and six rebounds, and Chris Bosh contributed 12 points and 16 rebounds, but it wasn’t enough.
