MILWAUKEE (AP) — Brandon Jennings scored 31 points, including three 3-pointers in a critical stretch of the fourth quarter, and Milwaukee beat Miami 105-97 on Wednesday night for the Bucks’ second win over the Heat this season.
Jennings also had eight assists while Drew Gooden added 17 points and nine rebounds for the Bucks, who have won three straight.
LeBron James scored a season-high 40 points, including a highlight-reel windmill dunk at the end of his huge first quarter. James had 24 points in the first quarter, the most points any player has scored in a quarter this season, according to STATS LLC.
Dwyane Wade added 23 points for the Heat, but it wasn’t enough to beat a Bucks team that also recently knocked off the Los Angeles Lakers.
