MILWAUKEE (AP) — LeBron James scored 35 points and the Miami Heat finally found a way to beat Milwaukee, using a third-quarter surge to beat the Bucks 114-96 on Monday night.
Dwyane Wade scored 22 and Mario Chalmers added 13 for the Heat, who were 0-2 against the Bucks coming into Monday night’s game.
James scored 16 of his points in the third quarter as the Heat outscored the Bucks 35-24 to take control of the game.
Carlos Delfino scored 24 for the Bucks, who were coming off a loss to Orlando on Saturday night.
With the win, Miami ran its record to 22-7 — equaling the franchise’s best start after the first 29 games of a season, set in 1996-97 and again in 2004-05.
