Heat cruise past Bucks for seventh straight win

Heat cruise past Bucks for seventh straight win”

Anthony Davis poured in a season-high 48 points and grabbed 17 rebounds as the Pelicans beat the Knicks 123-118 in overtime. "If you start thinking like that, if you're satisfied with that, then it's not going to be pretty for us".

The Bucks, who are just 3-5 in their past eight games, were led by 6-foot-11 forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, who entered Sunday ranked second in the National Basketball Association with a 28.5 scoring average.

"Our guys really stepped it up", said Spoelstra, who now has 12 winning streaks of at least seven games in his tenure as Heat coach.

However, much like the end of the first, the Heat stormed back to rattle off a 8-2 run to trail 43-41 heading into the half.

The Heat, a tad sluggish to start, used a 14-0 second-half scoring run to notch their seventh straight victory, tying the Eastern Conference-leading Boston Celtics for the longest active winning streak in the league. Middleton added 16, Brogdon had 15 and Bledsoe scored 10 for Milwaukee.

"They've won 7 in a row now and they're playing hard on both ends", Bucks coach Jason Kidd said. "We've got some guys who can't make shots right now".

"John Wall is one of the guys that, no matter how the game goes for him, he keeps making plays and he's added the midrange shot, the 3-point shot, and I like the way he plays".

The Bucks got off to a 6-0 start and led by as many as eight points in the first quarter.

"Dragon hit those 3s", said Bledsoe, Dragic's former teammate in Phoenix.

"It took us a little bit of time to adjust to their speed and their trapping and how they help and protect the paint. Unfortunately, he made them". Against Miami, he was held to 22 points and six rebounds.

The 1 p.m. tip-off was mandated because league rules require a 24-hour period between games. The Bucks play in Brooklyn at noon on February 4 - Super Bowl Sunday. But after that stretch, 18 of the final 29 regular-season contests are at home with no remaining road trip longer than three games. The Heat improved to 9-0 when holding teams under 90 points this season. It was in the third quarter where the game swung completely in the Heat's favor, thanks to a disastrous third quarter from the Bucks.

James and the Cavaliers face a tough clash with the reigning champion Golden State Warriors on Monday, part of the NBA's slate of marquee matches celebrating the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. The Bucks and Knicks had similar schedules on this weekend past year, but the Heat haven't had early starts on consecutive days since March 2009. The Wizards, Bulls and Nets all had Sunday off. Goran Dragic is averaging 17 points and 4.9 assists while Hassan Whiteside is averaging 14 points and 11.8 rebounds. Sunday's appearance was his 37th in Miami's last 115 games. The Heat play at Chicago Monday at 3:30 pm, causing the early start.
