NBA Game Summary - Miami at Milwaukee
(Wednesday, December 20th)
Final Score: Milwaukee 121, Miami 95
Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Mo Williams posted 19 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists for his first-career triple-double, as the Milwaukee Bucks pounded the Miami Heat, 121-95, at the Bradley Center.
"I'm happy for Mo [Williams]," Milwaukee coach Terry Stotts said. "It's a credit to him. He pushed the ball. He made good decisions in transition. He found guys. His rebounding all year has been very good. To get a triple-double is not an easy feat, anyways."
Michael Redd scored a game-high 28 points for the Bucks, who won their second straight. Andrew Bogut had 17 points and Charlie Bell chipped in with 16 points.
Forward Charlie Villanueva (right shoulder tendinitis), who has missed a total of 11 games this season, returned to score 16 points on 5-of-8 shooting.
Dwyane Wade posted 27 points and eight assists for the Heat, who failed to extend their winning streak to three games. Dorell Wright scored 14 points and Antoine Walker added 13 points and eight boards.
Milwaukee jumped out to an early 30-22 first-quarter lead. Miami went on a 17-5 run early in the second capped by an Alonzo Mourning hook shot with 5:25 to take a one-point lead, and led 56-53 at halftime.
The Bucks closed the third on a 15-5 run snapped by a Walker layup at the buzzer to take an 83-71 advantage into the fourth, in which they outscored the Heat by 14 to preserve the win.
"We just couldn't make anything in the second half," Miami coach Pat Riley said. "We missed layups, we missed jump shots, wide open threes, just didn't get to the free throw line."
Miami shot 35-for-77 from the floor, compared to 43-for-82 by the Bucks, who outrebounded the Heat 43-34.
Miami has won three of its last five at Milwaukee. The Heat had a three-game winning streak snapped but have won eight of the last 10 games in this series.
