NBA Preview from The Sports Network

Wednesday, December 20th (All times eastern)

Miami Heat (11-13) at Milwaukee Bucks (10-14), 8 p.m.

(Sports Network) - The Miami Heat attempt to extend their winning streak to three games, as they visit the Milwaukee Bucks tonight at the Bradley Center.

On Monday, All-Star Dwyane Wade banked in the game-winning jump shot with 1.3 seconds left to lead the Heat over the New Orleans/Oklahoma City Hornets, 101-99, at AmericanAirlines Arena.

Wade posted 29 points, five rebounds, nine assists and four steals in the win over the Hornets for the Heat, who have split their last six contests. Udonis Haslem ended with 16 points and seven boards, while Jason Williams and James Posey both netted 15 in the victory.

Miami is 5-6 on the road this season. The Heat return home to host the Golden State Warriors on Friday and Kobe Bryant and the Lakers on Christmas Day.

The Bucks conclude a short two-game homestand. On Saturday, Michael Redd and Maurice Williams both scored 28 points as Milwaukee edged the Minnesota Timberwolves, 108-104, at the Bradley Center.

Andrew Bogut contributed 16 points and a game-high 11 rebounds, while Charlie Bell scored 16 off the bench for the Bucks, who snapped a two-game losing skid.

On the injury front for Milwaukee, forward Charlie Villanueva (right shoulder tendinitis) is questionable for tonight's game. Villanueva did not play against Minnesota and has missed a total of 11 games this season. He is averaging 14.7 points and 6.7 rebounds for the Bucks.

Milwaukee is 6-4 at the Bradley Center this season. The Bucks have won four in a row at home. They will visit Kevin Garnett and the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday at the Target Center.

Miami has won three of its last four at Milwaukee. The Heat have won three straight and eight of the last nine games in this series.
