(MILWAUKEE) — Milwaukee guard Brandon Jennings stunned the Miami Heat (16-6) on Wednesday hitting three huge three pointers to seal the Bucks’ 105-97 win over Miami.
Even with 40 points from LeBron James, Miami was unable to make big stops down the stretch and allowed Jennings to run up 31 points on them.
“Me and LeBron looked at each other,” Jennings said. “I said, ’40?’ He said, ‘You’ve got 31, though.'”
This was the second win for Milwaukee (10-11) after they beat the Heat 91-82 on Jan. 22.
“You always give credit where credit is due,” James said. “They made some shots in the third quarter and fourth quarter. They got back into it. They made a run. We held it as much as possible.”
