(MIAMI) — Chris Bosh pulled down 18 rebounds, the Miami Heat scored the first six points in overtime and the Heat got past the Milwaukee Bucks 113-106 in overtime Wednesday night.
The Heat grabbed a 94-91 lead late in the fourth on a Ray Allen three-pointer, but the Bucks came back and tied the game. Tied at 98, the Bucks had a chance to win the game but could not convert.
“Small margin of error against that team,” Bucks coach Scott Skiles said. “And we still had a shot to win the game. It just didn’t go in.”
Udonis Haslem became Heat’s all-time leading rebounder after pulling down his 4,808th in the first quarter.
“We’ve got to just continue to get better,” Heat forward LeBron James said. “We came out for a quarter and a half and played some good basketball and then we kind of got laxed offensively, had some turnovers and let them get back into the game.”
