Bucks (15-12) vs. Miami Heat (20-7).

WHEN: 7:30 p.m. Saturday.

WHERE: BMO Harris Bradley Center.

BROADCASTS: TV - FS Wisconsin. Radio - AM-620.

ABOUT THE HEAT: Former Marquette star Dwyane Wade will return to the lineup after serving a one-game suspension Friday night at Detroit. The Heat's 109-99 loss Friday ended a six-game winning streak that included a 103-97 victory in a showdown with Oklahoma City on Christmas Day in a rematch of last season's NBA Finals. LeBron James has scored 20 or more points in the first 27 games this season, the longest such streak to open a season since Boston's Kevin McHale did it in 28 straight games in the 1986-'87 season. James, Wade and Chris Bosh combined to score 70 points in the Heat's 105-92 victory at Charlotte on Wednesday. Mike Miller replaced Wade in the starting unit Friday and Ray Allen returned after missing one game with a sore right shoulder.

It'll be interesting to see if the Bucks can stay competitive for 4 quarters. It was a good game for over 3 quarters the first time the teams played.

that third quarter start was awful, but then they end up going on a 35 to 5 run! Incredible. And great balance on the Bucks for scoring, as opposed to the Heat.

I am also amused that the Heat decided the game was over with 3 1/2 minutes to go.

Big win for a Bucks team that's over-flowing with confidence right now.
