The Miami Heat (20-8) have now dropped two in a row by double digits following a 104-85 loss to the 16-12 Milwaukee Bucks at the Bradley Center on Saturday night.
That's now two wins in a row for the Bucks, who beat Miami in a convincing manner before the home crowd.
Milwaukee saw four of its starters score at least 14 points and Mike Dunleavy come off the bench to score 18 points, snatch nine rebounds and dish six assists.
LeBron James led the scoring for Miami, netting 26 points on 11-of-20 shooting. James also added six rebounds and seven assists.
The Bucks were able to get some revenge on the Heat, who beat Milwaukee 113-106 in an overtime thriller on Nov. 21.
Player of the Game: Brandon Jennings
Brandon Jennings is one of the most underrated point guards in the NBA, and he certainly put his talents on display against the defending champs.
Jennings got it done in all facets of the game, scoring 25 points and dishing seven assists while never turning the ball over.
The third-year guard also added four steals and two rebounds while shooting an even 50 percent (8-of-16) from the field.
Dunleavy was exceptional on Saturday night, but Jennings was the best out there for Milwaukee.
Up Next for Heat
The Heat will travel to Orlando to face the 12-18 Magic on Monday evening at 5 p.m. ET in an attempt to avoid a three-game slide.
Up Next for Bucks
The Bucks don't have much time to rest, as they'll hop on a plane Saturday night and travel to Detroit to take on the 10-22 Pistons on Sunday at 7:30 p.m. ET.
