Milwaukee Bucks vs. Miami Heat: Postgame Grades and Analysis
Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images

It was nice of the Miami Heat to let the Milwaukee Bucks hang around with them for the first three quarters of Game 2, before sending them packing, 98-86.

With the score 68-65 in favor of the Heat heading into the fourth quarter, the Heat's second unit decided to put the Bucks away for good with a 12-0 run to kick off the final frame. 

Norris Cole and Chris Andersen had a hand in every basket of that run, and the Heat never looked back. 

Dwyane Wade led all scorers with 21 points, and he had a well-balanced night with seven rebounds, three assists and two steals.

After scoring 15 points on 5-of-6 shooting in the first half, LeBron James scored just four points on 1-of-8 shooting in the second half, which isn't something that Heat fans are used to seeing. 

Luckily for the Heat, Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis had an absolutely awful night, combining for just 15 points on 5-of-22 shooting from the field.

The Bucks will need Jennings to lead them to four straight wins if they are going to win this series in six games. But in all honesty, it looks like the Heat have their minds set on a clean sweep.
