Recap

Heat 113, Bucks 106 (OT) : Dwyane Wade and LeBron James scored 28 points apiece and Miami remained unbeaten at home by withstanding a stiff challenge from the Bucks and winning in overtime.

Wade shot 11-of-19 from the field in his return from a sore left foot and his biggest basket was a long jumper that gave Miami the lead for good just 15 seconds into overtime. James shot 11-of-21, grabbed 10 rebounds, handed out eight assists and his biggest rebound resulted in him scoring the game-tying layup with 26.9 seconds remaining in regulation.

Chris Bosh collected 24 points and a season-high 18 rebounds as Miami was outscored 83-69 in the final three periods before outscoring Milwaukee 15-8 in overtime. Ray Allen added 17 off the bench as Miami improved to 5-0 at home.

Brandon Jennings led the Bucks with 19 points but was just 9-of-25 from the floor and 1-of-8 from three-point range. Rookie John Henson had the best game of his brief career as he collected 17 points and 18 rebounds for his first career double-double.

The Heat had an 18-point lead on three different occasions in the second quarter and settled for a 46-44 lead at halftime. That set the tone for the rest of the night as Milwaukee took a 91-84 lead on Henson's jumper with 4:51 remaining but Miami scored 10 straight points and eventually forced overtime.

GAME NOTEBOOK:  Udonis Haslem became Miami's all-time leading rebounder with 2:37 remaining in the first quarter. He broke Alonzo Mourning's record of 4,807 and became the first undrafted player in NBA history to become a team's all-time leading rebounder when he snagged a missed layup by Monta Ellis. ... Milwaukee's Larry Sanders was ejected with 4:10 remaining in the first half after contesting a foul call, slamming the ball off the backboard and cursing at an official. ... Samuel Dalembert was 0-for-10 in his career on three-pointers before ending the first half with a buzzer-beater.
