James Has 22 Points as Miami Heat Move Within Win of NBA Sweep

LeBron James scored 22 points and the Miami Heat used a 30-8 second-half run to take control in a 104-91 win tonight at the Milwaukee Bucks that gave the defending champions a three-games-to-none playoff series lead.

Miami can complete a first-round sweep in Game 4 of the best-of-seven National Basketball Association series on April 28 in Milwaukee.

Ray Allen had 23 points for Miami, including five 3-pointers -- setting an NBA postseason record with 322 shots made beyond the 3-point line. The old record of 320 was held by Reggie Miller.

The Heat trailed by two points at halftime and were behind 61-55 midway through the third period before going on their decisive run, which lasted until early in the fourth quarter.

The Brooklyn Nets are playing tonight at the Chicago Bulls with that series tied 1-1. The Los Angeles Clippers are seeking a 3-0 advantage at the Memphis Grizzlies.
