The Heat led by as many as 18, lost the lead, and rallied from seven points down in the fourth quarter to force overtime.
And finished the deal.
LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh combined for 80 points and 31 rebounds to beat the Bucks 113-106. And they all shot over 50 percent from the field. Wade and James had a parallel 28-point performance on 11-of-21 shooting.
The Milwaukee Bucks led 81-74 with 4:50 left on a John Henson jumper before the Heat scored 10 in a row and went ahead on a Ray Allen 3-pointer. The game went back and forth before the teams went to overtime tied at 98.
In overtime, the Heat ran much of their offense through Wade, who had arguably his best game of the season and scored his second most points in a game in 2012-13. Wade opened the overtime with a jumper and an assist to James, and Allen ultimately iced the game with a 3-pointer to put the Heat up 109-100 with a minute to go.
The Heat outscored the Bucks 15-8 in the extra period.
Brandon Jennings led the Bucks with 19 points on a poor 9-for-25 shooting performance. Henson scored 17 points and grabbed 18 rebounds, at times single handedly keeping the Bucks in the game late.
