Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Bucks outscore Heat 35-14 in the fourth quarter of their 19-point win.

The Milwaukee Bucks rode a dominant fourth-quarter performance to a surprising 104-85 win over the Miami Heat Saturday night. The Bucks let a 12-point halftime lead slip away in the third quarter, but outscored the defending champs 35-14 in the fourth. It was the second win of the week for Milwaukee, and the second loss in as many nights for the Heat.

Brandon Jennings led the Bucks (16-12) with 25 points and seven assists. Monta Ellis added a team-high nine assists, along with 14 points and five steals. Luc Richard Mbah a Moute had 19 points, and center Larry Sanders scored 16 and grabbed 11 rebounds. Mike Dunleavy came off the bench to score 18 points, his highest point total since Nov. 3. Dunleavy also contributed nine rebounds and six assists to the Bucks win.

Miami (20-8) was led by 26 points, six rebounds and seven assists from Lebron James. The reigning MVP committed six of Miami's 20 turnovers, however. Dwyane Wade scored 24 points, along with six rebounds and four assists. Chris Bosh scored 12 points and grabbed 16 boards. Outside the Big 3, Miami scored just 23 points, and the team shot 4-of-13 from behind the arc.

Milwaukee plays at Detroit Sunday, while Miami faces Orlando Monday.
