A dream start turned into a nightmare finish for the Miami Heat against the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday.
The Miami Heat play host to the Milwaukee Bucks at the American Airlines Arena on Friday night.
However, this particular 15-point win came with a bit of National Basketball Association history, as the Bucks actually trailed by 20 points after 24 minutes of action before an incredible charge following the halftime break. Miami, which took a 62-42 lead, scored only 36 points after halftime, shooting 28.2 percent from the floor in the second half. When the All-Star returned with 5:51 to play, the Heat trailed 100-90 thanks to a 33-point night by Giannis Antetokounmpo and another 21 points from Middleton. It's a process. You've got to win games like this.
Meanwhile, the Miami Heat have been on a nice run themselves as they've won six of their last eight games and they will be looking to stay hot after making light work of the Pistons in a 108-74 home win on Wednesday.More news: New Zealand mosque attacks death toll hits 50
Hassan Whiteside had 14 points and 11 rebounds for the Heat, Josh Richardson scored 11 points and Dwyane Wade was one of four players with 10 for Miami.
With the Heat's loss, Miami (32-36) remains one game ahead of both the Orlando Magic and Charlotte Hornets for the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference. Khris Middleton and Eric Bledsoe had 21 and 17 points, respectively for the Bucks, who top the National Basketball Association with 52 wins, including 25 on the road.
Wade got hurt late in the third quarter, grabbing at his right hip.

In 64 starts this season, Brogdon is averaging a career-high 15.6 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game. Miami signed guard Charles Cooke to a 10-day contract before the game.
The Bucks gained control in the fourth quarter as the Heat struggled to find offense, outscoring Miami 34-18.
