Game 4: James scores 30 to lead Heat to sweep of Bucks
MILWAUKEE -- LeBron James can cross another item off his to-do list.
James scored 30 points, Ray Allen had another big game against his old team and the Miami Heat got their first playoff sweep in the Big Three era, advancing to the Eastern Conference semifinals with an 88-77 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday.
"It was our next big step as far as our growth," James said. "It's so hard to win on the road in the playoffs, in someone's building -- especially when someone is playing for their last life. It's a big step for us."
And now the Heat have some much-needed time to rest. Dwyane Wade sat out Sunday's game, only the second post-season game he's missed in his career, because of his aching right knee. But with Miami not playing until next Saturday, at the earliest, he'll have plenty of time to treat the three bone bruises that caused him to miss six games near the end of the regular season.
