It wasn't easy, but the Miami Heat extended its perfect start to the season at home (5-0 this year) with an 113-106 overtime victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Lebron James almost recorded a triple-double with 28 points, 10 rebounds and 8 assists to lead the Heat while Brandon Jennings led the Bucks with 19 points.

James got support from Dwyane Wade who, still recovering from injury, added 28 points of his own with Chris Bosh finishing out the "Big Three" with 24 points.

Both teams also had great performances off the bench with John Henson and Ray Allen adding 17 points for their teams.

It was a game of momentum and lead changes throughout the match. The Heat was the first to sprint forward to an 18-point lead as the Bucks suffered with their shooting to start the game.

Unfortunately, the Heat would be unable to hold on to the lead, falling behind before a 10-0 run in the fourth quarter extended play.

Lost in the box score, Udonis Haslem with 2 points and 8 rebounds on the bench but with a historic twist, passing Alonzo Mourning as the all-time leading rebounder early in the first quarter.
