Notes from Game 2

The Heat's 12-point burst to begin the fourth quarter was enough to distance itself from the Bucks in an uneven game. Miami now leads the series 2-0 with Game 3 on Thursday in Milwaukee. Before I board my plane, some notes ...

—The Heat has won 10 straight overall and has won 39 of its last 41 games dating back to Feb.2.

—Since 2010-11, the Heat is 22-4 in the postseason at AmericanAirlines Arena.

—Bench players scored 25 of Miami's 30 points in the fourth quarter. Overall, the bench had 36 poins. In the first two games of the series, the Heat's bench has scored 79 points.

—Chris Andersen had 10 points and six rebounds in about 12 1/2 minutes. What?

—Solid game for Mario Chalmers (4 of 6 from nine points), who is now one three-pointer away from tying Tim Hardaway for most all-time in postseason franchise history.

—Ray Allen is three three-pointers away from tying Reggie Miller (320) for the most three-point field goals made in postseason history.

—A note on bragging: In my Pre-Game 2 Q&A on the blog, I nailed the point spread and the numbers of field goals by Chris Andersen.

—Andersen had eight points and five rebounds in the fourth quarter.

—LeBron's 19 points snapped a 22-game streak of postseason games with at least 20 points. Tuesday was the first time in 17 playoff games for James to score fewer than 25 points.
