MIAMI, April 23 (UPI) -- LeBron James provided 19 points, eight rebounds and six assists Tuesday, boosting Miami to a 98-86 win and a 2-0 first-round series lead over Milwaukee.

Dwyane Wade netted 21 points and grabbed seven boards for the Heat, who weren't able to shake off the pesky Bucks until going on a 12-0 run to begin the fourth quarter.

Ersan Ilyasova led Milwaukee with 21 points and six rebounds in the loss.

The Bucks were hampered by poor games from top scorers Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis, who managed just a combined 15 points on 5-of-22 shooting.

Milwaukee will host Thursday's Game 3.
