MILWAUKEE, April 28 (UPI) -- LeBron James struck for 30 points, eight rebounds and seven assists Sunday, boosting Miami to an 88-77 win over Milwaukee and a first-round playoff sweep.

Ray Allen came off the bench to drain four 3-pointers en route to 16 points and grabbed seven rebounds for the Heat, who eliminated the Bucks 4-0 in their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series and will play the winner of the other conference quarterfinal between Chicago and Brooklyn.

The Bulls lead the Nets 3-1 in that series, with Game 5 scheduled for Monday in Brooklyn.

Udonis Haslem added 13 points with five rebounds and Chris Bosh chipped in with 10 points and five rebounds for Miami, which used a 19-5 run in the fourth quarter to put the contest away.

All-star guard Dwyane Wade sat out the game with a sore right knee in a game-time decision.

Monta Ellis supplied 21 points, eight assists and five rebounds and Mike Dunleavy added 17 points off the bench for Milwaukee.
