Miami Heat Team Report – February 29

=== Miami Heat Team Report – February 29 ===

(Sports Network) – The Miami Heat will try and put the brakes on a two-game
losing streak this afternoon when they wrap up a brief two-game road trip
against the Milwaukee Bucks at the Bradley Center.

The Heat got their trip off on the wrong foot on Saturday, as they found
themselves on the wrong end of a 92-86 decision against the New Jersey Nets at
Continental Airlines Arena.

Eddie Jones paced Miami with 21 points. Rookie Dwyane Wade contributed 17
points, nine boards and seven assists for the Heat, but turned the ball over
10 times.

Caron Butler had 18 points for Miami, which had won four in a row prior to
this skid.

The Heat, who will return home for four games following today’s affair, have
dropped 10 of their last 14 on the road and are 8-23 away from home this
season.

Miami lost earlier in the season to the Bucks and have dropped four straight
in the series. The Heat have also dropped four of six and six of nine in
Milwaukee.
