(Newser) – Milwaukee became the first team to lose twice to Miami this season thanks to the play of late replacement Chris Quinn, who scored a career-high 24 points in a 78-73 Heat win. Quinn filled in for Jason Williams, who had a right thumb injury, writes AP. It was the second win in 13 games for Miami - both against the Bucks.

These clearly aren't your 2006 champion Heat, as five of nine players in Miami's lineup played in the NBA Development League earlier this month. Milwaukee led by 10 points midway through the second quarter but the Heat battled back pulling within 37-32 at halftime. Michael Redd, with 24 points, led the struggling Bucks, who are 2-8 in their last 10 games.
