MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Kendall Marshall came off the bench and scored a season-high 20 points, including three big 3-pointers in the fourth quarter, as the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Miami Heat 109-85 on Friday night.

The Bucks' bench was the key to snapping the team's three-game losing streak as it outscored the Heat's bench 60-18, led by Khris Middleton's 14 points, Jerryd Bayless' 12 and Jared Dudley's eight.

Milwaukee's starters helped out, too. Jabari Parker and Giannis Antetokounmpo each had 14 points and Brandon Knight added 13.

Dwyane Wade led the Heat with 28 points and Chris Bosh added 21 points as Miami opened their five-game road trip with a third straight loss.

The Bucks started the fourth with a nine-point lead and pushed it to 89-72 on the first of Marshall's 3-pointers with 8:04 left to play. Milwaukee kept up its attack and capitalized on the Heats' inability to score. Miami missed its first five shots and didn't score from the floor until Mario Chalmers' 3-pointer at 7:26. By then, it was too late as Marshall and the Bucks pulled away for the win and their biggest margin of victory this season.

Larry Sanders' tip in as time expired in the third gave the Bucks an 80-71 lead. After three ties and six lead changes in the quarter, Milwaukee closed it out with a 13-7 run. Bayless scored nine points during the run on a 3-pointer and six free throws.

TIP-INS

The Heat: Wade has scored at least 20 points for eight consecutive games, his longest such streak since going 13 straight from Feb. 23 to March 17 in 2013. . Forward Josh McRoberts made his second consecutive start this season while Norris Cole missed his second straight. . The Heat assigned Andre Dawkins to the Sioux Falls Skyforce on Dec. 3, but he was on the bench.

The Bucks: Parker scored 12 points going 6 of 9 from the field in the first half. . Through the third quarter, the Bucks had 22 fast-break points to the Heat's four. . Thinking he might be without all his big men, coach Jason Kidd said, "We'll play all the point guards, if we have to. We'll play all the Smurfs."
