MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Ray Allen scored 23 points and broke the NBA career playoff record for 3-pointers, and the Miami Heat used another of their patented runs to beat the Milwaukee Bucks 104-91 on Thursday night for a 3-0 lead in their first-round series.

The Heat can complete the sweep in Game 4 on Sunday at the Bradley Center. No team has ever overcome a 3-0 deficit to win a series in the NBA playoffs.

Allen's five 3-pointers against the Bucks gave him 322 for his career, two more than Reggie Miller. LeBron James added 22 points for the Heat, and Chris Bosh had 16 points and 14 rebounds. Dwyane Wade scored only four points, but had 11 assists.

Larry Sanders and Brandon Jennings led the Bucks with 16 points each.
