MIAMI – The Milwaukee Bucks couldn’t stop a good homecoming story. Dwyane Wade made a triumphant return to the Miami Heat after a 21-month absence, helping his original franchise to a 91-85 win over the Bucks on Friday night at AmericanAirlines Arena. Milwaukee, led by all-star forward Giannis Antetokounmpo’s 23 points and 11 rebounds, had its three-game win streak snapped. Bucks guard Eric Bledsoe added 19 points. However, Antetokounmpo was held to 8-of-20 shooting. He shot just 3-of-14 through three quarters, when the Heat built an 18-point lead.
