Milwaukee, WI (NNCNOW.com) --- For the first time in Miami's Big Three era, they swept a playoff series. Lebron James scored 30 points, and Ray Allen added 16 points to beat Milwaukee, 88-77 to advance to the Eastern Conference semifinals.

Monta Ellis led the Bucks with 21 points, and Larry Sanders had 11 rebounds, but Brandon Jennings struggled, finishing with three points and two turnovers.

Milwaukee had seven of their 16 turnovers in the first quarter and couldn't take advantage of the absence of Dwayne Wade, who sat out with a bruised knee.

All four game were won by double digits. The Heat will face the winner of the Brooklyn Nets-Chicago Bulls series next. That begins next Saturday.
