Ray Allen, driving on Samuel Dalembert, surpasses Reggie Miller for career playoff 3s.

MILWAUKEE — Ray Allen scored 23 and broke the NBA career playoff record for 3-pointers, and the Heat beat the Bucks 104-91 Thursday night for a 3-0 lead in their first-round series.

No team has overcome a 3-0 deficit to win a series.

Allen's five 3-pointers gave him 322 for his career, two more than Reggie Miller. Kobe Bryant is third with 292.

"I think about when I first stepped on this floor for the very first time, I thought about what I was going to be able to contribute to this game," said Allen, who spent his first six-plus seasons in Milwaukee. "It's ironic that I'm on this floor right now, because this is where it all started."

LeBron James added 22 points for the Heat, and Chris Bosh had 16 points and 14 rebounds. Dwyane Wade had four points and 11 assists, shooting a career-playoff-worst 1-for-12.

"I shot the ball terrible," Wade, who has a bruised right knee, said with a laugh. "But we played a good game. I'm not where I want to be. Not even close. I'm still able to push through certain things."

Larry Sanders and Brandon Jennings led the Bucks with 16 points each. After making five 3-pointers in the first quarter, the Bucks totaled two more.

"I hope we're still confident," Jennings said. "I know my head is still high. I'm still going to finish out.''

Bulls grind out win

CHICAGO — Carlos Boozer had 22 points and 16 rebounds, Luol Deng added 21 points and 10 rebounds, and the Bulls held off the Nets 79-76 to take a 2-1 series lead.

Chicago had no field goals and two free throws in the final 5:46. Brooklyn shot 35 percent for the second straight game. Brook Lopez had 22 points and nine rebounds, and Deron Williams scored 18 on 5-for-14 shooting.

Brooklyn got within 77-74 with 14.4 seconds left. But Nate Robinson and Joakim Noah each hit a free throw and former Bulls guard C.J. Watson missed a 3 at the buzzer.

Grizzlies within 2-1

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Zach Randolph had 27 points and 11 rebounds, and the Grizzlies beat the Clippers 94-82 to pull to 2-1.

Memphis snapped the Clippers' nine-game winning streak by outrebounding and dominating on second-chance points, things Los Angeles did so well in the first two games.

Injury updates: Warriors point guard Stephen Curry (sprained left ankle) is unsure if he can play tonight against the Nuggets. Curry said he'll consider a pain-numbing injection, which he has never done during the regular season for his twice surgically repaired right ankle. He asked fans for their favorite ankle puns (Twist and Shout was one, another was a soap opera As the Ankle Turns), but Curry picked his own pun as his favorite: "No ankle left unturned." … Steve Blake (strained right hamstring) is out tonight against the Spurs and fellow Laker guards Steve Nash (back, hamstrings) and Jodie Meeks (sprained left ankle) are doubtful. Nash got three injections Thursday. The only healthy guards for Los Angeles: Darius Morris, Andrew Goudelock and Chris Duhon. … Rockets point guard Jeremy Lin is day to day with a bruised right chest muscle.

Around the league: Celtics coach Doc Rivers was fined $25,000 for publicly criticizing game officials after a loss to Knicks on Tuesday. Rivers called two early fouls on Kevin Garnett "horrendous." … NBA deputy commissioner Adam Silver called injured Laker Kobe Bryant's live tweets during the Lakers' playoff opener "fascinating." Unable to sit on the bench, Bryant offered pointed analysis; he didn't tweet during Game 2. Players are prohibited from posting on social media during games, but Silver doesn't believe that should cover injured players not on the bench. … The founder of an investment firm that handled the National Basketball Players Association's investments and finances was charged with fraud. Federal prosecutors in New York unveiled a three-count complaint against Ohio-based Prim Capital Corporation founder Joseph Lombardo, 72. … Nets GM Billy King reportedly is close to completing a multiyear extension.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Chaim Bloom said the Rays weren't necessarily in the market for a shortstop. The team has a number of those. But when the Marlins recently began shopping Adeiny Hechavarria, well, that was too much to pass up.
