Even though the Heat were 3-8 in their last 11 road games, the Knicks defense could not contain Dwayne Wade or LeBron James, as they lost 93-85 to the Heat. Wade and James combined for 57 of the Heat’s 93 points.
Well that was easy.
Tonight, the Hawks came into Madison Square Garden with less energy than a middle aged man at a Justin Bieber concert. The Knicks dominated from the tip off and cruised to a 99-82 victory. The ball moved well all night and multiple Knicks contributed to the scoring. Jeremy Lin and Steve Novak led all scoring with 17 points each. Landry Fields, 16, Carmelo Anthony, 15, and JR Smith, 12, also scored in double digits for the Knicks. With the game out of reach late in the 3rd quarter, the Knicks’ key players got plenty of rest before tomorrow night’s showdown in Miami.
The New York Knicks are for real.
After a stunning come from behind win against the Eastern Conference elite Miami Heat you can’t help but think the Knicks won’t continue to play as they did tonight.
Tonight the New York Knicks will face off against the Miami Heat.
This is the first game that the Knicks have Carmelo Anthony against the superstar trio in Miami.
Anthony gives the Knicks another lights-out scorer, but will he and Amar’e Stoudemire be enough to overcome Miami’s LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh?
