It’s not too often you see a play like the Heat pulled off last night. Ray Allen makes a steal, lobs it down court to Dwyane Wade, who jumps to catch it and lobs it over to LeBron James to finish it off. Pretty slick play. Unfortunately for Miami, they got beat by 20 at home by the supposedly old and creaky New York Knicks, who also knocked down a stunning 18 three pointers. And New York did it without Carmelo Anthony.
It’s the second time this season that the Knicks have beaten the Heat by 20 points. They’re doing it with size, depth and veteran leadership. I’m not saying the Heat should be worried, but the Heat should be a little concerned. Not everyone is built like the Knicks with their length and low post presence and rotation, but if New York ends up in the Eastern Conference Finals with Miami, then the Heat might start sweating it a little bit. LeBron missed a triple double by one assist, but it’s unlikely something like that matters to Miami right now.
