New York couldn’t power by the Heat this past Saturday losing 106-91.
The Heat’s Lebron James and Dwayne Wade led the team with 30 points and 22 points.
Carmelo Anthony as usual led the team in points with 26, but posted his season worst seven turnovers in the process.
This was the second game in a row that the Knicks best perimeter defender Iman Shumpert didn’t play due to a sprained right shoulder.
It was 77-71after three quarters in favor of the Heat, but the Knicks need Shumpert’s defense badly in the fourth as the Heat scored 29.
The Heat’s Norris Cole and James hit big after big shot whenever the Knicks got close.
The Knicks are now 19-28 and will head to Milwaukee to face the Bucks Monday, then host the Trail Blazers Wednesday.
