Abbreviated write-up

2012 NBA EASTERN CONFERENCE PLAYOFFS

Thu May 3, 2012 | 7:10 PM, EDT | TNT
Madison Square Garden | New York, New York

Game 2
2 MIAMI HEAT
7 NEW YORK KNICKS

(Miami Heat Leads Series, 2-0)

Despite finally getting back to the Garden
(Where NY was 21-11)
New York’s list of issues remains burdensome
When we add in some less-publicized predicaments,
The Knicks task is damn near colossal

OBVIOUS:
* Amar’e Stoudamire’s reckless, self-inflicted absentee status for Game 3
* Jeremy Lin’s continued absence
* Baron Davis’ ailing condition
* Miami #30 Ranked Bench production surge

LESS-OBVIOUS:
Perhaps the most under-reported yet profoundly detrimental to Knicks
* NYK Shumpert’s Season-Ending Injury

THUS,
* NY Landry Fields’ in Shumpert’s Starting Spot
* Insufficient Offensive production spot (1-5 FG in 18 Min)

More importantly,
* NYK L Fields lack of lateral quickness Defensively

The result of New York’s already weak depth
Has been to infuse Miami's #1 Ranked Starting 5
w/an abundance of optimal open-court opportunities

Thus, opening up the floodgates; letting Greyhounds off the leash
(Miami's L James & D Wade)
Open Meadows to run, float & thrive

Moreover,
We MUST be perplexed at the Media open question:
‘Why was Amar’e so Pissed?’

REALLY?

Just maybe…Amar’e & New York was beside themselves….
Since they gave a TOP-SHELF effort,
& still didn’t have a reasonable shot at this one

CONSIDERING:
* New York had +7 Rebounds
* New York had more Second Chance Points
* New York got to the Rim +12 more times than Game 1
* New York shot 50% in “Jumpers
* New York shot 72.7% at the Rim
* Including NY +1 in GAME DUNKS
  (Even though all we see is Heat Dunk highlights)

Even w/all this, & NY having Defensive Player of the year in paint
New York’s All-Star Frontcourt
Couldn’t help NY’s inept BACKCOURT
From allowing Miami’s 1/2/3’sFrom getting into Paint for +12 More Pts
(Miami: 50 Pts in Paint | NY 38 Pts in Paint)

Miami is on cruise
New York is just utterly outmanned & outgunned 

2 UNIT
MIAMI -5 (Sportsbook)
NEW YORK

All the best, guys.

(Season-Low)

Good luck beav,I,m still on the fence.90% of the bets on Miami yet line dropped a half point to 5,bosh might not play and heat 1&5 ats last 6 rd. games. Letdown spot for heat here,they won gm.2,104 to 94 by outscoring knicks by three points the first 3 quarters,by one in the 4th qtr.Knick s 20&6 ats last 26 hm.games.I think heat will get their best game tonight from the knicks,will they still win by 6 or more in new york?The under is 7-1-1 in the last 9 games in new york between both teams,not a high total posted though,186,something like that,more pause

I said knicks first half,hahaha.nice call Steve. You were right,knicks gave it best shot game 2,similar to the Jazz who played well game one and still lost by 15.I,m still 4 games over 500,5 if I get the under in the second game,not good enough for me,gotta get better, nice card tomorrow.Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
