Game 22 MIAMI HEAT7 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 burdensomeWhen 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 depthHas 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?’
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 paintNew York’s All-Star FrontcourtCouldn’t help NY’s inept BACKCOURTFrom 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 cruiseNew York is just utterly outmanned & outgunned

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
Thanks, guys....getting it goin' (appologize for lack of feedback.. yet had an amazin' day... have to say)
nice win steve!!! well deserved.

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
