Miami looks for their 9th consecutive win over New York when they take on the Knicks at home on Wednesday.
Miami has absolutely dominated the Knicks this season as they’ve gone 2-0 with wins coming by an average of 18 points per game.
In both wins, they held New York to just 78 points as the Knicks offense just couldn’t figure out the stingy Miami defense.
The Knicks have already matched last seasons win total as they have won back-to-back games to push their wins to 17 on the season.
The back-to-back wins came against the Hawks in a home and home. New York handled the Hawks in the 2nd leg 107-101 as Carmelo Anthony had some strong words following the win. He told reporters this season would be different and not to remember last season’s Knicks.
SG Arron Afflalo played well in both wins as he averaged 30.5 points per game in the back-to-back wins. Afflalo had a season high 38 points on 14 of 17 shooting in Sunday’s win.
C Kristaps Porzingis continues to experience a rookie roller coaster season. He’s recorded three double doubles over the past 7 games and had 17 points and 11 rebounds in Tuesday’s win over Atlanta.
The Heat have used the formula that has worked all season long, solid defense.
They showed that in both wins over the Knicks this season as they’ve held them to just 78 points in both meetings. Overall this season the Heat are allowing just 94.6 points per game.
PF Chris Bosh continues to play at a top tier level as he has stepped up tremendously. Bosh recorded 31 points and 11 rebounds in the win over Indiana last time out. Bosh has recorded 8 double doubles over his last 9 games.
Bosh and his partner in crime, Dwayne Wade, have both flourished. Wade put in 27 points against Indiana as well. When both players play like they did against the Pacers, this team is simply hard to beat.
