Two weeks ago, it appeared Miami had settled into the Eastern Conference’s playoff picture.
Six straight losses later, it’s still in the playoffs but only by a game over Indiana.
Of course, Miami sits just behind a group of four teams, including the Knicks, separated by just two games.
Victor Oladipo is there but he isn’t yet ready to play. He’ll miss this game with an illness, per the Injury Report.
Until he’s ready, Trevor Ariza will continue playing big minutes. He’s played 64 in his last two after making his season debut ten days ago.
New York Knicks
Julius Randle missed his first game of the season on Saturday with a thigh bruise but his teammates picked up the slack in a 102–96 win over the Bucks.
Alec Burks and RJ Barrett scored 21 apiece. Derrick Rose, who played for the first time all month after Covid, and Immanuel Quickley had 13 off the bench.
Mitchell Robinson broke his foot, four games after returning from over a month-long absence.
The Knicks have listed Randle and Reggie Bullock, who has missed the last two games with a sprained ankle, as questionable.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Heat are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games playing on 2 days rest.
- Heat are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games vs. a team with a winning home record.
- Knicks are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 when their opponent allows 100 points or more in their previous game.
- Knicks are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game.
- Head to Head: Heat are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
Free Miami Heat vs. New York Knicks NBA Prediction: the Knicks stay gritty.
The Knicks can’t afford to miss Randle for another one but assuming he does suit it back up, they will stay competitive.
Long-term, missing Robinson is discouraging. Short-term, Nerlens Noel will play the next-man-up role and everyone else will pitch in to help him out. That’s who the Knicks are this year.
Miami should play better. It’s still on the road but it had the weekend off. No excuses for Jimmy Butler’s team.
I suspect the Heat will win but I’m certainly not eager to lay four points.
Again, that’s assuming Randle plays. Be ready to hammer Miami if he can’t.
