Jimmy Butler didn’t even make the trip to Toronto because he was having trouble moving his head. And, his absence was notable as the Heat never truly got on track. Miami looked miniature and less athletic in comparison to the lengthy Raptors who morphed them.
Evidence of the latter was the 62 points Miami allowed in the paint (compared to 36), 15 offensive rebounds, 23 fast beak points (10 for Heat), and 16 turnovers Toronto forced leading to 20 points.
Offensively, the Heat scores 109.1 points per game ranking 30th while shooting 45.7% from the field and 34.1% from the perimeter ranking 26th and 27th respectively.
Defensively, the Heat allows opponents to score 109.9 points per game ranking second overall. Miami opponents shoot 48.1% from the field and 37.1% from the perimeter ranking 21st and 2nd respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Jimmy Butler SG (questionable—neck)
- Nikola Jovic SF (questionable— back)
New York Knicks
The basketball gods delivered a gift for the Knicks getting to play the Rockets after three consecutive losses including just a week ago to the Heat.
If Butler is out again it’ll be another timely gift coming their way since he changes the dynamics for the Heat on both sides of the hardwood.
That said Tom Thibodeau may have his own injury woes to deal with if all the ‘questionable’ noted players can’t go as it’ll particularly impact the Knicks’ playmaking with so many point guards nursing injury.
As can be seen, the Knicks are one of the best defensive teams in the association they limit opponents to 112.8 points which is 14-ranked overall while possessing the third-best opponent field goal percentage of 45.9% and ranks ninth for opponent perimeter percentage of 35.1%.
So far, offensively, the Knicks score 115.6 points per game ranking 13th while shooting 46.8% from the field and 35% from the perimeter ranking 22nd in both efficiency categories.
To summarize the injury report…
- Derrick Rose, PG (questionable—illness)
- Jalen Brunson, PG (questionable—hand)
- DaQuan Jeffries, PG (downgraded to OUT—calf)
- Duane Washington Jr., PG (OUT—hip)
- Trevor Keels, SF (upgraded to probable—foot)

Free Miami Heat vs. New York Knicks NBA Prediction:
If Butler can’t go the Knicks have the decided edge, albeit the Heat always play them tough. Their lack of size was a major weakness in Toronto and you can’t teach size so the only way they’ll be able to counter is with energy and effort.
If Brunson (and the other three guards) are all out, playmaking will be problematic for Thibs, and no doubt Spoelstra will be sending his guys in whacking at the ball to create turnovers.
Take the Knicks to win with the caveat to switch and take the points if Butler arrives in the Mecca to lift his squad.
