Miami got the better of New York at home 119-98 in late March where they shot 55% from the field. Now they are going to try to make it three straight victories against New York. The Heat have opened up as nine point favorites, while the line has remained stagnant.
This Miami squad has been playing some solid basketball to close out the season where we have seen them win seven of their last 10 contests, but just 5-4-1 ATS. Their most recent outing resulted in a 115-86 victory over the Atlanta Hawks.
It has been an all-in effort for Miami as they have nine players averaging 10 PPG! They have been led by Goran Dragic and Hassan Whiteside. Dragic is averaging 17.5 PPG and 4.8 APG and Whiteside is averaging 14.0 PPG and 11.6 RPG.
On the road, their offense doesn’t bring too much bang as they rank 23rd in PPG, 17th in FG% and 14th in 3PT%. Then on the defensive side Miami is as solid as they come ranking 3rd in PPG, 6th in FG%, 7th in 3PT% and 17th in RPG.
In their last five contests they are shooting 45.4% from the field, which is right around their season average of 45.6%. Meanwhile, the defense has been holding opponents to only 93 PPG during that span.
New York Knicks
Not much has been going on for New York as they have lost seven of their last 10 contests including four straight, but they have gone a solid 6-4 ATS. Their most recent outing resulted in an embarrassing 73-97 loss to Orlando.
It was a sickening display for the home crowd where they witnessed their team shoot 35% from the field, while only making four of 27 three-pointers. The Michigan duo of Tim Hardaway Jr. and Trey Burke led the team in scoring putting in 16 and 15 points respectively.
Their shooting has been dreadful recently only converting 43.6% of their shots, which is off from their season average mark of 46.2%.The defense has also been lacking as they’ve given up 112.8 PPG in that span.
New York’s offense at home has been middle-of-the-pack this year ranking 17th in PPG, 13th in FG% and 15th in 3PT%. While on the defensive side they haven’t been terrible ranking 14th in PPG, 2nd in FG%, 13th in 3PT% and 20th in RPG.
