Free New York Knicks vs. Miami Heat NBA Prediction:
Both clubs love to play gritty, aggressive defense so if they both bring their ‘A’ game expect a playoff style level of defense. If Butler can’t go that vaults the Knicks shot at covering but even with him given how New York is vibing it’ll be hard to stop that momentum train.
