New York Knicks vs Miami Heat (By: Khum)
New York Knicks - Miami Heat
Here we have two teams with opposite purposes.
While the Knicks are in tanking mode, losing their last 8 games in a row and 22 of their last 25, the Heat is on the 7th spot in the East and keep on fighting for a playoff spot. They need to beat these bad teams in order to keep their chances in play.
Actually they really do that constantly: outside of their three losses to the Hawks this season, the Heat have been very good against the other bottom five teams in the NBA. They have not lost yet against the Suns, Bulls, and Cavs (6-0 SU & 5-1 ATS) and I doubt the Knicks are able to best them either.
Miami is 14-9 ATS for the season when playing on the road while the Knicks are 2-8 in their last 10 home games.
The reason the Heat is woning with relative ease these teams at the bottom of the ladder is their defense, the 3rd best in NBA when playing on the road and the 5th overall in points per posession allowed.
Let's go green!
