New York Knicks 96, Miami Heat 110 (Final)

What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Tweeting this in case a certain player sees it.
The Grizzlies will take on the Knicks on ESPN next week in MSG. The Knicks, you know, the team ESPN took them off National TV for this week. 😅
Would be quite the response to see someone put on a show at The Garden 😁 – 12:16 AM

Ja Morant on the Grizzlies-Spurs game being removed off ESPN in favor of the Knicks-Heat:
“Shout out to whoever took us off TV. Appreciate you for that. That game right there was for you too.” – 11:44 PM
Meghan Triplett @Meghan_Triplett
During his postgame press conference, Ja Morant said, “shoutout to whoever took us off TV….That game is for you too. I don’t know what went into that…”
The Grizzlies/Spurs game was taken off of the ESPN schedule broadcast last week and replaced with Knicks/Miami. – 11:44 PM
Drew Hill @DrewHill_DM
Ja Morant: “Shoutout to whoever took us off TV. That game right there was for you, too.”
ESPN flexed the Grizzlies game out of national TV for Heat-Knicks. Morant scored 41 points in a close win. – 11:42 PM

Takeaways and postgame reaction from the Heat’s double-digit win over the Knicks miamiherald.com/sports/nba/mia… Heat remains in first place in the East, why three-point shooting is an important part of the Heat’s formula and other stuff – 11:40 PM
Ralph Lawler @Ohmeomy
Clipper win at Orlando tonight gives them a 3-2 record 5-games through this 8 game road trip. I felt 4 and 4 would be a great 2-weeks of work. With Miami, Charlotte and Indiana ahead, they have a shot at that or more. Impressive! – 11:15 PM
Chris Fedor @ChrisFedor
This wasn’t the Nets without KD. It wasn’t the Heat without Butler and Bam. It wasn’t the center-less Utah Jazz. It was the streaking Bucks who were 18-3 with Giannis, Holiday and Middleton in the lineup together. And it was still a #Cavs rout

Five Degrees of Heat from Wednesday night’s 110-96 victory over the Knicks: sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-h…
1. Butler offers a reminder to Thibodeau.
2. Robinson stays in a groove.
3. Herro steps back in, steps up.
4. Tucker sets a tone.
5. Adebayo with a passing fancy. – 10:44 PM

Clips trailed by 14 and beat Orlando. They’ve overcome deficits of 13+ points to win 5 times in January – tied for 3rd-most in a single calendar month over the last 25 seasons. Heat had 6 such wins in March 2006 and Celtics also had 6 in November 2017 per @ESPNStatsInfo9:30 PM
Barry Jackson @flasportsbuzz
Don’t know that you would have heard this with conviction in early October: Wade told me yesterday he won’t be surprised if Heat makes Finals, and Jeff Van Gundy makes clear tonight: “They’re a legitimate championship caliber team when whole. This is a really, really good team.” – 9:28 PM

Who do you give the ball to on this Heat team when needing a bucket late in the fourth?
I’m drawing up a play for a PJ Tucker corner three
He hasn’t let them down all season – 9:26 PM
Miami Heat @MiamiHEAT
A 20-5 run is pretty good if you ask us pic.twitter.com/LmmYj53yzY9:24 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Watching PJ Tucker constantly in the ear of the young guys, especially defensively, is so great to see
Adding in his production this season just skyrockets his value on this squad – 9:23 PM
Fred Katz @FredKatz
Thibs rolled with the starters for 6-plus minutes as the Heat went up 26 — Kemba Walker, Evan Fournier, RJ Barrett, Julius Randle, Mitchell Robinson. That lineup is minus-11.5 per 100 possessions on the season, but has played the third-most minutes of any lineup in the NBA. – 9:22 PM

Duncan Robinson now shooting 36.4 percent on threes this season. – 9:20 PM

Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds
Heat runs to start halves tonight: 13-2 in the first, 11-2 (and counting) here in the second.
That’s a 20-point differential over those spans, and probably not coincidentally, the Heaters have a 22-point lead at the moment. – 9:07 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Heat now shooting 61 percent from the field, 55 percent on threes and 90 percent from the foul line. – 9:07 PM
Miami Heat @MiamiHEAT
Need our umbrellas the way we started this half💦💦💦 – 9:07 PM
Marc Berman @NYPost_Berman
Randle airball, Miami 3. Randle loses ball off backboard. Miami 3. It’s 70-48 and Thibs needs to bench Jules with 9:24 left in third. – 9:07 PM
Steve Popper @StevePopper
After a Randle airball and then something I can’t describe – pass? Shot? Who knows? – the Heat have expanded the lead to 22. And it’s a Knicks timeout 2:36 into the third quarter. – 9:06 PM
Stefan Bondy @SBondyNYDN
That’s about as bad a sequence as you can get from Julius Randle. – 9:06 PM

B) Plus/minus from the Knicks starters each night – 8:53 PM
Steve Popper @StevePopper
Knicks down 13 at the half, which seems as good as they could hope for. Another night where Randle has more turnovers (3) than field goals (2). – 8:52 PM

Halftime. Heat lead the Knicks 59-46.
• Barrett 13 pts
• Randle 4-5-4
• Butler 15-2-3
• Herro 15 & 5
• Robinson 12 pts – 8:47 PM

The end of the first half of this Knicks-Heat game was utter absurdity.
Jeff Van Gundy summed it up well: “That was a lot of wasted time.” pic.twitter.com/pifiXMyTLc8:47 PM

Halftime: Heat 59, Knicks 46. Heat shooting 58.3 percent from the field and 9 of 17 on threes. Jimmy Butler and Tyler Herro each with 15 points. – 8:46 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Heat go up 20 in second period, take 59-46 lead into half over Knicks. Butler and Herro with 15 points apiece. Heat 9 of 17 on 3s. – 8:45 PM
Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds
Also, example No. 8,206 why boxscores hardly ever tell you the whole story: Max Strus is 0 for 5 so far, but his defense has been at a lockdown level. – 8:43 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Knicks have made nine threes, but somehow about to enter the half with fewer than 50 points. 14 paint points, 1-of-5 shooting from the foul line and nine turnovers will do that. – 8:41 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Tyler Herro has now scored at least 15 points in his last 11 appearances, with the Heat still in the second period. – 8:40 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Heat shooting 60 percent from the field and 9 of 16 on threes. Miami’s offense continues to play like one of the NBA’s best. – 8:40 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Elite defense being played with Tyler Herro and Max Strus leading the way on the perimeter
That back line just provides so many problems for the offense, and elevates weaker defenders at the front – 8:40 PM
Steve Popper @StevePopper
Heat just went on a 10-0 run to open up a 20-point lead. – 8:39 PM

This is just terrible offense from the Knicks. Tough to watch. – 8:39 PM

Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Couple things with Duncan Robinson:
1. Drop coverage means one guy has to be taken out for an open three off the DHO
2. He’s been so good shifting down with the ball on attacks like the one just seen, leading to open looks and easy kick-outs
3. Shots are simply falling – 8:37 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Duncan Robinson was asked Tuesday about 3-point contest. Said he didn’t feel he merited consideration. He now seems to be warming up to it. So far 4 of 6 on 3s. – 8:36 PM

Jimmy Butler has been strong around the rim tonight
Fighting through contact, got the call there, but finishing well
That’s important – 8:35 PM

Knicks shooting 40 percent on threes, but just 1 of 5 from the foul line and with seven turnovers. – 8:26 PM
Brady Hawk @BradyHawk305
Tyler Herro is absolutely feeling it
Liked his handle and offensive control so far to get these looks
He’s creating them himself – 8:24 PM
Steve Popper @StevePopper
Alec Burks is very skilled at getting foul calls. Max Strus did not enjoy that and got a tech and the foul. Burks got 2 shots after the tech. As Rasheed would say, Ball Don’t Lie – he misses two – 8:24 PM
Anthony Chiang @Anthony_Chiang
Tyler Herro already with 11 points in his first game back from protocols. – 8:24 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
The only player remaining on either team from the last time the Knicks won in Miami is Udonis Haslem. The Heat that night started Dragic, McGruder, Babbitt, Richardson, Whiteside. The Knicks started Baker, Vujacic, Porzingis, Hernangomez, Lee. – 8:22 PM

so nice of him to get out of the way so Tyler could have an open shot pic.twitter.com/SrYb6VnQlM8:21 PM

End of first quarter: Heat 30, Knicks 16. P.J. Tucker with 10 points, Bam Adebayo with 2 points, 3 rebounds and 5 assists. Heat shooting 54.5 percent from the field and with just one turnover. – 8:11 PM

It’s 30-16 Miami after the first quarter. Knicks shot okay – 42.9/44.4 — but 6 turnovers against Heat defense. – 8:11 PM

On the Knicks last possession first Julius Randle and then RJ Barrett tried to isolate Jimmy Butler one-on-one and that is a terrible idea. – 8:09 PM

As I said on the pregame show, this Knicks offense falls right into Miami’s defensive favor
When they begin to spam strong side Julius Randle, the Heat double and rely on rotations
Like they do at an extremely high level
This is their type of game – 7:52 PM

Heat opens with 13-2 run. Bam Adebayo has assisted on three of the Heat’s first five baskets. Knicks call timeout. – 7:51 PM

Fantastic defense on Kemba on one end
Three off the DHO on the other end

Erik Spoelstra on Heat sitting in first place in the East; “These six months of a regular season, you do want to have something that you’re playing for and competitors like taking on big challenges. … There will be a lot of movement the next few months. But our guys enjoy it.” – 6:13 PM

The useless double techs, the quick ejections that caught Jimmy Butler and Cade Cunningham last week stem from keeping order, i.e. preventing a Malice at the Palace. Time to let that go, NBA yhoo.it/3AvDKFc5:27 PM

The Wolves, currently 16th in offensive rating, are basically one more good offensive game away from being an above-average offense and a top-10 defense.
These are the only teams who currently meet those qualifications: Golden Stare, Phoenix, Milwaukee, Miami, Memphis – 3:51 PM

📅 On this day in 2007, the @New York Knicks Jamal Crawford scored 52 points in a 116-96 win over the Heat.
It was the second of four career 50-point games for Crawford, each with a different franchise.
No other player in NBA history has recorded a 50-point game with four franchises. pic.twitter.com/Fav6HuFeDy3:01 PM

Kemba Walker this morning tried to make sure he was not misquoted aspiring reporter, Mitchell Robinson who came over and listened to an answer by Walker about balance and shouted, “It’s a battle” Kemba corrects him, “that’s not what I said though, yo.” He left out “Relax, Mitch.” – 2:34 PM
