(10 am PT) today. The Knicks are currently tied with Philadelphia for the seventh and eighth spots in the Eastern Conference (NY owns tiebreaker). Defense seems to be the main reason behind New York's late season surge (13-4 SU/ATS run). On Friday the Knicks held Washington to 65 points. Only four teams during that 17-game stretch topped 100 points. The Miami-New York series has trended heavily towards the under at 0-5-1 the last six including this year's two meeting that went under by 14.5 and 8.5 points.
“We know they’re good,” Heat forward Chris Bosh said. “We know what they’re capable of. Any series, even last year, the two-seven matchup we had with Philly, it was a tough series. They were a tough team. You have to approach this the same way. They’re on a roll. That said, the importance of Sunday’s game is increased because it’s a potential playoff matchup. We don’t want them to have any confidence [against] us.”
