Miami Heat vs. New York Knicks
Game time: 11:00 a.m. AEDT
Expectedly, the Heat are great on both ends of the floor. They score 104.9 points per game (5th in the NBA) and hold down opponents to just 97.9 PPG (7th). That’s bad news for the Knicks which can only muster 94.9 points per outing this season—or 6th worst overall in the entire league.

However, it appears that the Knicks have turned the corner after an atrocious start this season. They've won three of their last four games including big road wins over the San Antonio Spurs, 105-101 and the Dallas Mavericks, 92-80.
They can continue their good run with another win versus Miami, which they have beaten in three of the last four meetings. They are also 3-1 against the spread versus the Heat in this stretch.
The Knicks are coming off a close 89-to-85 win over the Detroit Pistons led by Carmelo Anthony's 34 points. Andrea Bargnani contributed 13 points and 11 rebounds while Raymond Felton had 12 points and 6 assists.
Miami have won five of their last six games cruising in the last three.
Anthony exploded in the last meeting between these two squads scoring 50 points and hauling down 15 rebounds in a 102-to-90 win on April 2 last season. James did not suit up in that game.
