New York vs. Miami
The New York Knicks and the Miami Heat have both been playing incredible basketball as of late. The Knicks have won eight straight behind the stellar play of Carmelo Anthony and JR Smith while the Heat have only lost one game since February 2nd. Tonight's match up between these streaking teams has no playoff implications for Miami, but the Knicks trail the Indiana Pacers by a 1/2 game for the #2 seed in the Eastern conference. Although home court in the playoffs doesn't guarantee a series win it is a nice advantage to have a potential game 7 in your building. Look for New York to come out playing inspired ball trying to send a message to the champs, but they will come up a bit short. LeBron, D Wade, and Mario Chalmers are rested and New York doesn't have enough presence inside to take advantage of the Heat inside. Miami will win by a handful.
