Knicks vs Heat Free Pick April 30, 2012

The Eastern Conference quarterfinal series between the New York Knicks and Miami Heat continues on April 30 with the second game. The Heat leads the series 1-0 after routing the Knicks 100-67 Saturday afternoon. The Heat controlled the game from the start and their defense was able to shut down Carmelo Anthony. LeBron James dominated the game for the Heat as he scored 32 points, while Anthony suffered through 3 for 15 shooting. Dwayne Wade scored 19 for the Heat even though he played with a dislocated finger.

The Heat played very physical in the game and held the Knicks to a franchise playoff low 67 points. The Knicks also were taken out of their game as they had 21 fouls called against them in just the first half of play. They will have to play much tighter defense but not get into foul trouble. The Knicks also need to control their tempers as Tyson Chandler was called for a flagrant foul and got the Miami fans even more into the game than they already were.

The Knicks need the continued fine play of J.R. Smith but lost Iman Shumpert for the season with a torn ACL. Veteran guard Baron Davis needs to step it up a notch both offensively and defensively. Amare Stoudemire, the Knicks star forward told his team the series is not over as it was just the first game.

The Knicks will have to find an answer to the strong defense the Heat showed and will have to find a way to control James on the offensive end. Miami will look to put the Knicks in a big 2-0 hole by taking the second game at home.

The line opened with the Heat as 7 ½-point favorites but has increased to 8 points. The total is at 186 ½. The Heat is just too strong for the Knicks, who now will not have Shumpert, who has started the last 17 games for the team. Take the Heat less the points to cash out in this matchup, with the total ending UNDER.
