Knicks vs Heat Free Pick May 9, 2012

May 08, 2012

The Miami Heat is back at home and will try for a second time to finish off the New York Knicks. Miami Heat leads the best of seven series against New York by a 3-1 margin. New York pulled out a tough win on Sunday night against Miami 89-87 to move the series back to Miami for at least one more game.

In the first three games, the Heat completely dominated the Knicks on both ends of the court. LeBron James and Dwayne Wade scored nearly at will and the defense was able to hold Knick star Carmelo Anthony to below his season scoring average. In game four however, the Knicks were able to hold both James and Wade in check to play for another game.

New York has been devastated by injury as they have lost Iman Shumpert and Baron Davis to torn ACLs and Amare Stoudemire injured his hand in a freak act of aggression after the team’s loss in game two.

Anthony has had to step up his game, play positions that are not normally his and run the team on the court. For the most part, Anthony has done everything coach Mike Woodson has asked of him.

In Wednesday’s matchup, the Heat will bring the same offense and defense against the Knicks. James will look to penetrate when he can, while Wade will take his defender down low and post him on offensive. The Knicks will look to slow the tempo of the game down, while working the shot clock so Miami has fewer chances to score.

The current line has the Miami Heat favored by 11 points after opening with them favored by 12 ½ points. The total is at 183 for the game and 92 ½ for the first half. The Heat would like to end the series tonight to get a day or two additional rest before their semifinal matchup. Take the Heat in this less the points and the total to end UNDER.
