We skippin' the Atlanta game?
That one is pretty important for climbing the ranking ladder...
Melo better do work tonight.
Im done expecting STAT to do anything anymore.
Lin needs to do his job and dish the ball to EVERYONE
im tired of seeing JR WIDE OPEN and he passes to Fields only for a failed layup
Also: Knicks could win this game. Knicks are going to come out hungry I feel. Heat are bad at defending the 3-game, I expect to see some big shots from Novak and Jr Smith. Carmelo's gonna burst out this game I feel and let's watch Jeremy Lin in action. Gonna be an exciting game without question.

bump...why isnt anyone conversing about the epic game tmorrow
time to eat the Heat and end their winning streak... Knicks gotta bring it all play until they drop on the floor... thats it
I have to say, though, that not having Shumpert available is a huge disadvantage for us. Crazy as it is to say, missing our rookie might be the difference in this game. We can put Melo on Lebron because the former always elevates his game for the latter. But who's going to lock down Wade? As much as I love Fields we've all seen him being abused when playing defense against premier scorers. Maybe JR will bring the energy he's shown over the last several games and fill in. But damn if I won't miss Shump.
I agree...we got Shump precisely to guard premier perimeter players who can get to the rim...
It's OK though. Better that he gets healthy for the all-star break. Really, he doesn't even have to play in the Cavs game, probably.
I can't wait for this game. The Heat have won their last 7 games by 10 points or more. Knicks aren't half bad at all winning the last 9 of 11 games. Something has to give at this point.
MIA vs NYK part 2
Let's get this mother effin win!!
Hey Crazy, can you add a "0" option to your poll so I can gets me some green? Cheers bro
This team seems to do better against better teams and get lazy against weak teams. I would not be surprised to see a win tonight.
One thing I can guarantee: there will be many alley-oops on both sides of the court which should be exciting. (Jr Smith's alley-oop finishes last night were unreal...)
I think offense and rebounding are the keys to this game as we just don't have the capabilities to defend Wade and Lebron. If we can recover the rebounds and hit out shots though we can win this. On that note, I think Lin and Novak are the key offensive players this game. If Lin can distribute well and get easy dunks for everyone (I'm assuming our players are capable enough to finish), while Novak can hit from the perimeter, we have a real chance. Especially if Tyson can somewhat stop the easy alley-oops that Wade/Lebron have been perfecting this season.
Jefferies may actually be a key to this game. I can see him taking a few offensive fouls this game.
I really don't see what Amar'e can contribute. He's weaker defensively than Jefferies and he has been off on his jump shot. He's basically there to just dunk the ball from Lin assists. If Jefferies didn't miss so many layups he would be great to play on this team. I think it's a really tough call who you want on the court this game: Stat or Jeff.
In summary, this will be an interesting game.
