    Announcement Pre GT Banter - Knicks @ Heat - Thu, Dec 6 8:00pm



    Anthony’s status is a major concern for a Knicks team in search of their second victory over Miami this season. New York relies on Anthony’s ability to shoot from the 3-point line, break down the opposition off the dribble, and work in the post while playing the power forward position.

    James and Anthony will not necessarily defend each other on every possession but for a majority of the game, the two friends will be highlighted one-on-one. Miami’s MVP, Finals MVP, and Sportsman of the Year is an absolute beast in the open floor. James will attack in transition and in the halfcourt with a strong first step. Anthony and the Knicks interior defense must keep James out of the paint and off the free throw line.

    If New York can turn James into a jump shooter for a majority of the contest, the team will have a chance at limiting his impact and force Dwyane Wade and the other scorers to make plays on the offensive side of the floor.

    Melo said hes GOING TO PLAY..

    Im a bit worried about how the injury might effect his play even tho its his non shooting hand. But yeah if we manage to win this game too on national tv AGAIN.. we will get the most respect we've ever gotten from the media..

    Game Thread Thu, Dec 6: New York Knicks @ Miami Heat - Knicks dig deep and win!



    Game Story
    Knicks-Heat Preview

    By JEFF BARTL
    Posted Dec 06 2012 12:51AM
    Carmelo Anthony has been on a tear of late, but he wasn't on the court for the end of the New York Knicks' thrilling victory their last time out.
    He may not be around for Thursday night's highly anticipated rematch with the Miami Heat, either.
    A finger injury could keep Anthony from helping New York try to avoid its sixth straight defeat in Miami, while the Heat figure to be motivated after a stunning loss in the nation's capital.
    Anthony entered Wednesday's game in Charlotte averaging 30.7 points over his previous six. He had 23 when he dove into the team's bench after a loose ball and suffered a deep cut to his left middle finger with 2:10 remaining.
    That left the Knicks needing another option down the stretch. Enter J.R. Smith, who intercepted a pass with less than 20 seconds left, then hit a jumper as the buzzer sounded - the final two of his 13 points - to give the Knicks a 100-98 victory.
    Tyson Chandler added 18 points and 17 rebounds.
    "The huddle was very calm. They were like, 'Hey, we can win this,'" coach Mike Woodson said. "We missed a lot of good shots tonight, shots that we normally make, but J.R. hung in there and made the shot when it counted."
    New York (13-4) has won five straight and has the best record in the Eastern Conference.
    "I was hurt, but J.R. made it feel better," Anthony said.
    How good it will feel Thursday remains to be seen. Anthony received five stitches for the laceration, though the injury is on his non-shooting hand.
    "Right now it's numb, so I don't know," Anthony, averaging 28.4 points in his last 13 regular-season matchups with Miami, said of his chances to play against the Heat.
    Anthony scored 30 points in New York's 104-84 home win over Miami on Nov. 2, but the Knicks have lost nine of the last 10 road meetings with the Heat - including the postseason.
    Miami, though, is coming off a 105-100 loss at Washington - which had only one victory entering the contest - that snapped a season-best six-game winning streak.
    "We understand that every team we play is going to play their best. They're going to make shots they don't make against other teams," LeBron James said after recording his 33rd career regular-season triple-double (26 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists). "We understand teams are going to play better when they play against us. They're up for it and we have to be for teams as well."
    James insisted the defeat is no more or less important than any other.
    "Nah, man, there's no lesson. This ain't a lesson for us. We just lost," James said. "We've seen and been through everything, so we don't need a loss to be like, `Oh, let's catch ourselves.' It happens."
    Chris Bosh scored 20 points and added 12 rebounds, while Dwyane Wade finished with 24 points.
    "You move on," Wade said. "You learn from it, but you don't become a good team by holding onto certain losses - or certain wins."
    James has averaged 30.6 points in his last 18 regular-season games against the Knicks, while Wade has averaged 30.3 in his last 13 in the series.
    New York may heavily rely on Smith if Anthony can't go, but shooting against the Heat has been a struggle for Smith. He's hit just 33.6 percent from the field versus Miami in eight meetings since the start of last season.

    Projected Starters


    at Forward "Mr. I need more help to win titles" LeBron James
    at Forward "I was ass, got good, got paid then was ass again" Rashard Lewis
    at Center "The last living dinosaur" Chris Bosh
    at Guard "Mr. I'm a top 10 Point Guard" Mario Chalmers
    at Guard "Mr. didn't win **** between Shaq and LeBron" Dwyane Wade
    Your Coach for the Cryami Cheat Erik "With a K" Spoelstra


    at Guard from North Carolina Raymond Felton
    at Guard from Arkansas Ronnie Brewer
    at Center from Dominguez High School Tyson Chandler
    at Forward from TCU Kurt Thomas
    at Forward from Syracuse Carmelo Anthony
    Your Coach of THE New York Knicks Mike Woodson
    6 Keys to Victory
    1. No second chance points/rebounding
    2. Ball movement and player movement
    3.Defend the 3 pointer
    4. Make LeBron and Wade contested jump shooters
    5. Maintain composure(Felton/Carmelo/JR/Tyson)
    6. Transition Defense
    Match-Up To Watch

    Nothing else really matters. Which superstar will lead their team to victory. Can Carmelo handle the Miami defensive pressure. Can LeBron handle the New York defensive pressure

    Im amped for the game....one other key for the game is transition defense.

    Can't let Bron and Wade get the fastbreak going...unstoppable in the open court.

    @ShandelRich

    Norris Cole says he's really pushing to play tonight so the Heat avoid having to play without a point guard.
    Shandel Richardson is one of the Sun Sentinel Heat writers. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


    Some more info: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    With four players nursing injuries, coach Erik Spoelstra said he will decide before tip-off if guards Norris Cole and Mario Chalmers and forwards Shane Battier and Udonis Haslem will play. Chalmers (finger) and Haslem (hip pointer) sustained injuries in Thursday's loss to the Wizards. Spoelstra confirmed Chalmers tore a ligament in the finger while trying to catch a pass.

    Battier has been out the past three games since sustaining a sprained knee against the Cleveland Cavaliers Nov. 24. All the players completed the morning shootaround except for Haslem, who only practiced about minutes.

    anyway we cant play vs heat like vs bobcats. I understand that they have to use as less energy as possible but this game was really ugly .heat are playing many fast breaks like spurs only positive is Chalmers wont be available but they still got Killer Allen and Lewis.
    Kurt Thomas in starting 5 is wrong idea for Mike
