    Of course I want us to and believe we will win this game, however if we didn't it wouldn't be a big deal. As long as we put up a good showing I'll still be satisfied.

    Melo, Kidd, Felton, Amare and Iman all banged up to some degree, damn that 5 is better than half the league's starting 5.
    The plus is that if the Knicks win, the Charles Barkley's of the world would have nothing to say. But it just seems like the worst way to come into a game against one of the best teams in the NBA.

    Plus the Knicks really didn't play that well against the Bobcats, so I'm just hoping it's not a blowout at this point.

    I gotta admit, I am not too confident like I used to in the beginning of the season.

    But, and that's a big but, yesterday's game was so close and it showed us that we can win a game with a small differential (not the case with most of our wins this season, which were blowouts).

    This game is hard from all angles. However, a win tonight shall be our biggest of the season.

    Keys to victory: rebounding, penetrating and keeping the ball moving.

    ^ I think we proved yesterday the real key is transition defense.

    We couldn't do it against Kemba/Gordon/Henderson/Sessions... We will need to be extremely disciplined in this area to keep things close, Miami are one of the best fast break teams in the league.

    If we can stop the Heat in transition and move the ball well on offense the rest should take care of itself. Miami are even worse than us (barely) at rebounding and have no inside presence whatsoever, the usual rules do not apply in this game.

    Defend in transition, don't let any of their role players get hot. We got this.

    ^
    The keys i talked about were more about the offensive end. Because I truly believe that if we shoot the ball well early, we can manage to get the win against this Heat team, they thrive on their defense, and if we break it, we break them!

    Definitely not the best way to enter a game.
    Wait, what?

    We might have beat the Heat once in the beginning of the season but that doesn't prove that we're better team than them until we can beat them on a consistent basis. Look at how we played vs the bobcats.

    On a side note, does anyone have an insider subscription for this article? I really wanna read what this guy wants to say about Melo vs Lebron

    Well, I can see the reasoning behind this.

    We have several big games this month and they want him to recuperate fully, not play and aggravate things when he's not right.

    It's disappointing, but the Heat nearly lost to the Spurs minus all their stars, and did lose to the Wiz worst team in the league. So we still have a shot here.

    Definitely lost some respect for Melo. He can kiss his mvp chances goodbye as well
