The Knicks Bench Beat the Heats Starters, improve to 14-4

I’m starting this recap early and commenting as the game goes:

  • Kurt is making the most out of his obligatory 5 minute starting role.  4 boards.  Too bad we won’t see him again tonight.
  • Sheed is getting cheers in Miami.  I didn’t realize how loved he is, he gets cheered in every stadium.
  • A lot of 3′s, most of them good looks.
  • Took 9 minutes for the first shady call.  JR Smith fouled LeBrons shoulder with his face.
  • Another good defensive stand by JR, LeBron traveled…nope blocking foul on JR AND a tech.  How has there been no investigation into Ed Malloy and Joey Crawford?
  • 3.5 minutes into the 2nd and one basket by either team.  NY is playing Prigs, Sheed, Novak, Kidd and White so that’s understandable, Miami still has Bosh out there.
  • White and Prigioni coming up huge in the 2nd quarter.
  • If you want to score on the Knicks just do a back door cut.
  • Novak back to back buckets just when you get the feeling Miami might make a run.  LeBron 3 and Felton 3 in the final 30 seconds, AND if there was .1 of a second more on the clock LeBron would have scored again.  Great game so far.
  • Felton and Kidd got on a 9-0 run to start the 3rd!
  • An 11-0 run after a 9-0 run and 8 made 3′s by 5 different players.
  • LeBron with a monster dunk.  He looks super pissed out there.  He’s also the only player on the Heat who isn’t sucking.
  • Smith has been getting mauled all quarter.  Foul on Smith.
  • LeBron is about 2 uncontested layups away from going postal on his teammates.
  • One of these years Rasheed is going to hit one of these 3′s.
  • 3rd 9-0 run of the game, Knicks up by over 20.
  • I heard Stern almost fined the Heat $250K tonight until he realized that Bosh and Wade actually played tonight.

Knicks are the number 1 seed after having beat the #2 seed twice this season by a total of 40 points!
