Knicks vs Heat 11/30/14 – Game Recap

Written by William Lee

Both team’s superstar returned to action Sunday night from injury, Dwyane Wade with a strained left hamstring, and Carmelo Anthony from back spasms.

Both teams were inept on offense in the first quarter, Heat shot 27.3% while the Knicks shot 33.3%. However the Heat got to the line, going a perfect 8-for-8 from the charity stripe. Miami who are sixth in league in stealing with 8.3 steals per game, took advantage of New York’s sloppy play early on, getting five steals alone in the first quarter. Amare Stoudemire came off the bench and his energy really kept the Knicks in the game, making three straight baskets once inserted. Stoudemire finished the game with a double-double with 19 points and 12 rebounds. New York only trailed 21-17 after the opening quarter.

James Ennis, a rookie forward from Long Beach State went berserk, personally responsible for a 10-2 run to start the second quarter. Ennis showed off all his offensive skills, first a pull up mid-range jump shot, then a three-pointer, before finally getting free to the rim for a slam dunk. Then he would give a helping hand, setting up Josh McRoberts for a wide open three. Just like that New York saw themselves down 34-21 four minutes into the second quarter.

Knicks scare the crap out of Knick Nation before beating Magic

Well that was close.  After starting the game down 14-2 to the lowly Magic the Knicks come back to beat Orlando.

  • More Camby lobs please.
  • Melo was in video game mode.  Especially in the 4th where he had a stream of fire coming out the back of the ball during his shots.
  • I didn’t know Charlie Day from It’s Always Sunny was on the Magic.
  • Amare needs to call Hakeen and ask how to finish these moves without getting his shot blocked.  It’s amazing how many of his shots get rejected.  His defense didn’t look great either (surprise surprise).  At least he hit all his free throws.
  • I’m still waiting to hear that Brewer has been playing injured.
  • Nelson got shut down in the 4th quarter, he was on pace for a Knick Effect tonight.  Nicholson was too before he faded.
  • Jason Kidd.  39 years old.  15-8-7.  Amazing.
  • It would be really nice if the Knicks could start games like they finish them.  It would make life a lot less stressful for everyone involved.
  • That’s about all I have to say about tonights game.  Bring on Boston.  Hopefully the Knicks can push them further below .500 on Monday.
