New York Knicks

The New York Knicks have been awful this season. It’s true that they had a three-game winning streak going strong just a few weeks ago, but they’re currently enduring a three-game drought, coming off a 106-92 loss to the Golden State Warriors.

At this point, the Knicks are 28th in the NBA in points scored per game. To make matters worse, they’re 20th in points per game allowed.

That’s hardly a recipe for success, and it’s why they’ve won just 10 contests entering this one with the Miami Heat.

Miami Heat

Like the New York Knicks, the Miami Heat are struggling on offense. In fact, the team from South Beach is even worse off on that end of the floor.

So far this season, Miami is just 29th in points scored per contest. The team is averaging 92.4 points per game compared to 92.7 for the Knickerbockers.

Defense, however, is where the difference is.

On defense, the Knicks are allowing opponents to score 100.3 points per contest. Miami, on the other hand, is holding opponents to 96.3 points per game.

That number is second in the entire Association, and it’s why this group has a chance of doing damage in the playoffs with the Eastern Conference struggling to stay relevant at times while the West flourishes.

4* NBA Prediction: Miami -5

Look for the Heat to cone away with a solid win in this one. New York is struggling, and the Heat defense should get them a win against one of the most anemic offenses in the game today
