Despite Carmelo Anthony’s best efforts, the Knicks just couldn’t put away the unstoppable Heat.
This win for Miami has moved them to 14 straight wins, tying the franchise record, but they had to work for every point against an impressive Knicks team.
Despite flat out dominating the first three quarters in which the Knicks led the game by 16 at one point, the Heat, and Lebron James, turned it on late to pull off an unlikely comeback win.
New York will feel they upset at the fact that they have managed to lose a game they should have rightfully won, and will be left confused as to how it happened.
The Heat on the other hand proved once more why they are favourites to retaing their world title, after being able to fight back hard late on to grind out a win. The exclamation point was made with 30 seconds left, as Lebron James made the steal and powered home a slam dunk to put the game out of reach.
The Knicks are the closest team to Miami in the Eastern Conference, and on the scoreline, they are still some way off the pace, which is bad news for teams everywhere.
