Good evening, friends. After a couple days off (one of them-- last night-- in Miami...) the Knicks play the Heat tonight. It's on TNT, starting off what promises to be a very enriching three out of the next four nights with Knicks games on national television. We also got some extra futile-Melo-question-askin' today, which was lovely.
But anyway, there's a game with the Heat, and the Knicks tend to play the Heat pretty close. The Knicks will go back to a smaller lineup to start:

And it doesn't sound like we'll see much of Shannon Brown or Earl Clark, barring garbage time:

That's what's up. LeBron James will be back with the Heat, wearing a mask to match J.R. Smith's. Maybe the Knicks can make a game of it. They have before.
Tip-off is at 8 PM. This is your game thread. This is Hot Hot Hoops, where I answered some questions about the Knicks earlier. Please don't post large photos, GIFs, or links to illegal streams in the game thread. Basketball.
