Game Thread: Knicks at Heat- 4/6/14

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Everybody get up it's time for slamming

Good day! Wake up! The Knicks have another important game to play! They're in Miami today to face the Heat. They could really use a win. Good news on that front:

Wade out is nice, and no Oden or Andersen means the Heat will be suuuuper small. I guess Chris Bosh starts at the five? And then...Justin Hamilton? Or will they just let LeBron play center and probably kill the Knicks in that role?

New York's lineup is the same. Carmelo Anthony will start despite his shoulder troubles.

I don't know what to make of this one. The Knicks haven't matched up all that well with the Heat this season, winning early then getting blown out twice. Miami is short-handed and only has seeding to play for, but as some have said, may be interested in keeping the Knicks down so they can face the Hawks in the first round. (Right? The Heat would probably rather face the Hawks than the Knicks? That's not just my bias speaking?). The Hawks play the Pacers tonight, by the way.

Tip-off today is at 1 PM on ABC. This is your game thread. This is Hot Hot Hoops. Please don't post large photos, GIFs, or links to illegal streams in the thread. Go the Knicks. Y'all have ample time off after this game, so go ahead and give it your all.
