Good evening! Tonight the Knicks hit the third stop in their four-game road trip to face the Heat in what might be their most difficult game on this journey. New York's health and lineups remain intact. The Heat, meanwhile, have all their guys, including the mighty Bosh/Whiteside frontcourt and Goran Dragic knifin' around with the ball. New York beat guys got into Heat practice today and got them all grumbling about Kristaps Porzingis:
Hassan Whiteside on Porzingis hype: "He plays in New York. They're gonna want everybody to see."— Stefan Bondy (@SBondyNYDN) November 23, 2015
Dwyane Wade said Porzingis is someone you game plan for - his shooting, offensive rebounding— Al Iannazzone (@Al_Iannazzone) November 23, 2015
Chris Bosh says other teams have underestimated Porzingis and gave him open shots. Says Heat won't do that.— Stefan Bondy (@SBondyNYDN) November 23, 2015
Cool! Glad everyone's so excited to play Kristaps. Maybe this'll be a big bounce-back game for Carmelo Anthony!
Anyway, the Heat are going to be a really tough opponent, but if the Knicks are awake, maybe they can extend this streak. Tip-off is at 7:30 on MSG and NBA TV. This is your game thread.
