Heat Have Great Track Record vs Knicks

You can’t blame the New York Knicks if they’re looking more nervous than usual for tonight’s contest with the Miami Heat at American Airlines Arena. The Heat have absolutely dominated this series as of late, garnering eight wins in a row against their Eastern Conference foes including two wins earlier this season by an average of 18 points. The Heat limited the Knickerbockers to a paltry 78 points in both outings.

Shark Bites
  • The Heat are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games.
  • The OVER is 9-3 in the Knicks' last 12 games.
  • The OVER is 6-2 in the last eight meetings between the Knicks and Heat in Miami.

The Heat have won three-straight heading into the tilt – a season high – thanks to a 103-100 overtime victory over the Indiana Pacers that saw them erase an 18 point deficit. New York has won two straight to improve to 17-19 SU while looking like a completely different team from last year’s club that posted a woeful 17-65 record – the worst season in franchise history.

A big reason for New York’s success is the emergence of Latvian rookie sensation Kristaps Porzingis. Porzingis is averaging 13.2 points, 8.1 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game in the 2015-16 campaign and has been especially good in the last few weeks, collecting three double-doubles in the Knicks’ last seven games.
