A game six in the NBA playoff series between the Heat and Knicks will be played if necessary Friday night at 8PM Eastern Time on ESPN from Madison Square Garden in New York. If the Knicks can get the series back to New York they have confidence they built up following their game four 89-87 home win against the Heat as +9 ½ point underdog. The Heat is 19-16 straight up on the road this season. Amare Stoudemire returned to the Knicks lineup on in game four following his absence from game three. Stoudemire responded with a solid game four with 20 points and ten rebounds as he converted 8 of his 13 shots. Carmelo Anthony came up big with 41 points as the All Star made 15 of his 29 shots. The Knicks have been hit hard in their guard position as the club is without Baron Davis, Jeremy Lin and Iman Shumpert who are likely out for the remainder of this series and possibly season to injury.

The nightcap scheduled will be played if necessary as the Grizzlies will be looking to force a deciding game seven as they travel to Staples Center to be face the LA Clippers who will be looking for the close out. There is a very good chance that this game will be played as the Grizzlies were down 3-1 and playing for their playoff lives as a -6 ½ point home favorite in game five on Wednesday. Memphis will need to find a way to beat the Clippers at Staples Center. The LA Clippers are 4-0 straight up against Memphis this season at home. It was two heartbreaking losses for Memphis in LA as Rudy Gay missed a buzzer beating shot in game three and the Grizzlies fell short in an overtime loss to LA in game four. The Clippers free throw shooting at home in this series has been atrocious as the club has converted on just 41 of 70 or 56.1% of their shots.
