The New York Knicks team returned home to Madison Square Garden on Thursday night down 0-2 in their series with the Miami Heat needing a win desperately. The Knicks were horrid in their first playoff game at home as the club dropped an 87-70 decision in game three to the Miami Heat as a +5 ½ point underdog. The Knicks put on an embarrassing shooting display as the club made just 31.9% from the floor and 4 of 20 from the three point line. Carmelo Anthony scored 22 points for the Knicks but he shot just 7 of 23 from the floor to accomplish those scoring numbers. J.R. Smith acquired this season from Denver to give the Knicks some scoring off the bench shot poorly in his home playoff debut making a miserable 5 of 18 from the field to finish with 12 points.

Lebron James had 32 points and 8 rebounds in game three to lead the Heat’s victory. You can understand the concern in game four for some bettors shying away from the Heat tonight considering Miami had Friday and Saturday night’s off in New York awaiting their Sunday game four game. Miami learned their lessons from last year when they looked fatigue in their NBA Finals loss to Dallas so their minds should be focused here to close out because the added rest will help their chances at an NBA championship.
