The hardwood action gets going at 8PM Eastern Time on TNT TV as the Miami Heat will travel to face the New York Knicks. Heading into Tuesday’s action the Miami Heat carry a record of 26-8 on the season with an 11-5 mark on the road. The Heat will be entering a trying season in 2013-14. They have appeared in three straight Finals winning the past two. Counting preseason games that mean Miami has played basketball from October through the middle of June for the past three years. If they make it to the Finals in 2014 it will be four straight years playing NBA ball for nearly 9 months. That is a pretty intense schedule and explains why the Heat will use caution when dealing with even minor ailments to their star athletics. We have seen Dwyane Wade sitting out games this season for rest to get him ready for the playoffs. LeBron James was held out of games for a minor groin issue but nothing serious. The New York Knicks got off to poor start as the team sits 11-22 heading into Tuesday’s action. The good news for the Knicks is the fact they are not hopelessly behind the playoff hunt because the Eastern conference is very weak. New York is just 2 ½ games behind the eighth seeded Detroit Pistons heading into Tuesday.

The second game of the doubleheader will be a Western conference affair as the Oklahoma City Thunder will travel to face the Denver Nuggets. The Thunder and Nuggets get started from Denver at 10:30PM Eastern Time with national television coverage provided by TNT TV. Entering action Tuesday the Denver Nuggets are just 8-8 straight up on their home court. The natives are restless in Denver as they are calling for head coach Brian Shaw’s head as he replaced a popular coach in George Karl who was fired in the offseason. OKC is trying to navigate for the next month in a half without the services of injured point guard Russell Westbrook.
