Knicks vs. Heat: Preview

Posted: January 28, 2011 in Uncategorized

“Nobody is afraid of the Miami Heat”. This is what Amar’e Stoudemire told the media today. This is true especially when the Heat are playing without Chris Bosh. Obviously this is a huge test for the Knicks, who were blown out at MSG earlier in the season by the Heat. If you are a Knicks’ fan you are looking for them to play up to the competition and pull out a win. My key player in tonight’s game is Danilo Gallinari. Gallinari will most likely get the assignment of guarding LeBron James. LeBron has killed the Knicks, pouring in close to 32 points a game against them. Oh yeah, the Heat also feature that Dwayne Wade guy. Landry Fields will draw that assignment and you can expect him to be very physical with Wade, who is coming off injury.

Another Knicks’ key tonight will be rebounding. In their prior 2 meetings, Joel Anthony has killed the Knicks on the offensive boards. The Knicks cannot give Wade and James any second chance opportunies. I also look to the Raymond Felton/ Mario Chalmers match-up. This is a match-up Felton needs to look to exploit and have a big game. Hopefully Knicks’ fans give Lebron James the boos he rightfully deserves. Lets Go Knicks!
