LeBron James scored 38 points, Mario Chalmers added 15 and the Miami Heat survived a 3-point barrage from New York’s J.R. Smith on the way to dealing the Knicks’ playoff hopes a big blow with a 102-91 victory on Sunday.
With more than 50 wins for the New York Knicks and more than 27 points per game for himself, the numbers back Melo up. The Knicks won a division title, and Anthony will add the scoring title after the regular season ends Wednesday.
LeBron James chalked up 29 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists to help the Miami Heat tie a franchise record with their 14th straight victory.
The New York Knicks look like a true contender to the Miami Heat’s Eastern Conference dominance, but is it a mirage or should the Heat truly fear the Knicks in the postseason?
The Miami Heat had been undefeated at home heading into Thursday night’s game against the New York Knicks. The Heat had won a few close games and New York was without Carmelo Anthony, so it looked like another Heat win was very possible.
