Heat 113, Knicks 91: Big Three Too Much For Knicks

The New York Knicks went toe-to-toe with the Miami Heat for the first 24 minutes Friday night, finishing the first half tied, 57-57. Unfortunately, NBA games are 48 minutes long.

The Knicks had no answers for LeBron James and the Miami Heat in the second half as the Heat pulled away for a 113-91 victory. Miami took control with a 33-17 third quarter, and the Knicks never threatened in the final quarter.

James had a triple-double with 32 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists. Chris Bosh answered night-long chants of "Over-rated" with 26 points and Dwayne Wade had 26 points, eight rebounds and five assists for Miami. The Heat (20-8) have won 11 straight, 10 of those by double-digit margins.

Amare Stoudemire had his streak of consecutive games scoring at least 30 points snapped at nine. Stoudemire scored 24 points, but was harassed all night by multiple Miami defenders and made just 11-of-28 shots. Danilo Gallinari had 25 points to lead the Knicks.

The Knicks are now 16-10 after consecutive losses to Eastern Conference powers Boston and Miami.
