The New York Knicks will host LeBron James and the Miami Heat on Sunday, in a matinee at the Garden. Today's game could very well be a preview of things to come in the NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs. As it stands, the Heat (two seed) would play the Knicks (seven seed), if the season ended today. It's no guarantee, though, because the Sixers – who could pass the Knicks over the last few games – have the same record as the Knicks.
Sunday will be the third and final meeting between the Knicks and Heat this regular season. The Heat have won the previous two by double digits.
The Knicks will either gain or lose ground on the Sixers, who are idle today.
Time: 1 p.m. ET
