Heat Vs. Knicks, 2012 NBA Playoffs Game 1: Knicks Lose 100-67, Iman Shumpert Injured

The New York Knicks are now three games away from elimination, as they were absolutely manhandled Saturday in Game One of their first-round 2012 NBA Playoff series with the Miami Heat. Adding injury to insult, the Knicks lost rookie guard, Iman Shumpert, in the third quarter, with what looked to be a significant knee injury.

J.R. Smith was the Knicks leading scorer with 17 points off the bench, while Amar'e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony combined for 20 points on 5-22 from the floor.

LeBron James was a man among boys Saturday. He scored 32 points on 14 shots and 14 free throws. He added four steals, three assists and four boards.
