Knicks Vs. Heat Halftime Score: New York Down 4 At Intermission

The New York Knicks are locked in a tight battle with the Miami Heat halfway through Thursday night's game. Both teams are shooting better than 45 percent for the game. The Knicks have turned the ball over 15 times to nine for the Heat, however, and as a result they go into the locker room down 51-47.

Jeremy Lin played arguably his worst half of basketball since his meteoric rise to stardom began. He has just two points on 1-for-5 shooting, and dished out just two assists to six turnovers. Carmelo Anthony still hasn't found his finishing touch, but he does have five rebounds to go along with his nine points. New York is once again getting quality minutes from Steve Novak, who has nine points on 3-for-3 shooting from beyond the 3-point arc.

Dwyane Wade leads the Heat in scoring with 12 points, and LeBron James lead everywhere else on the stat sheet with four assists, five rebounds, and two blocks in addition to his nine points. The Heat took a 10-4 lead early in the first quarter, but the Knicks chipped away to draw even just before the second.
