The New York Knicks will once again look to extend their season with a win against the Miami Heat on Wednesday night in Game Five of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals.

New York was able to stave off elimination on Sunday afternoon, winning its first playoff game in over a decade by beating Miami 89-87.

Carmelo Anthony was feeling it, scoring 41 points in the game to lead the Knicks to victory. If the same outcome is to happen again, Anthony will need a similar performance.

Amare Stoudemire will also need to provide a serious lift, one hand or not. He was brilliant in Game Four and needs to be against Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James once more.

The rest of the Knicks need to play better though for any realisitic chance of an upset. No other player scored more than seven points on Sunday. J.R. Smith and Steve Novak are two prime candidates to get going, especially from the outside.

New York is in rough shape with so many injuries and facing a loaded team. However, if the Knicks can pull out a win, it becomes a series with a wild Madison Square Garden crowd awaiting.


Time: 7 p.m. ET
