What’s Going On Miami?

Although the Miami Heat have been one of the best teams in the NBA for most of the year, they’re going to be coming into this one playing their worst basketball of the year. Not only are they going to be coming into this one playing their worst basketball, but there also seems to be some tension inside their locker room.

Miami is going to be coming into this one after a disappointing loss to the Golden State Warriors, where the Warriors didn’t have Stephen Curry or Draymond Green. Miami ended up losing this one by 14 points.

On the season, Miami has the sixth rated net rating, the 13th rated offensive rating, and the fifth rated defensive rating.

Knicks Looking For Anything

This season, there can certainly be an argument made that the New York Knicks have been the most disappointing team in basketball. After making it to a playoff series for the first time in quite some time a year ago, the Knicks came out this year and absolutely looked horrible. They’re going to be coming into this one at 31-42 and the 11th seed in the Eastern Conference.

Although the Knicks haven’t been playing well this year, they were able to come away with an impressive win over the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday.

On the season, the Knicks have the 28th rated net rating, the 24th rated offensive rating, and the 11th rated defensive rating.

Free NBA Picks — Heat vs Knicks

For this game, I’m going to go with the New York Knicks to cover the spread. Putting money on the Knicks is one of my least favorite things to do, but when factoring in all of the issues Miami is dealing with, I think the Knicks can cover in this one.

I also like the Knicks to win outright and will toss some money on them to do so. With the recent fight on the Heats’ bench, I think this team is heading towards a downward trajectory.
