I swear, the NBA All-Star break is waaaaaaay too long. They should fix that next season. Who needs this much time to recuperate? It was so long that I totally lost track of when the second half began, so my apologies for missing the start of this game thread.
This game tonight marks a new journey for both teams to play the rest of the season without their highest-paid player. The Knicks are going to be without Carmelo Anthony for the rest of the season and sadly, the Heat are going to be without Chris Bosh after he came down with blood clots in his lungs. That is some scary stuff. Our best wishes to Chris Bosh.
As for tonight, the Knicks miss out on new Heat point guard Goran Dragic but Dwayne Wade is back. I think the Knicks will keep this close and maybe even steal a win. Udonis Haslem will dust himself off and start at power forward. Cleanthony Early takes over Melo’s spot in the lineup.
Let’s go! Knicks?
