    One thought to “Knicks Morning News (Monday, Jun 10 2013)”

    1. As inconsistent as Miami is, they do win every game they need to win, and most of the time handily. That’s why as hard as I am rooting for the Spurs, it’s going to be very tough for them to pull out this series. Even if they win 2 out of 3 at home, I could easily see the Heat winning the next 2. When they’re focused and play that ultra intense defense, it’s very hard to beat them.
