The Knicks went 18-6 under Mike Woodson which equals a .750 win percentage. According to Elias, only FIVE times in NBA postseason history did a coach have a regular season win percentage of .750 or better and then open the postseason with 2 losses. But there's good news for Woodson - Avery Johnson and Paul Westphal, the last two coaches to fall under this category, led their team to a comeback win in the series.
The Knicks actually played well without Stoudemire this season, going 14-5 and outscoring opponents by 7 PPG.
The Knicks had just 15 assists on 38 made field goals (39.5 percent) Game 2 against the Heat. That's the Knicks' second-lowest assist percentage in a game this season (36.8 percent, 4/3 at Pacers).
The Heat offense against the Knicks this series has been sparked by spot up shooting. The Heat are nearly doubling their points per game on spot ups in the postseason so far.
Jackie MacMullan believes several NBA teams will offer Kevin Garnett positions after he announced his retirement.
With the Pelicans facing the possibility of missing the playoffs yet again, they need Anthony Davis more than ever to get the franchise through tough times.
With Derrick Rose leading the Knicks' reinforcements around Carmelo Anthony, team brass hopes he can turn their playmaking into easier baskets.
