End of Game
The Knicks won by 20 despite being outscored 17-2 in fast-break points. Two of the last three teams to win by 20+ points with 2 fast-break points or fewer have been the Knicks. They also did it last season against the Magic.
From Elias: The Knicks made 18 3-pointers against the Heat Thursday after making 19 in their previous meeting on November 2. It's the first time in NBA history that a team made 18+ 3-pt FG in each of 2 straight games vs 1 team.
From Elias: Since 2000, there have been 4 teams to record a pair of 20-point wins vs the defending NBA champs -- and TWICE it has been the Knicks against the Heat. They had a pair of 20-point wins vs the Heat in the 2006-07 season as well. The Heat are on the bad side of this list 3 times....
Tonight's 20-point home loss to the Knicks is the Heat's worst home loss in games with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh all playing. Previously, their worst home loss with the "Big 3" was a 16-point loss to the Pacers on November 22, 2010. Tonight's loss was only their fourth double-digit home loss and 13th home loss overall with all 3 players playing.
Dwyane Wade went 3-13 and had 4 turnovers in this game... his plus-minus rating in this game was the worst of his 10-year career, as the Heat were outscored by an enormous 33 points while D-Wade was on the floor...
