New York Knicks vs Miami Heat takes place in the NBA on Tuesday night from the American Airlines Arena in Miami. Tip off is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET and can be watched on TV on TNT, or alternatively can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
The Heat have recently been cut down just short of the NBA record for number of consecutive wins when they were overcome by the Chicago Bulls. However, they are still having an amazing season and will be hot favorites to win this game.
Miami have a fantastic home record this season, with 32 wins and just three losses, and if they continue that form the Knicks could have a tough time tonight.
However, the Knicks themselves are on a good run right now and will feel this is a good opportunity to take down the current NBA champs.
In addition, LeBron James and Dwyane Wade will be out of today's clash and won't be standing in the way of the Knicks' attempt to lengthen their winning streak to nine games tonight. That will be a huge loss for the Heat, and a massive boost for the Knicks.
Head coach Erik Spoelstra announced early on Tuesday morning that the two keys players would not be available for tonight's game, as James has a sore right hamstring, where as Wade is suffering from a sore right ankle.
After the Knick's win over the Celtics, Carmelo Anthony was asked about today's game. On the topic of whether LeBron James and Dwyane Wade would be available to face them he said, "If they play, it's cool. If they don't, it's cool."
