I know I haven’t posted in a while but I just wanted to get one in before tonight’s huge game against the Knicks. Are the Knicks really making a case for being the best team in the East with the addition of Jeremy Lin? Here are three things to watch for:
1. Will Wade or LeBron end up guarding Lin, especially if Carmelo is not in the game? James did have defensive duties against Derrick Rose in the playoffs so I wouldn’t be surprised if the Heat switched up their defense tonight.
2. Will Jeremy Lin be able to handle the pressure in South Beach? The atmosphere is going to be electric tonight. Lin has proven time and time again that he is not afraid of the spotlight so it shouldn’t be an issue but the AAA can get pretty intense.
3. The three point shooting of the Knicks has been off the charts recently and is unfortunately, something the Heat have trouble defending. They had problems in their last game against the Kings against the three so it will be a major factor in tonight’s game.
