Miami Heat vs New York Knicks Final Score: Heat Destroy Knicks 108-82

TNT switched to the Toronto Raptors vs Washington Wizards game midway through the fourth quarter.

I suggest you just switch to the recap of that game.

For those of you that didn’t here is tonight’s gamer:

LeBron James, masked and all, scored 31 points on 13-19 shooting. Dwyane Wade went 10 for 13 with 23 points. Nine players scored for Miami.

Really, there is not much else to say.

The real story was how bad the Knicks looked. Sans Carmelo Anthony, it didn’t even look like anyone else on New York knew they were playing a basketball game.

Melo had 29 important points. Tyson Chandler had 19 consequential ones, mostly due to the Heat’s lack of size and/or concern with him in the paint. J.R. Smith filed 11 points on nine shots.

A once proud rivalry has devolved into TNT switching to a game in Toronto.

The Heat didn’t look entirely impressive. There was sloppy passes, lazy offense and defense from time-to-time. However, it was enough.

More than enough.

If you asked the Knicks players to tie their shoes in the third quarter, they all would have ended up on the trainer’s table. They are completely incompetent, led by a coach who doesn’t even deserve the title or the verb.

Rather, Mike Woodson stood on the sideline and watched Anthony toil away trying to create the illusion of a basketball game as effectively as Gob Bluth burying himself alive.

With the win, Miami is two games behind the Indiana Pacers. The Heat host the Orlando Magic at 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, March 1.
