The Miami Heat, once again, came out on Wednesday evening with violence on their mind, as they welcomed the New York Knicks into the FTX Arena.

To be completely clear, the final score is not indicative of just how bad it was. Jumping on the New York Knicks from the very start of the contest, the Miami Heat would put their feet on the Knicks’ necks early, never really looking back.

Though similar to what they did against the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday, it was different too. Once they put the pressure down on the Knicks, never allowing them to secure a footing in the game, this lead would be a completely insurmountable one.

You say that, as they nearly allowed the Lakers to come back. They didn’t quite allow the Knicks to get back that close though.

When they looked as though they were looking to pull back, later in the fourth quarter, the Miami Heat quickly took the lead back out 20 plus points.

It was a brilliant all-around showing for this Miami Heat team.

The Miami Heat stepped onto the floor Wednesday night with violence on their minds. They proceeded to fully and completely dominate the New York Knicks.

Jimmy Butler continued to be the guy he’s been since coming to Miami, the do-everything leader and muscle for the team.

Bam Adebayo didn’t fill it up, from a scoring perspective, but he did do everything else. That includes playing his usual tenacious defense and versatile all-around floor game.

Tyler Herro jumped right back into the fray, becoming the tough shot-maker that he always is.

P.J. Tucker continued upon a resurgent year for himself. To be frank, he looks like a guy that we’ve never seen before on the offensive end.

Duncan Robinson might be fully back as well. He would continue his hot shooting ways, scoring 25 points on 9-13 from the floor and 7-11 from three.

This was complete domination of the New York Knicks and indicative of what the Miami Heat have a chance to do to the rest of the Eastern Conference and NBA, for that matter.

If they continue to maintain this pace and intensity, regardless of who the opponent may be on a given night, they should have a chance to win every game they play.
