The Miami Heat elongated their winning streak against the New York Knicks on Wednesday evening. In the second game of a four-game homestand, Miami started both halves strong and wiped the New York out from the get-go.
This game particularly showed how fantasy basketball value can differ from on-court value. Let’s take a deeper look at what that means.
