Heat are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall, 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 2 days rest and are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Friday games.

Ray Allen came off the bench to score 19 points on 5-of-7 shooting as the Heat defeated Boston, playing the fourth quarter without LeBron James who had leg cramps. The rest of the bench is still finding its way into the rotation but the starters are in midseason form. New York's issues being with age and injures as they added 38-year old Jason Kidd, 38-year-old Marcus Camby, 38-year-old Rasheed Wallace and along with 40-year-old Kurt Thomas. The other issue is that star F Amare Stoudemire is out indefinitely due to a knee injury. The Heat are too athletic and will force the Knicks to play their uptempo game, which favors the Heat.
