  • Total Score: O 208

As the NBA playoffs continue, the Miami Heat look to extend their lead in the series against the New York Knicks. The Heat won Game 1 with a score of 108-101 and are looking to continue their momentum in Game 2.

The Knicks will have home court advantage for this game, and they will need it as they try to bounce back from their loss in Game 1. The team averages an impressive 115 points per game, shooting at a field goal percentage of almost 47%.

However, they struggle from behind the arc with only a 34.9% success rate on three-pointers. On defense, the Knicks rely heavily on rebounds and steals to stop their opponents. They average over 46 rebounds per game and make an average of almost seven steals each night. However, turnovers could be an issue for them as they average over 12 per game.

The Miami Heat have been strong on offense throughout this season, averaging just above 110 points per game while shooting at a decent field goal percentage of around 46%. Their strength lies particularly in free throws, where they shoot at an excellent percentage of over 82%.

On defense, Miami is able to hold its own by grabbing more than 40 total rebounds and making around eight steals each away game. They do tend to commit more fouls than their opponents though.

Based on these statistics alone, one might predict that New York will win due to its high-scoring offense during home games; however, other stats such as field goal percentage indicate that it may not be enough if Miami steps up defensively.

Ultimately it’s going to come down to whether or not the Knicks can capitalize on any mistakes made by Miami while limiting turnovers themselves. If they can handle pressure well then this should give them some breathing room even when things get tight late into games – which we expect given how close these teams are matched up!
