The Heat were in New York yesterday afternoon to take on the Knicks. Prior to this game the Knicks were 2-0 vs. the Heat this year and both wins were comfortably, by double-digits.
The Knicks were up by 15 at halftime, but the Heat took over in the second half and won by six, 99-93. They have now won a franchise record 14 in a row.
James scored 19 points in the second half, including 12 in the fourth quarter as the Heat overcame a 59-44 halftime deficit and clobbered the Knicks 54-34 in the second half.
James played all 24 minutes after halftime.
“I don’t want to just assume that he can play 40-plus minutes, but he had to do it on both ends,” Spoelstra said. “Couldn’t get him out in the fourth quarter. If I would have tried, he probably would have strangled me. …
“Either scoring or facilitating for us, he was strong and was the strongest after 40 minutes of basketball.”
