New York Knicks Third-Worst NBA Team of Entire 21st Century

"Go out there and play free and have fun".

He did not look at it as a night off. It was only the fourth win in the last 15 games for NY.

"Our guys understand what's at hand and I want our guys to embrace this challenge and enjoy it", Spoelstra said.

Heat: Miami's 37 wins tie the most ever by a team that was 19 games under.500 at any point in a season.

"To be honest with you, I'm gonna have to go at my old coach, Phil Jackson", Pippen said. "It was the pockets of mental mistakes that would lead to easy baskets, deflating baskets".

Porzingis led the Knicks (29-47) with 22 points and Lee added 20. We came out with a different mentality, playing strong, defense the whole game and offensively we shared the ball. Additionally, while Miami thrives off ball movement Dragic elected to put on his best Russell Westbrook impression and attempt to do everything himself. The whistle blew, the officials gathered, the review was conclusive. The Knicks' point guard sat out Wednesday's game against the Heat with a sore left knee, according to head coach Jeff Hornacek.

The Heat would find success with their reserves and keep the score close thanks to a solid effort from James Johnson and Wayne Ellington.

But with Whiteside working his way to the line, they tied it 90-90 with 5:25 left.

"No, I think we're more talented", Rose said Friday before the two teams play in Miami.

Tyler Johnson and James Johnson headed immediately to the Heat practice court for some postgame shots.

If the season ended right now, the Knicks would own the fifth pick in the draft, but the draft lottery is in May.

Kristaps Porzingis and Willy Hernangomez proved again to be a superior duo that will become stronger over time.

Democrats threaten delay on Supreme Court nominee
Hearings for a Supreme Court nominee usually dominate Congress, but that's not been the case over the four days of hearings. Democrats have threatened to force any of Trump's Supreme Court nominees to clear procedural hurdles since a year ago .

Miami did not play well tonight.

Way too much late-game goodness from Justin Holiday, who played with more composure than anyone on either team down the stretch.

Heat: Dion Waiters (ankle) continues progressing, though no timetable has been set for his return.

Remember when the New York Knicks signed Brandon Jennings, Joakim Noah, and Derek Rose in the offseason, and claimed that they would be a playoff team this season?

Felton was a steady presence for the Knicks during the 12-13 campaign, starting 68 games and averaging 13.9 points and 5.5 assists per contest. Conversely, of the Heat's six remaining games, four are against playoff teams - Washington twice, Toronto and Cleveland.

The Heat's only leads to that stage had been a pair of one-point edges in the second and third periods.

The Heat fell behind by eight in the second period before recovering to close within 59-55 at halftime, with Dragic up to 16 points by then. They outscored the Knicks 24-22.

And on a night when the Heat were expected to get back to.500, could have put some distance between themselves and IN and Chicago and taken a tighter grip on the seventh spot, now they are 37-39 after the 98-94 loss and clinging to that playoff spot.

Heat: Host Denver on Sunday, Miami's final game this regular season against a Western Conference opponent.

The Heat were struggling against the lowly, undermanned Knicks with one field goal in the final 8:54 of the game but still were in position to at least extend the game to overtime.

National Basketball Association agrees with Knicks doctors that Joakim Noah can resume playing, so suspension starts: Joakim Noah should make his 2017-18 season debut for the Knicks in Game 13, if he's healthy.

The Knicks entered on a seven-game road losing streak.
