This should be easy.
The Knicks are intentionally awful, worst in the East at 14-61, and arguably the worst franchise in the East over the past five years.
But, with the Heat missing Justise Winslow, Josh Richardson and Rodney McGruder — and having struggled against some of the NBA’s worst teams already — nothing can be taken for granted.
Simply, they need to get something of significance from three of the highest-paid veterans on the roster: Hassan Whiteside, Dion Waiters and James Johnson.
The good news is Waiters has been a little better of late, averaging 20.3 points in his past three games, with reasonable efficiency.
The Heat had a short morning shootaround in Manhattan and John Kozan of Miami Heat Beat was there to cover it (and take the photo above).
Tip is at 7:30 p.m.
