Dragic, Heat roll to 105-88 victory over Knicks

Goran Dragic had 20 points, nine assists and seven rebounds, and the Miami Heat breezed to an easy victory a night after going down to the wire, beating the New York Knicks 105-88 on Wednesday ni

With tonight's loss to the Heat, the Knicks are mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. They have missed the playoffs for four straight seasons, including Phil Jackson's three full seasons as team president.

Carmelo Anthony did not score a field goal in the first half (0-for-2 shooting) and Kristaps Porzingis had just one on six shots. Certainly seems like the emphasis is on letting the younger guys dictate things. Mindaugas Kuzminskas leads NY with 8 field goal attempts.

Carmelo Anthony has played just nine minutes so far and we're eight minutes into the second quarter. I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up playing around 20-25 minutes tonight.

The NBA's independent medical expert has concluded that Joakim Noah is physically able to play. His 20-game suspension for violating the league's anti-drug policy will begin with Wednesday's game. He will miss the first 12 games of the 2017-18 season.

Philadelphia's win over Brooklyn leaves the Knicks (28-46) and Sixers in a tie for the NBA's 5th-worst record. Both teams are a game 'behind' Orlando (27-47) in the tanking standings.
