Game: Miami Heat at New York Knicks Apr 15 2012 1:05PM
Prediction: Miami Heat
Grade: Winner (100)
Reason: The Knicks are playing good basketball right now and because of that we are catching a solid line with Miami. They have a nine-game home winning streak and are 7-3 in their past 10 games and they are in a fight with Philadelphia for seventh place with Milwaukee sitting just 2.5 games back in ninth place. That makes all of these games important for New York but the feeling here is that it simply cannot match up and it has struggled against the top teams, going 6-12 against the top 10. Miami is still keeping a slim hope alive for first place in the Eastern Conference but that is likely not going to happen. Many can argue that the Heat may take the final portion of the regular season to rest and get more healthy but they are not going to be taking that approach at all. "The most important thing for us is we're trying to get an optimal level of play where we're playing at a high level," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "We're not there yet, particularly on the road." That is important to hear as Miami needs to head into the playoffs with some momentum and confidence as it is just 6-6 over its last 12 games and that is not a record of a championship caliber team. The Heat's road struggles are pretty well documented but the teams that they have been losing to are all in the upper half of the playoff seedings and while no losses are good losses, at least they are against powerful opponents. Miami is 29-9 against teams ranked outside the top 10. The Heat should have Dwyane Wade and Udonis Haslem back after Miami used Friday's rout of Charlotte to rest Wade's minor injuries and Haslem's bad stomach. New York has lost both regular season meetings this season and rather handily, both taking place in Miami. That sets up a revenge spot but not a good one as we play against home teams where the line is +3 to -3 that are revenging a loss against an opponent after a cover as a double digit favorite. This situation is 64-32 ATS (66.7 percent) since 1996. 10* (501) Miami Heat
