Carmelo Anthony had 30 points and 10 rebounds, and the Knicks gave suffering New Yorkers something to cheer with a 104-84 victory over the Miami Heat in their storm-delayed season opener Friday night.
With New York hit hard by Superstorm Sandy, the Knicks’ game scheduled for Thursday in Brooklyn was postponed, and Heat players thought theirs would follow.
We know exactly what kind of person Wade is, if we didn’t know already. He could care less about anyone else’s suffering. He only wants to know how it will affect his life.
“3 hour traffic just to get into the NY city . . . #C’monMan,” Wade tweeted — and later deleted.
LeBron James and the champs. Opening night at MSG. Under normal circumstances, as electric a scene as there is in the NBA. Things are still far from normal in New York.
Overpowering and dominant in a way not seen since the 1992 Dream Team, the Americans are now two wins from a second straight Olympic gold medal. Argentina awaits.
Like everyone red blooded American, I would have loved to see the Heat lose in the Finals to the Oklahoma City Thunder. With that being said, part of me is happy because this asinine LeBron James narrative can finally be put away.
The decision is final: LeBron James made the right call coming to Miami. Finally an NBA champion, it’s all worth it now.
As much as the Heat have outplayed the Thunder in this series, the margin has been extremely small. A few plays here and there and the Thunder could easily be the team up 3-1. If Oklahoma City can do a few things differently, they can still win this series.
LeBron James returned from a left leg injury to make the tiebreaking 3-pointer with 2:54 remaining and the Miami Heat held off Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder for a 104-98 victory on Tuesday night and a 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals.
There are real things Knicks fans should worry about. So don’t panic over something that a petulant Jackson said to HBO.
It has been the Heat’s ability to slow down the Thunder offense that has been the difference so far in the series.
The Heat have been here before, two wins from an NBA title. The difference now? LeBron James isn’t letting his head get in the way of his talent.
With two games of the NBA Finals in the books, here are some of my thoughts on the current state of the series and beyond as this star-studded quest for the title continues on Sunday evening.
LeBron James asked for help, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh provided it. The Miami Heat finally rediscovered the formula to winning in the NBA Finals — barely.
