Miami Heat tied a franchise record with their 14th straight victory, rallying to beat the New York Knicks 99-93 on Sunday.
In a weekend filled with the NBA’s greatest players, Jordan was the topic no one could stop talking about.
LeBron James had 24 points, nine rebounds and seven assists, and the Miami Heat blew out Brooklyn in the second half for a 105-85 victory Wednesday night, their 13th in a row over the Nets.
Maybe Knicks owner James Dolan should pack up those high-tech microphones and send a crew to Houston.
Another Knicks-Heat game, another 20-point Knicks win. And if that isn’t surprising enough, this one happened with Carmelo Anthony on the sideline.
The Nets were 10 for 31 from the field in the second half and lost to Miami for the 12th straight time.
The Knicks’ hot start on the court is paying dividends for the franchise’s merchandise sector. The league released its latest sales-rankings list on Wednesday, with the Knicks leading the team-sales category for the first time since December 2004.
Dwyane Wade scored 22 points on 10 for 14 shooting, LeBron James finished two assists shy of a triple-double and the Miami Heat improved to 4-0 at home for the first time in franchise history by beating the Brooklyn Nets 103-73 on Wednesday night.
“This team is different,” center Brook Lopez said. “You can see it in the reactions of the guys in here already. This team will respond.”
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.
