The Miami Heat pay a visit to the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden on Friday night. Here’s a Heat vs Knicks Prediction.

Miami Heat

The Miami Heat have been in great shape as they've won nine of their last 10 games overall and they will be aiming for a third straight victory after blowing past the shorthanded Cavaliers in a 129-96 road win on Wednesday. Kyle Lowry drained seven 3-pointers to lead the way with 28 points, Jaime Jacquez Jr. added 22 points off the bench while Caleb Martin and Josh Robinson scored 14 points apiece. As a team, the Heat shot 52 percent from the field and a sizzling 20 of 35 from the 3-point line as they set the tone with 37 points in the first quarter to jump out to an early double-digit lead that only grew as the game went on. The Heat had the game locked up by the third quarter which allowed them to rest all their starters early.

New York Knicks

Meanwhile, the New York Knicks have also been on a nice run as they've won six of their last eight games, but they will be hoping to bounce back here after having their three-game win streak halted by the Timberwolves in a 117-100 road loss on Monday. Jalen Brunson led the team with 25 points and six assists, Julius Randle added 21 points with 14 rebounds while Immanuel Quickley chipped in with 15 points off the bench. As a team, the Knicks shot just 34 percent from the field and nine of 38 from the 3-point line as they kept pace with the Timberwolves in a tightly contested first half, only to let it all slip in the third quarter where they got outscored by 35-19 to trail by as many as 22 points.

Peter's Pick

The Heat could be shorthanded in this one with Duncan Robinson and Bam Adebayo both listed as questionable, while the Knicks should have Evan Fournier back on the court after some time off. The Heat come into this meeting as the team in better form and they looked dominant in their big win over the Cavaliers on Wednesday, but they're a little banged up here, so it's the Knicks who have the advantage of a full squad. This is definitely a game where you want to check the lineups before tipoff, but assuming that Adebayo sits out, I'll roll with the Knicks to take advantage at home in this spot.
