NYK beat Miami for fourth win in five games
Playing for the fourth time in five games the Knickerbockers played the role of stalking horse against a lesser team (rather than the other way around). They overtook the dreadful Miami Heat late in the fourth quarter thanks largely to Nate Robinson's shot-making, Jamal Crawford's free-throw shooting and David Lee's ability to front Shaq.
I was going to add JJ's defense of Wade to that short list but really Wade is a shell of himself. He is so clearly injured that it is impressive and short-sighted that he hasn't shut it down. Each step is seemingly an ordeal.
