The Miami Heat were able to extend their lead on the New York Knicks in the third quarter, and the Knicks are just barely in the game. The big three all came up big in the third quarter while the Knicks turned the ball over three more times and continued to struggle shooting the ball. With one quarter to go, the Heat lead 80-66.
Miami outscored New York 29-19 in the third quarter and it felt even worse than that. Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and LeBron James now have a combined 53 points on the night, with nearly half of those accrued in the third quarter. Jeremy Lin did well to get to the free throw line on a couple off occasions in the third, but still has just eight points, four rebounds and three assists to go with his seven turnovers.
