Preview

The New York Knicks continue on the road and will visit the Miami Heat on Friday night. This is the third time these teams face off this season, Miami has won the last 2 games.

NEW YORK KNICKS

The Knicks have won 3 of their last 5 games and are 16-21 on the road this season. They have a 31-42 overall record ranking 5th in the Atlantic division. The Knicks have gone 16-27 against Eastern Conference opponents. 

Randle is averaging 20.3 points, 10 rebounds and 5.1 assists for the Knicks. Barrett is averaging 25.1 points over the last 10 games for New York.

In their last 10 games the Knicks are 6-4, averaging 112.8 points, 47.8 rebounds, 22.7 assists, 7.2 steals and 4.5 blocks per game while shooting 45.2% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 103.9 points.

MIAMI HEAT 

The Heat have lost 3 of their last 5 games and are 26-10 at home, they have a 47-26 record overall ranking first in the Southeast. Miami are 30-14 in Eastern Conference games.

Kyle Lowry is averaging 13.1 points and 7.7 assists for the Heat. Butler is averaging 21.2 points, six rebounds, 5.5 assists and 1.7 steals over the past 10 games for Miami.

In their last 10 games the Heat are 6-4, averaging 108.1 points, 41.4 rebounds, 24.5 assists, 6.1 steals and 3.1 blocks per game while shooting 46.2% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 106.1 points per game.

INJURIES: Butler, Herro, Robinson, Tucker and Martin are questionable.

BETTING TRENDS

New York are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games.

New York are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games on the road.

Miami are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games.

Miami are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games at home.

Prediction

Miami has 5 of their best players questionable so there's a chance that they could be shorthanded for this game. Randle has missed the past two games but could return Friday but with the Knicks out of the playoff picture he could be on minutes limit. With that being said I think the under is the play on this one. In the last 10 head to head the average score is 99.7-109.60 favoring the Heat.

PICK: Under 215.5 (-110)
