Still, this is a better team without Smith's lethargic play/attitude.

Wow what a finish. The defense in the last 3 mins won that game.

13-4 overall and no turnovers in the 4th quarter.

Knicks are legit.

This one was close, but it's great to see them beat teams they are supposed to.

Only teams in the East that can challenge Miami are Knicks & Nets. Although the Nets are 0-2 against them.

The East sucks.

Found a way to win even with a horrid second half from Melo and a bad game by our best bench scorer. Hope everybody is ready to ball tomorrow, would be a huge win.

Miami has been gifted an easy schedule. Look at who the league scheduled for their opponents on the 2nd night of B2B's, and look who the Knicks get.

Miami has played like crap the last handful of games, but they've been closing them out.

If the Knicks win in Miami, fire up that bandwagon

NBA loves Miami. They've gotten a lot of teams at the end of back to backs already.

Don't expect calls tomorrow. Especially if Joey Crawford/Salvador/the ex Pacer (forget his name) is reffing.

Anyone saying **** Novak isn't a Knicks fan.

Apparently Novak can't be criticized.

I call it the 'Ryan Callahan effect'.

Can't play defense, one-dimensional offensive player, basically a journeyman who's been lucky his first dozen games and fans think he's good and all. Disgusting contract.

As much as I love Novak he plays no defense. He actually hurts our team. Iman should take his minutes if anyone's.

I won't even touch on your misguided hatred of Ryan Callahan.

Lucky for his first dozen games? By that do you mean shoot a historically good percent from behind the arc for about 60 games, and continue to do that this year after a slow start?

Yeah he doesn't play defense...but to say he hurts our team is simply wrong.

Novak 2012 FG% -- .478
Novak 2013 FG% -- .409

Novak 2012 3-pt % -- .472
Novak 2012 3-pt % -- .426

Sorry, but the guy isn't playing well. He deserves credit for filling in admirably after Kidd was hurt but he's just not hitting shots the way he used to.

And aside from 3-point shooting, what's Novak's other "dimension"? Is he a good cook? Does he tell parlor jokes to keep the team loose?
