New York Knicks' Anthony grimaces as he leaves the court after injuring himself when falling at midcourt during the second quarter of their NBA basketball game against the Cleveland CavaliersFor the second time in one week the New York Knicks lose to the Miami Heat. They Knicks were competitive in the first half exchanging the lead 13 times with the Miami Heat.

The main problem for the Knicks this game was that they struggled heavily in the second half. They were outscored 24-14 in the third quarter, and Carmelo Anthony was held scoreless in the second half.  Rookie Porzingis and Anthony were held to a combined 22 points on 39 percent shooting.

I just couldn’t find it in the second half for whatever reason.”It was tough as the Knicks only had three players score in double figures. Gerald Green had a huge game on both sides of the ball. Green had a season high 25 points on 8 of 14 shooting.

Offense for me is going to come easy,” Green said. “Some days I’m going to hit shots, some days I’m not, but what I do have to do, which is a requirement to wear this jersey, is to go out there and keep playing defense and that’s what I’m going to do.”

Chris Bosh had 20 points and Dwayne Wade had 17 points in 29 minutes of action.  Next for the Heat will be a match up with Boston Monday night. For the Knicks they will look to get back to there winning ways Sunday when they host Houston.
