Miami Heat vs New York Knicks prediction

The Miami Heat are settling in Terry Rozier and Jaime Jaquez has been cleared to return, so a turnaround is coming sooner than later. However, the Heat have to show me something before I can back them on the road against good teams. The New York Knicks have been great since adding OG Anunoby, and they’ve covered 7 of their last 10 games. I’m not excited to step in front of the Knicks, especially at home, and the Heat have a lot of improving they need to do. Give me the Knicks.
