Miami Heat vs New York Knicks 2/7/2021 Betting Odds
Miami Heat Betting
The Miami Heat were able to avoid getting into a losing streak with a win over the Washington Wizards during their last game. It was their second win in four games and that is a far improvement since they were coming from a five-game losing streak before that. Kendrick Nunn came off the bench to lead the team in scoring with 25 points along with eight assists and two steals. Bam Adebayo went perfect from the free-throw line shooting 11-of-11 and finished with 21 points. This team is getting their lineup healthier after every game but they have a big hole to come out from as their record now stands at 8-14.

New York Knicks Betting
The New York Knicks have been very inconsistent during the entire season but they are on their good side winning two consecutive games. The first victory came from the Chicago Bulls then they prevailed over the Portland Trail Blazers by 11 points. Julius Randle played great giving the team 22 points and 11 rebounds and Elfrid Payton also had 22 of his own. RJ Barrett chipped in with 18 points, seven rebounds and four assists. Help is coming as there is already a trade brewing between them and the Detroit Pistons that will reunite Derrick Rose with his former Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau.
