Miami Heat vs New York Knicks Game 3 Pick, Prediction, and Odds
Well folks, it looks like we may have some serious trouble brewing in New York City. The New York Knicks had high hopes that they would be able to compete with the second seed in the Eastern Conference in the Miami Heat when this 2012 NBA Playoff series began, but so far through two games they haven't even been able to put even the slightest scare on the Heat. Miami has come out and absolutely looked dominant against this Knicks team by winning the first game of the series by 33, and the next game by 10 (and it probably wasn't even that close to be honest). The Knicks are going to need some help, and unfortunately it most likely won't be coming from one of their All-Stars in Amare Stoudemire.

Stoudemire is the talk of the town right now, but it's not for a good reason. After their Game 2 loss to the Heat, he apparently punched right through the glass of a fire extinguisher case, which led to paramedics being called and having to come in to stitch up his hand in order to stop the bleeding from a huge gash that it had created. No one knows what left him so fired up, but unless his fire can be pushed onto his teammates and they are able to pull off a huge Game 3, we could potentially be looking at an opening round sweep in this year's playoffs. While Carmelo Anthony put up big numbers in Game 2, they weren't enough to compete with the likes of Lebron James, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Bosh in this one, so the Heat now lead 2-0 and head into their Game 3 match-up on Thursday May 3rd. Tip off is set for 7:00pm EST, and the game will be televised on TNT.

The Knicks are simply going to need a savior. I do like the fact that they are heading back to Madison Square Garden where their crowd is going to be ready to go to work for them, but they will still be in for a battle. In my opinion, even though they Knicks have gotten taken down in both of the first two games pretty hard, I still like New York to get one game on their home floor in large part because of Carmelo Anthony. I think that Anthony and Tyson Chandler are going to be huge in this match-up, and while the Heat are going to be pretty heavy favorites going into the game, I like New York to pull the upset in Game 3 and potentially give themselves a slight bit of hope going into a Game 4 which once again will be played in New York.

I think that the Heat will be favored by a good amount here, and I'll stay safe with picking the Knicks with the points more than likely. But you should be able to get some good odds to bet on the Knicks on the money line as well, and I think that if they are going to get a win in this series then it'll be in Game 3. Look for the point spread to come out soon and I'll be all over that when it is released.
Pick: New York Knicks +185
