It was not a good game one for the New York Knicks.  The opened up their playoff series against the Miami Heat Saturday, and it proved they have a lot of work to do.

A crushing defeat.  That is how you would describe Saturday's game one between the Knicks and Heat.  Miami played great defense, and held the Knicks to just 67 points, in a 100-67 win.  In the second quarter NY only put up 13, and 16 in the third.

Steve Novak was the Knicks leading scorer with 17 points, but with Carmelo Anthony only putting up 11, and Amare Stoudemire with just 9, Novak's 17 didn't even make a dent.  Baron Davis struggled as well, only 10 points for him.  In total, NY turned the ball over 24 times.  Here we go again.

In the meantime, Lebron James was busy putting up 32 points and Dwyane Wade had 19.  The two of them together, had almost as many points as the entire Knick team. Game two is Monday from Miami, and the Knicks will need to do some work Sunday in order to avoid another slaughter.
