    Comeback Attempt Falls Short for Heat

    The Miami Heat tried to fight back for a win on Friday night, but fell short in their 122-120 loss to the New York Knicks.

    Miami trailed by 15 going into half time and it seemed like the game was a lost cause at that point. New York was dominating the game on both sides of the ball, while the Heat looked lackadaisical at times.

    In the second half, it was a different story however as Miami won the half by 13. The Heat were strong in both of the final quarters, and it was clear they made some changes to their mindset at halftime. Unfortunately for Miami, the deficit proved to be too much however.

    The Heat had the ball with a second left in regulation, but turned it over on a bad pass to clinch the win for the Knicks. Kevin Love was charged with that turnover, his only blemish in the contest. Love put together nine points and eight rebounds before that, while posting a strong 3-6 mark on field goals.

    Jimmy Butler led the team with 33 points, including a robust 18 free throws made. Tyler Herro contributed 29 points of his own, to go along with eight rebounds and six assists. Herro was 5-8 on his three-point tries and picked up a steal along the way as well.

    Miami will look to bounce back fast when it hosts the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday evening at Miami-Dade Arena.
