The Knicks make a crazy comeback from -21 against the Heat…

With qualification for the In-Season tournament finals at stake, the game at Madison Square Garden was heated before it even began.

However, the Heat had nearly cooled everyone off after a balanced first half (51-50) with three-pointers from Kyle Lowry, Jimmy Butler, and Haywood Highsmith, as well as Josh Richardson’s finishing touches, leading to a +21 advantage (62-83). Two 3-pointers from Immanuel Quickley and Donte DiVincenzo reignited the Knicks for a long pursuit.

Jalen Brunson scored the basket that proved to be the game-winner, as the last shot belonged to Jimmy Butler, whose three-pointer bounced off the rim.

New York – Miami 100-98. Boxscore: 24 Brunson, 20 Quickley, 18 Barrett, 13 Randle, 10 Hart for the Knicks (9-6); 23 Butler, 21p+12r Adebayo, 15 Jaquez, and Richardson, 10 Lowry for the Heat (10-6).
