Jimmy Butler scores 35, Heat hold off Knicks 127-120


The heat improved their shot at a top 6 finish in the east by outlasting the Knicks one 27 one 20. Jimmy Butler had a game high 35 points as Miami pulled within percentage points of the nets for the final guaranteed playoff slot in the east. We kind of have to win to be where we want to be. But I like it like that, you know, playoff game every possession matters. Tyler hero scored 14 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter for the heat, who squandered an 11 point lead in the second half before regaining control with a 16 two run midway through the fourth quarter. I'm Dave ferry.
