Maybe the Knicks were on to something during their weird offseason. Letting Jeremy Lin go might have made the fan base less-than-thrilled, but it hasn't seemed to have affected the Knicks all that much -- they're on top of the Eastern Conference and enjoyed a decisive victory over the Miami Heat. The best part? They beat the Heat even without Carmelo Anthony, hitting 18 three-pointers in the process. It's still early in the season, but it looks like everyone who wrote off the Knicks might have some apologies to make.
The Knicks haven't been to a championship in years, but that all could change if they keep up their hot start.
A playoff preview?
New York's offense is nearly as good as Miami's, but the Knicks are giving up almost six fewer points per game.
Heat's losing streak?
The Heat still are expected to make the playoffs, but back-to-back losses to the Wizards and Knicks can't feel good.
