MIAMI -- Another Knicks-Heat game, another 20-point Knicks win

MIAMI -- Another Knicks-Heat game, another 20-point Knicks win. babyliss pro perfect curl . And if that isnt surprising enough, this one happened with Carmelo Anthony on the sideline. Raymond Felton scored a season-high 27 points, and the Knicks connected on 18 3-pointers to more than offset the absence of Anthony while dominating Miami for the second time this season, beating the Heat 112-92 on Thursday night. "It was fun. It was fun the whole game," Felton said. "Everybody contributed tonight. Everybody did something amazing. We played a great game minus our superstar." Steve Novak scored 18 points, J.R. Smith added 13 and Tyson Chandler scored 13 for the Knicks, who won their fifth straight and moved 1 1/2 games clear of Miami for the best record in the Eastern Conference. The Knicks made eight 3-pointers in the third quarter alone, the most by any NBA team in any quarter so far this season. Anthony sat out, one night after needing five stitches to close a cut on the middle finger of his left hand. "Youve got a key guy that goes down and the other guys get an opportunity to play and step up and make plays," Knicks coach Mike Woodson said. "I thought it was a total team effort from everybody across the board. I thought our defence was solid and then we kind of broke it open at the end." LeBron James nearly picked up his second straight triple-double -- 31 points, 10 rebounds, nine assists -- in Miamis second straight loss, the first of those coming on the road against lowly Washington on Tuesday. Dwyane Wade scored 13 points, Chris Bosh had 12 and Udonis Haslem added 10 for the Heat, who fell to 8-1 at home. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra devoted most of his postgame remarks to the theme that Miami has to "own" its shortcomings right now, and how they would be addressed starting in practice on Friday. "Well stay connected," Spoelstra said. "Were going to own this. Were not going to brush this off. And were going to fix it." James -- who said the Knicks "smashed" the Heat -- didnt wait that long. The leagues reigning MVP worked out immediately after the game, sweating at his locker more than an hour after the final buzzer. "Ive got to be better. Ive got to be better," James said. "Its that simple. So Im here, and Im the last one to leave." Rasheed Wallace scored 12 and Jason Kidd added 11 points for the Knicks, who finished 18 for 44 from 3-point range. It was tied at 53 at the half, and the third quarter changed everything for the Knicks. Kidd made a 3-pointer, Felton followed with consecutive 3s and New York was up by nine with 9:42 left in the period and the Heat seemed stunned. New York was only getting started. In all, it was an eight-3-pointers-in-eight-minutes barrage that decided this one, with five different players getting in on the act for the Knicks. Smith hit the last of them with 3:25 left in the third, and a pair of free throws by Chandler moments later gave New York -- again, without its best player -- an 18-point lead on the road against the reigning NBA champions. Now losers of two straight, and having been beaten badly twice by the Knicks, the Heat know the outside "noise" -- their word for the buzz that always seems to surround Miami -- will start ramping up again. "Its a little earlier than expected, but we knew there were going to be different challenges this year," Bosh said. "Controversy, adversity, whatever ersity you want to use. Were smart. Were not joking ourselves. Were here." There was one run late in the third, a 13-3 burst by Miami that got the Heat within eight in the final seconds of the quarter. It was the last -- and really, the only -- gasp for Miami, as the Knicks just kept firing away in the fourth. "We understood it was a 10-point game and we had to make our move," Novak said. "Weve got a few stops and hit a bunch of shots. That was really the key for us -- hitting those shots and being aggressive." Felton finished 10 for 20 from the floor, adding seven assists and four rebounds. He was 6 for 10 from beyond the arc, Novak was 4 for 9, while Smith and Kidd were each 3 for 8 from long range. Miami had two field goals in the first seven minutes of the final quarter, and when New York decided to put it away, it was with 3-pointers, of course. Novak made one for a 100-84 lead, another to stretch the margin to 19 and then Chandler got all alone for a dunk to push the lead to 109-88 and send most of the buildings occupants to the exits. Smith hit a 3-pointer with 3:04 left to play, gestured toward the Heat bench, and the benches were cleared for subs moments later. "Well be fine. Well be fine," James said. "But we cant act like what happened tonight or in Washington or some of the games that we even won that we probably shouldnt have won, we cant act like, OK, we made those things happen. We havent played like were capable of playing." NOTES: Haslem started and made his first five shots, his first 10-point first half since March 2010. ... Anthony warmed up before the game, but seemed to have trouble catching passes. ... It was Miamis first home loss since Game 5 of last seasons Eastern Conference finals. ... Miami had 14 turnovers, twice as many as the Knicks. babyliss pro perfect curl uk . The Maple Leafs brought Blacker up on Monday, but he did not play in any games. In 53 games with the Marlies this season, the six-foot-two, 190-pound defenceman has 10 points (three goals, seven assists) and 31 minutes in penalties. babyliss perfect curl . Seppi is up to a career-high ranking of No. 18 after reaching the fourth round of the Australian Open, and he relied on his solid form to overcome the persistent Dodig, who is ranked 59th.Got a question on rule clarification, comments on rule enforcements or some memorable NHL stories? Kerry Fraser wants to answer your emails at cmonref@tsn.ca! Kerry, Ill keep it short and sweet, Im just wondering what the rules are with regards to high sticking. In the Hawks/Kings game Monday night, Mike Richards was controlling the puck before turning and taking a shot; on the follow through his stick hit Viktor Stalbergs face, immediately shooting the referees hand in the air. Is there any amount of referee discretion on these calls? My understanding was that inadvertent contact on a follow through wasnt counted as a high stick, and to make it even worse, Stalberg was cut on the play giving Richards four minutes in the box for something I didnt consider to be a penalty! Cheers,PeteNewfoundland Hey Kerry, So, last night in the Blackhawks/Kings game Mike Richards was assessed a double minor for high-sticking that drew blood. My confusion comes from the fact that the high stick occurred on a follow through from an attempted shot. Now, it was explained to me that if its a wild swing at a bouncing puck that would be a penalty and not be protected under the "follow through" rule. After looking at it a couple of times it appears that Richards was shooting, even though the puck jumped his stick and probably shouldnt have been penalized. Did the refs get this one wrong? Thanks Kerry. Keep it up!Ryan Morrill Pete and Ryan: You get a two for one question and answer today courtesy of my friend Pierre McGuire and the good folks at NBC Sports Network for supplying us with this clip (video link) of the play. I answered Trevors alternate question (below) while I waited for the clip. Rule 60.1 is clear when it states that players must be in control of their sticks however, a player is permitted accidental contact on an opponent if the act is committed as a normal windup or follow through of a shooting motion. A wild swing at a bouncing puck would not be considered a normal windup or follow through and any contact to an opponent above the height of the shoulders shall be penalized accordingly. The second part of that rule is what the officials interpreted and deemed to have taken place when Mike Richards turned with the puck on his stick and attempted to make a shot with his head up and eyes focused on the net.  At that moment the puck became unsettled and hopped up and over the blade of Richards stick. The normal follow through of Richards shooting motion contacted Victor Stalberg in the face resulting in an injury. Since the shot was not executed by Richards and the puck was in the air the Official must have deemed it to be a "wild swing" at a bouncing puck as opposed to the puck jumping off the blade of Mike Richards stick while in the act of shooting. It would have also looked bad from their perspective that Mike Richards regained puck posssession and had a second chance to trigger the shot with Stalberg laying prone on the ice holding his face. babyliss pro curl. The language and intent of the rule is not designed to penalize a player who accidentally misfired on a shot but as the rule states for "a wild swing at a bouncing puck." While I can appreciate the Officials perspective on the play no penalty was warranted on Mike Richards normal follow through of his shooting motion. Hi Kerry, First off I really enjoy your column! A rule clarification question. I am watching the Leafs-Bruins game and there was a scrum after the whistle when Marchand clearly took a shot after the whistle, a player from each team went off but Marchand didnt receive a penalty for the obvious unsportsmanlike play.  I dont know that I have ever seen it called but I believe there is a rule on this play. Can you clarify this for me? Thanks! Trevor Humphries Trevor: When a player shoots the puck well after the whistle he is subject to an unsportsmanlike conduct minor penalty or misconduct for attempting to incite an opponent into incurring a penalty. Typically the minor penalty should be assessed first followed by the misconduct if he persists. (Rule 75.4) Shooting the puck after the whistle falls into the same category as snowing the goalkeeper or a face wash in a scrum and would have to be deemed deliberate (well after the whistle) before a penalty is assessed. Last night in Boston with the score tied and less than seven minutes remaining in regulation time Brad Marchand carried the puck over the Leafs blue line. Just prior to the whistle blowing for the offside Marchand had shifted his weight in a shooting posture and pulled the puck back for a shot. The whistle blew for the offside and Marchand completed his intended shot. It would be determined by the Referees that Marchand was in the act of shooting the puck and therefore not deserving of a penalty. The fact that Brad Marchand is thought of as an agitator by opponents around the League and shot the puck after the whistle blew drew a crowd of Leafs led by Captain Dion Phaneuf. As the scrum developed Andrew Ference of the Bruins and Phaneuf became the major participants in the dustup and were assessed coincidental roughing minors. Prior to the implementation of the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty I have assessed 10 minute misconducts to players that deliberately shot the puck after the whistle. On occasion it was at an opposing skater and not at the goalkeeper. On another such incident in the late 80s I assessed a misconduct penalty to a player that turned his body 90 degrees toward the opposing teams bench and fired a slap shot at a mouthy coach.  The coach bailed and the puck hit the protective glass behind the players bench without doing any damage. The linesmen rushed the shooter into the penalty bench before the cavalry mounted an attack! John Elway Jersey Russell Wilson Jersey Johnny Unitas Jersey Cam Newton Jersey Colin Kaepernick Jersey Marshawn Lynch Jersey Peyton Manning Jersey Jamaal Charles JerseyCheap NFL Jerseys Steven Hauschka Jersey Doug Baldwin Jersey ' ' '
