What happened at Madison Square Garden on Sunday only prolonged the inevitable for the Knicks. New York found a way to win a playoff game to end their NBA record postseason losing streak (13), but proved to be no match for the Miami Heat in Game 5 Wednesday night.

As it did in four of the five games in the series, Miami thoroughly outplayed Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks, putting the final nail in the coffin at AmericanAirlines Areana, 106-94, to take the series 4-1.

Lebron James put in 29 points and eight boards, Dwyane Wade scored 19, and Chris Bosh had 19 with seven rebounds. Mike Miller hit three of his five 3-point attempts for nine points.

Carmelo Anthony led all scorers with 35 points (15 of 31 shooting). Amar’e Stoudemire had 14 points, but his play was limited in the second half due to foul trouble. He eventually fouled out in the fourth.

New York also got a dozen each from Landry Fields and J.R. Smith – Smith shot 3 of 15 in each of the last two games of the series (20%).

Mike Bibby got the start for the injured Baron Davis, playing 35 minutes with ten points, six boards and six assists.


Note: It was reported this week that interim Knicks coach Mike Woodson has begun contract discussions with team brass, a report Woodson later denied.
