Series Notes:

- The HEAT and Knicks meet for the second consecutive matchup after just playing in New York on Sunday with Miami recording a, 109-103, win.

- Last season, the teams split the season series, 1-1, as Miami has now won five of the last six contests overall.

- The HEAT are 60-65 all-time versus New York during the regular season, including 33-28 in home games and 27-37 in road games.

What to watch for:

- Avery Bradley (Right Calf; Strain), Goran Dragic (Left Ankle; Sprain), Moe Harkless (Left Thigh; Contusion), Meyers Leonard (Left Shoulder; Surgery) and Chris Silva (Left Hip Flexor; Strain) are all out. Gabe Vincent (Right Knee; Soreness) is probable. 

- The HEAT have used 16 different starting line-ups in their 23 games this season, as 14 of Miami’s 17 players have started at least one game, with only Haslem, Silva and Strus yet to record a start.

- The 15 games in February tie the most for any February in team history when Miami also played 15 games in the month in 1998.

- Bam Adebayo shot a perfect 11-of-11 from the foul line in the first quarter vs. WAS on 2/5, marking as the only player in the NBA to be perfect from the charity stripe with at least 10 attempts in a first quarter over the last 20+ seasons (since play-by-plays were kept as a stat in 1996-97).
