Thought the playoffs would be sold out at AmericanAirlines Arena and you couldn't get a ticket? Think again. Tickets are available for Game 2 on Monday, so grab your canoe and paddle on down to AmericanAirlines Arena while they're still available.
Always the concern after a lopsided win is the letdown game that follows. The Heat will try to avoid that tonight in Game 2 against the Knicks.
"We haven't done anything yet," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "And you have to always keep that perspective that we haven't even held serve. We started off the first game of the series on the right note but that doesn't guarantee or insure anything for tonight's game and we have to absolutely expect the level of force and concentration and energy that they'll be bringing tonight."
The series shifts to New York for Games 3 and 4.
"We know that they're just trying to steal one tonight here on our home court and we have to defend that ferociously," Spoelstra said.

SCOUTING REPORT: The Heat’s margin of victory in Game 1 was two points shy of a postseason franchise record. For the Knicks, its 67 points in Game 1 tied a franchise record for its lowest point total in a postseason game. Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony posted the only double-double of game but his 11 points was 31 points fewer than his total in New York’s final game against Miami in the regular season. Knicks point guard Toney Douglas (flu) is questionable but could start in place of Iman Shumpert, who tore his anterior-cruciate ligament in Game 1 and is out for the playoffs. Knicks center Tyson Chandler (flu) is questionable despite playing in Game 1 with his illness.
