With Jeremy not able to play in game 5, the Miami Heat beat the Knicks 106-94, closing out the Melo led Knicks 4 games to 1. This was a very predictable end to this series without JLin. Also, very predictable is the New York media trying to call out Jeremy for not playing. He wasn't even cleared by the doctors and he is making the league minimum. Why in the world would anyone try to come back at 85%, early from knee surgery, without a contract? Also, your team would still be a heavy underdog going up against the team favored to win the NBA Championship?
