Miami picked up a nice win against the Knicks at the Garden on Sunday despite Melo going off for 43 points. The Heat weathered that storm and gave a glimpse of the playoff-ready team they need to be as they were able to close out a game on the road. But their play on the road may be a concern in the playoffs: 13 of Miami's 17 losses have come in away games. Then there's that whole thing about LeBron lacking a clutch gene. #kingproblemsJose Martinez
