MIAMI -- Its been a long time since the New York Knicks were in this position. http://www.dolphinsrookiestore.com/Dolphins-Charles-Harris-Jersey/ .More than three years, to be precise.Carmelo Anthony matched a season high with 35 points, and the Knicks took advantage of second chances all night to beat the injury-ravaged Miami Heat 114-103 on Tuesday night. At 12-9, New York is three games over .500 for the first time since the end of the 2012-13 season.Any time you can put together some wins you feel confident, you feel comfortable, you feel like youre heading in the right direction, and I really feel were doing that, Anthony said. Were heading in the right direction.Kristaps Porzingis had 14 points and 12 rebounds for New York, which has won four straight. The Knicks lost Derrick Rose to back spasms in the third quarter, but still scored 61 points after halftime.We just came out in the second half knowing that we have to win the game and that we have to play better, Porzingis said.Goran Dragic scored 29 points and Hassan Whiteside finished with 23 points and 14 rebounds for the Heat, who fell to 2-8 at home. New York had a 31-13 edge in second-chance points, and outscored Miami 56-36 in the paint.Sometimes the ball goes that way, Whiteside said.The teams were tied at 68 late in the third quarter, when the Knicks went on a 27-13 run over the next eight minutes to take control. Anthony finished 13 for 27 from the field, and Porzingis and Joakim Noah combined for 22 rebounds.The Heat had nine players, and might not have any more than that until next week. Justise Winslow missed his 12th consecutive game with a sore left wrist, and James Johnson (right rotator cuff), Dion Waiters (groin), Luke Babbitt (right hip) and Josh Richardson (right ankle) were also sidelined.None are slated to travel for Miamis three-game, four-day stretch that starts Wednesday in Atlanta. The Heat are leaving some staff in Miami to work with the injured players.Theyre getting way more work in than they would get on the road, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said.TIP-INSKnicks: Coach Jeff Hornacek is now 1-5 against Miami. Hes beaten every team hes faced, and has yet to coach against his former Phoenix club. ... The Knicks missed their first 11 3-point tries, then made 7 of their last 14. ... New York is over .500 this late in a season for the third time in 12 years. ... Not a good sign for Wednesday, when Cleveland visits the Knicks: New York is 0-4 on the second night of back-to-backs this season.Heat: It was Dragics highest-scoring total as a member of the Heat. ... Whiteside has led the Heat in rebounds in all 21 games this season. ... Miami struggled again from the line, shooting 16 for 27.ON PHILSpoelstra was asked to respond to Knicks President Phil Jacksons comments last month about the way the Heat had to handle LeBron James when he played in Miami. Spoelstra laughed it off. I honestly just think he gets bored and likes to throw stuff out there to get everybody all fired up, Spoelstra said. James and the Cavaliers visit Madison Square Garden on Wednesday.TALL ORDERHilarity briefly ensued in the second quarter when the 7-foot-3 Porzingis had a jump ball against Miamis Tyler Johnson, who might be generously listed at 6-foot-4. Shocking: Porzingis won the tap.UP NEXTKnicks: Host Cleveland on Wednesday, preceding a five-game West Coast trip.Heat: Visit Atlanta on Wednesday, followed by visits to Cleveland and Chicago. http://www.dolphinsrookiestore.com/Dolphins-Nate-Allen-Jersey/ .C. -- Chris Thorburn thinks one of the reasons the Winnipeg Jets have been successful under new coach Paul Maurice is that theyre playing together as a team. http://www.dolphinsrookiestore.com/Dolphins-Kenny-Stills-Jersey/ . Having already announced that the race will start May 9 with three stages in Northern Ireland and Ireland and finish in Trieste on June 1, the rest of the route was unveiled Monday. http://www.dolphinsrookiestore.com/Dolphins-Cameron-Wake-Jersey/ . The 29-year-old from Port Colborne, Ont., has nothing but good things to say about former U.S. marine Liz (Girlrilla) Carmouche ahead of their co-main event Wednesday on the UFCs "Fight for the Troops" televised card in Fort Campbell, Ky. ATLANTA -- The Atlanta Braves may not be finished with the dramatic overhaul of their rotation.General manager John Coppolella told The Associated Press on Wednesday he hopes to add another starting pitcher, even after agreeing to deals with veteran right-handers R.A. Dickey and Bartolo Colon last week.Chicago White Sox ace left-hander Chris Sale might be available in a trade. The Braves apparently would make top prospects available for Sale, an All-Star in each of the last five seasons who could be a trade target of many teams.The Braves have focused on young pitchers while trading such stars as Jason Heyward, Andrelton Simmons, Justin Upton, Evan Gattis and Craig Kimbrel in recent years. Coppolella said hes considering all options, including a trade involving prospects, in his search for another starter.We would like to add another starter if possible, but that will be more a function of market factors than any other factor, Coppolella said in a text message.Sale, 27, would be the new top name for a rotation that includes Julio Teheran, Mike Foltynewicz and Josh Collmenter as the team moves into new SunTrust Park in suburban Cobb County next year.Sale was 17-10 with a 3.34 ERA for the White Sox in 2016. He will earn $12 million in 2017. His contract includes club options at $12.5 million for 2018 and $15 million for 2019.Dicckey, 42, and Colon, 43, are short-term links to such young starters as Sean Newcomb, Kolby Allard, Max Fried and Touki Toussaint. http://www.dolphinsrookiestore.com/Dolphins-Kiko-Alonso-Jersey/. Some other young starters, including Matt Wisler, Aaron Blair and Tyrell Jenkins, already have made their Atlanta debuts.The Braves one-year, $12.5 million deal with Colon and one-year contract with an $8 million guarantee with Dickey wont be official until the players pass physicals.The deal with Dickey, the first of the 158 free agents to switch teams this offseason, was reached last Thursday. The agreement with Colon came one day later.Sale has five straight seasons with double-digit wins. The Braves had no starter with as many as 10 wins last season. The hard-throwing Foltynewicz led the team with a 9-5 record.Teheran, a two-time All-Star, is the leader of the rotation. The search for other proven starters has been the top offseason priority for Coppolella.The Braves finished last in the NL East in 2016 but won 50 of their last 97 games, leading Coppolella to say the rebuilding effort was ahead of schedule. The promotion of rookie shortstop Dansby Swanson helped the team win 20 of its last 30 games, earning interim manager Brian Snitker the full-time job.
