RJ Barrett understands the Knicks’ need to respond, just like the Heat did in Tuesday’s 111-105 Game 2 loss.
“They’re at home and they just lost, and they’re losing a couple of days, so I expected them to play that way,” said Barrett, who hit 14 points on 5-of-16 shooting in 25 minutes of Game 3. Sometimes it happens. It happens in the playoffs. … It’s not the end of the world. I just need to understand the intensity of this matchup and bring it to the next game”.
