08:07 AM ET 03.04 | In the eyes of Knicks coach Mike Woodson, J.R. Smith shouldn't be launching 3-pointers if they're not going in. The Knicks coach did not like the fact that although Smith struggled from deep in yesterday's 99-93 loss to the Heat, he still heaved up 14 shots from behind the arc. Smith shot a woeful 5-for-18 from the field but an even more pitiful 3-for-14 from 3-point range, prompting Woodson to say that the shot selection was unacceptable and he planned to address it with his sixth man. "He has to mix it up. That is something he and I will talk about when I get back in [the locker room]," Woodson said. "When you are not making your threes, you have to get something close or get to the free-throw line."

Well when you're the Heat at home, and on the road, being the benefactors of all kinda silly touch fouls and non calls, I guess to easy for them to remain focus and mentally strong, huh? Yeah, thought so! Apple!

You can overcome officiating with 60%+ FG shooting and superior rebounding.

Kidd can still ball. 14 points, 8 rebounds, 6 asists and 3 steals. He does a little of everything. But, some think he should retire?Smh.

Kidd is the key.
