8. Heats-Knicks Rivalry
The Heat and Knicks developed an intense rivalry in the late 1990s when they met in the playoffs for four consecutive years from 1997 to 2000. The Knicks got the better of the Heat during that period winning three of the four series, however, since then the Heat have had the last laugh winning three NBA titles to New York’s zero. You’ll still find plenty of hate between these two franchises all these years later, so don’t miss your chance to see the Heat take on the Knicks.
