The New York Knicks are on the brink of elimination, following a 109-101 loss at the hands of the Miami Heat in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.

Despite solid efforts from Jalen Brunson (32 points), R.J. Barrett (24 points) and Julius Randle (20 points) it wasn’t enough to make up for the eight pointe deficit the Knicks found themselves in predominately all night long to Miami.

For every Knicks bucket, the Heat would have an answer on the other end. It was impossible for New York as couldn’t slow down Jimmy Butler and Co. At one point the Heat built a 10-point advantage on the Knicks mid-way through the fourth quarter.

Butler finished with 27 points on 9-of-17 shooting; in three games against New York in this series, Butler has owned the Knicks, averaging 26.2 points per game, and is averaging 48 percent from the field.

Bam Adebayo dropped down 23 points in the win for Miami; while Max Strus contributed 16 points, and Klye Lowry posted 15 points off the bench.

Miami can finish the Knicks off Wednesday night at the Garden.
