The New York Knicks and the Miami Heat have both stumbled upon some issues recently. The Knicks are coming off a six-game losing streak which was finally snapped with a much-needed win against the Wizards.

The Heat showed that without LeBron James, they are just a mediocre, maybe even a sub-par team, in their loss against the Clippers and in the 130-102 beatdown they took from the Nuggets. The Heat just snapped their four-game slide with a win against the Toronto Raptors and are ready for Round 3 against the New York Knicks.

Last time the Knicks and the Miami Heat squared off at Madison Square Garden, both teams were on fire and so were the price of tickets to the game, averaging $348 a piece. This time around, both teams are on a bit of a cooler and ticket prices are only $21 cheaper on average, a 6 percent decline from the average price of a ticket for the December 17 game.

Considering both teams have been less than impressive as of late, you might think that ticket prices would be considerably less this time around, but New Yorkers have shown that they are willing to pay up to see LeBron, Wade and Bosh take on the Knicks at the Garden.
