What a difference a night made for Kiki Vandeweghe.
"It takes awhile to get my timing, learn the plays and handle the press," Vandeweghe said, slightly embarrassed by his 0-for-4 performance in a loss at Milwaukee Wednesday night. "But it certainly helped to hit my first three shots."
Vandeweghe was 8 for 15 and made all six free throws against the Heat, who lost their 16th consecutive road game and dropped to 1-25 away from home. The Knicks are 25-1 at Madison Square Garden.
Vandeweghe was playing his second game for the Knicks since he was traded to New York from the Portland Trail Blazers a week ago.
Sylvester Gray, led the Heat with season highs of 25 points and 14 rebounds.

Brad Daugherty scored 22 points and rookie Randolph Keys had a career-high 14 for the Cavaliers, whose 43 victories are one more than they had last season.
Mark Price missed the game with a concussion sustained when he took a blow from Rich Mahorn in the Cavaliers' victory over the Pistons Tuesday night. Price is expected to play against the Pistons tonight at Auburn Hills, Mich.
