Heat not sure they should be playing in New York

NEW YORK (AP) - Dwyane Wade thinks the NBA should have postponed Miami's game at New York on Friday night, while LeBron James says he is "50-50" over whether the game should be played.

With New York hit hard by Superstorm Sandy, the Knicks' game scheduled for Thursday in Brooklyn was postponed, and Heat players thought theirs would follow. Instead, they flew from Miami on Thursday afternoon and arrived in their New York hotel after a three-hour bus ride from nearby Newark, N.J.

Wade said his reaction after seeing all the traffic as New Yorkers struggle to recover "was just like, 'Come on man, we shouldn't be here to play a basketball game.'"

James says he's happy to be in New York and understands the game could help raise some spirits.
