Shumpert blows out knee

Not only did the New York Knicks lose to the Miami Heat 100-67 in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals, the Knickerbockers lost Iman Shumpert for the rest of the playoffs with a torn ACL.

The injury occurred with 6:09 left in the third quarter with the Heat up 64-40. Shumpert was bringing the ball back up the court after a missed shot by the Heat. He attempted to go around Mario Chalmers with a behind the back dribble when he crossed halfcourt. The only problem was that Shumpert faked himself out when his left leg gave way.

The loss will be a huge problem for the Knicks because Shumpert is their best perimeter defender and their backup point guard.
