02 December 2012 09:49:41 EST

The New York Knicks will look to move a game and a half ahead of the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday afternoon when they play one of only two games on the NBA slate.

Jason Kidd will be in action for the Knicks against the Nets on Sunday.

The struggling Phoenix Suns come into town with a 7-10 record after defeats to the Detroit Pistons and Toronto Raptors in their last twooutings.

Winners of two straight since losing to the Nets last Monday, New York opens up a three-game road trip on Wednesday at the Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte against the Bobcats before moving on to Miami and Chicago.

Saturday Norris Cole and Ray Allen came off the bench for a combined 25 points and Dwyane Wade led all scorers with 34 points as the Heat defeated the Nets 102-89 in Miami to move to an Eastern Conference best 12-3 and remain unbeaten at home.

LeBron James added a further 21 points, nine rebounds and six assists as the Heat shot over 51% from the floor.

Brooklyn returns home to the Barclays Center on Tuesday to host the Oklahoma City Thunder while Miami are in Washington to face the Wizards.

In Milwaukee the Bucks overcame a very slow start to defeat the Boston Celtics 91-88 at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

Larry Sanders had 18 points, 16 rebounds and five blocks to lead the way for Milwaukee who kept pace with the Chicago Bulls in the Central Division.

Chicago picked up their second straight with a five-point win over the visiting Philadelphia 76ers at the United Center and now awaits the arrival of the Indiana Pacers to close out their four-game home stand.

Chicago are 7500/1 to win the NBA Championship, while Miami Heat are 3/4 and Oklahoma Thunder can be backed at 7500/1.
