The New York Knicks are officially on a winning streak. They've won four of five since the calendar flipped to 2014, and three in a row. Thursday night's nationally-televised triumph over the visiting Miami Heat was their finest performance of the season to date.

Here are Five Takeaways from a potentially season-altering win for the Knicks.
