LeBron James and Mario Chalmers combined for seven steals, leading the Heat to a Game 1 blowout win over the Knicks.  One of David’s keys was limiting turnovers, but the Knicks committed a total of 24 yesterday.  A flu-weakened Tyson Chandler turned the ball over seven times and committed a flagrant foul (which looked like just a hard foul to me).  The Game Finder identified only eight games where a player scored 0 points and committed 7 turnovers.  With Iman Shumpertjoining Jeremy Lin on the sideline, the Knicks need Chandler to play better to keep this series interesting.
