Who’s Playing

Houston @ New York

Current Records: Houston 11-14; New York 12-15

What to Know

The Houston Rockets will take on the New York Knicks at 8 p.m. ET this past Saturday at Madison Square Garden. If the game is anything like New York’s 125-123 win from their previous meeting in March of last year, the scorekeeper will be kept real busy.

The Rockets came up short against the Miami Heat this past Thursday, falling 101-94. One thing holding Houston back was the mediocre play of small forward Danuel House Jr., who did not have his best game: he finished with only nine points on 3-for-13 shooting in his 31 minutes on the court.

A well-balanced attack led New York over the Washington Wizards every single quarter on their way to victory this past Friday. New York strolled past Washington with points to spare, taking the matchup 109-91. The Knicks can attribute much of their success to power forward Julius Randle, who posted a double-double on 24 points and 18 rebounds.

Barring any buzzer beaters, the Rockets are expected to win a tight contest. Now might not be the best time to take Houston against the spread since they’ve let down bettors for the past four consecutive games.

New York’s victory lifted them to 12-15 while Houston’s loss dropped them down to 11-14. We’ll see if New York can repeat their recent success or if Houston bounces back and reverse their fortune.
