After two very impressive victories, the Knicks now amazingly have a chance of getting over .500 tonight as they host the Houston Rockets at the Garden. The Rockets just lost to the Sixers, so this is very much a game that the Knicks should at least have a chance at winning. Eric Gordon is the Rockets’ back-up point guard right now, so hopefully the Knicks can put some pressure on Gordon when James Harden is out of the game.
While James Harden is in the game, of course, that will probably not be good for the Knicks, but still. Hey, the Knicks will have Porzingis in the game and he’s so good that he got Phil Jackson fired, so watch out, Rockets!
Here’s a funny thing I just remembered about Jarrett Jack. He’s such a cool guy that two separate teams acquired him in an attempt to mollify their star player into wanting to stay (the Raptors with Chris Bosh and the Hornets with Chris Paul). He must be one hell of a friend to these guys. What do you think everyone likes so much about Jarrett Jack?
Let’s go, Knicks!
