Rockets vs. Knicks game thread

This is a “take care of business” game for the Rockets.

The Houston Rockets head to the Big Apple tonight to take on the New York Knicks, and they’ll be looking to bounce back from one of their worst defeats of the season after losing to the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Knicks come into tonight a pitiful 10-35, and this is the kind of game the Rockets need to take care of business in if they have any hope of holding it down until the team is fully healthy. These winnable games need to be taken advantage of.

AK did a fine job, as always, in breaking down the Knicks in his preview, so I’m not going to waste your time with too much here in the game thread.

Eric Gordon is expected to play, though still battling a sore knee, and Chris Paul, Clint Capela, Nene, and Brandon Knight are out for Houston.

Anxious to see what Kenneth Faried looks like tonight as well.

Get it done tonight at the Mecca, then go have some fun on the town.

Go Rockets!
