While seeking their fifth straight victory, this will be the Rockets second and final meeting of the season against the Knicks. In their last match-up, the Rockets came away with a 114-110 victory over the Knicks in the Big Apple. In a surprising and competitive game, it took a career-high 61 points from James Harden to push the Rockets over the top.

According to Kelly Iko of The Athletic, the Rockets will be without head coach Mike D’Antoni, who is out due to the stomach flu. Although the Rockets will take the court without their head coach, Houston should not have anything to worry about. Dating back to the 2004-05 season, the Rockets have won 25 of their last 27 games against the Knicks.
