Houston's Eric Gordon averaging almost 25 points a game this year

Houston's Eric Gordon averaging almost 25 points a game this year”

As expected, James Harden top-scored for his team, finishing with 31 points, and added five rebounds and nine assists to lead them to the victory on the night. D'Antoni said they had the bus ready to take them and figured it wasn't worth it.

While the Rockets are far from a defensive powerhouse, the team plays better defense than often credited for while taking into account the torrid pace the team plays at.

D'Antoni said the Rockets' data showed they were getting similar 3-point attempts as last season, when they set an National Basketball Association record for makes, but they just hadn't been almost as accurate.

"He does a great job with the guys he has", Hornacek said of D'Antoni.

The Knicks came out hot, behind nine points from Kristaps Porzingis, racing out to a three-point first quarter lead. "He had Steve Nash in Phoenix". When Chris comes back, he'll have another guy that can do it. Perhaps the Knicks rightfully now have realized that handing the proverbial keys to the Latvian was the best way to achieve quick success after a disappointing 16-17 season. Gordon's hot shooting has resulted in a 24.7 point per game average, a flawless complement to Harden-even with Chris Paul battling injury thus far this season.

Houston had been struggling offensively of late, but seemed to have little problems against the Knicks. Ryan Anderson helped get Houston off to its strong start with 16 first-half points; he finished with 21.

"The last three games they looked really good", D'Antoni said.

Hornacek is pushing the Knicks to play up-tempo as he did the Suns, who he guided to 48 wins in 2013-14. "Porzingis has been off the charts". "They're playing really well". You know. Other than tonight, I'm happy for him because I know what he's going thorough and it' not easy.

Members of the NYPD and New York City Fire Department presented the colors and the Knicks held a moment of silence before the game for the victims of the attack. I'm sure the Garden (Wednesday night) is going to be buzzing, and it should be. We'd win two games in a row and we were going to win a championship and we didn't have anybody. The buzz, you could feel it and that's why it's a special place. It's tough if you let it be tough.

"It's tough if you let it be tough, but you also, if you have management and coaches and players all on the same page, then you just live in your little cocoon and you coach and you go into the most exciting place in the world to play basketball..."
