The Houston Rockets (6-7) beat the New York Knicks (8-3) 131-103, last night at the Toyota Center in Houston, TX.
This was an unwatchable if you were a Knicks fan. No defense, no sense of urgency and no shot for the Knicks winning this game.
The defense got exposed by giving up easy layups, easy three pointers and getting beat in the paint.

Carmelo Anthony had great game scoring wise, but he was awful on defense. He scored 37 points, grabbed 4 rebounds, made 2 assists and commited 7 turnovers.
Raymond Felton played one-on-one with Jeremy Lin who had an okay game yesterday against his former team. Felton dropped 17 points and made 8 assists.
J.R. Smith struggled from the field going 2 for 13 with 12 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals.
Jason Kidd scored 7 points, grabbed 5 rebounds, made 5 assists and blocked 2 shots.
Tyson Chandler scored 6 points, grabbed 7 rebounds and blocked 3 shots.
Jeremy Lin (Rockets) scored 13 points, grabbed 7 rebounds, made 3 assists and commited 4 turnovers against his former team (Knicks).
