New York Knicks
HOUSTON -- Even for a team ranked second in the NBA in pace, the Houston Rockets exceeded all expectations against the New York Knicks on Friday night. Keyed by the unconscious shooting of Chandler Parsons in the first quarter, the free-throw marksmanship of James Harden in the second, and another knockout rally in the third period, the Rockets shot the lights out at Toyota Center and deconstructed the Knicks 131-103. The Rockets (6-7), who entered play second to the Bucks averaging 94.5 possessions per 48 minutes, set a breakneck pace in the first quarter and never relented, parlaying Parsons' 18-point period into momentum that never waned. Harden hit all nine of his free throws in the second and combined with Parsons to produce 64 points on 20-for-32 shooting. Before suffering their first loss at Memphis on Nov. 16, the Knicks (8-3) paced the NBA in defensive rating. Their steady decline to ninth by Friday night was on display as the Rockets shot 51.7 percent from the fl...

JUST THE FACTS
Houston Rockets rookie Royce White went on another Twitter rant, this time he directed it at a prominent writer regarding a week-old article he wrote.
James Harden scored 33 points and Chandler Parsons added a career-high 31 Friday night to help the Houston Rockets coast to a 131-103 victory over the New York Knicks.
Jeremy Lin added 13 points, seven rebounds and three assists for Houston in his first game against his former team.
The Rockets entered the third quarter up by 12, and scored 10 straight points later in the quarter...
Houston Rockets guard Jeremy Lin said he believes that his exit from New York and the Knicks was part of God's "perfect plan" for him.
Jeremy Lin is getting ready to play the New York Knicks for the first time since leaving them during the offseason to sign with the Houston Rockets. Naturally, he’s facing plenty of questions from the New York media about his time with the team and his departure. His first game against the Knicks also marks a perfect time to reevaluate the Knicks’ decision to let him go, which...
HOUSTON If something can be remarkable specifically because it was unremarkable, then Jeremy Lin was remarkable Friday night.
Because he wasn't. Make sense?
Lin had a nice game in his first game against the New York Knicks, a 131-103 Rockets win at Toyota Center in Houston. He scored 13 points, had three assists, four turnovers and one steal.
"His swag was good,"...
First, let’s just get this video out the way since it was on the national news this morning… your Mom might be asking you about, so you’ll need to know. I think YouTube works in all countries, but just in case: It’s Dwight Howard (in an ugly ass all white uniform) with Carmelo (in what appears to be an all orange uniform), Joe Johnson in all black (which actually works for...

Last season, the talk of the NBA surprisingly wasn’t the Miami Heat, but it was Jeremy Lin and the New York Knicks. When crunch time came by, they strolled down to South Beach and Linsanity got entirely seriously shut down while the Knicks got their butts whooped by the Heat themselves.
It was worse than most people imagined, because not only did the Knicks suffer a confidence...
The situation between Royce White and the Houston Rockets has been pretty confusing these past couple of weeks, to say the least. White has gone some big Twitter rages sometimes, and it’s really weird to see.
Although things are seeming to get a little better as both sides recently met, it doesn’t stop White from doing what he does on Twitter. Even though he has commented...
Jeremy Lin finally faced his former team the New York Knicks Friday night, and came out on the winning end of a high octane offensive game for the Houston Rockets.
While the “Linsanity” reunion was the headlining act, Rockets forward Chandler Parsons stole the spotlight early.
Parsons ended the night with a career-high 31 points, while adding [...]
Jeremy Lin became a global phenomenon with the New York Knicks last season.
Now, "Linsanity" has faded, and his struggles with the Houston Rockets is partly why.
Lin will try to bounce back from one of his worst performances of the season in order to help the Rockets continue their dominance of the Knicks in his first meeting with his former team Friday night.
The Knicks will be taking on Jeremy Lin who is now on the Rockets for the first time this season later on tonight at 8:00 pm in Houston.
But if Jeremy Lin was a Knick today, he thinks himself and Melo would've worked out well which nobody is buying into it.
Last season, Carmelo Anthony and Jeremy Lin both struggled working together as they tried to make it work, but it didn...
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.
This was Mike Woodson's worse loss...
James Harden scored 28 points, Patrick Patterson added 20 and the Houston Rockets snapped a three-game losing streak with a 93-89 victory over the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night.
Toney Douglas swished a 3-pointer and sank two free throws in the final 1:11 as Houston won for the 33rd consecutive time when holding its opponent below 90 points, the NBA's longest current streak...
