James Harden scored 36 points in his return to the lineup and the Houston Rockets withstood Carmelo Anthony’s 45 points to beat the Knicks 109-106 Thursday night.
Considering the way former Knick Jeremy Lin has been playing, the Rockets might not need James Harden to turn things around when they seek their 16th win in 17 games against New York.
According to a report, the Nets and former NBA coach Jeff Van Gundy have begun preliminary talks over their head coaching position.
East Rutherford, Newark or Brooklyn. The Houston Rockets win no matter where the nomadic Nets call home.
Rockets beat Brooklyn 119-106 on Saturday night for their 12th consecutive win over the Nets.
The Brooklyn Nets are looking to re-establish their recent momentum, while the Houston Rockets are hoping they’ve already begun doing just that.
Get ready for an NBA marathon on Christmas Day.
It’s hard to separate the Jeremy Lin — the man from the myth.
Invaders beware: You’re going to have to bring your best to the Garden floor if you wish to escape MSG with a victory.
In the end it was Lin, with 22 points and eight assists, leading the Rockets to victory. A familiar romp on the Garden court.
His old fans booed him. His old friend clobbered him. Otherwise, it was Linsanity all over again at Madison Square Garden.
Cheer him, boo him, whatever — The bottom line is that Jeremy Lin has been a non-factor since leaving New York.
Linsanity was a short, but spectacular time in Knicks’ history. Even though he’s gone, the New York Knicks’ locker room is filled with Lin admirers.
Kyrie Irving put in a memorable performance as the Cavs gave the Knicks everything they could handle. New York escaped with a tight victory.
It’s goofy, tone-deaf and weird. In other words, a total airball.
