Good evening, children! Even after ten whole games, the Knicks are scheduled to play more basketball tonight. They're in Houston to face the Rockets who, as you may have heard, employ a former Knick or two. Like everyone else, I'm interested to see how Jeremy Lin looks and how the Knicks work against him, but it's not him I'm really worried about. I'm more concerned with how the Knicks are going to stop the penetration of James Harden, the shooting of guys like Marcus Morris, Chandler Parsons, and hell, even Toney Douglas, and the rebounding of the Rocket bigs. Houston's not an especially good shooting or rebounding team, but after what we saw in Dallas, I worry about the Knicks making them look that way. Perhaps just recency effect/overreaction, but I'm nervous. Either way, Houston is a very turnover-prone group, and a defense like the Knicks' should be able to snuff some possessions before the shots even go up.
Yeah. I'm looking forward to an exciting game. Hoping the Knicks can get back on track after a pretty upsetting loss in Dallas, too.
