The New York Knicks lost to the Houston Rockets on Monday night, which is a thing that usually happens. The Rockets hit 20 three-pointers, but at least this is the third consecutive game in which they’ve reached that mark...the Knicks aren’t the only ones giving up 20 triples to these guys! 117-95 was the final score. James Harden played 37 minutes for some reason, while four other starters also got major burn in the blowout. Other fans might think Mike D’Antoni was running up the score, but we’ve seen enough of Pringles to know that he just never takes his starters out of games. That should catch up with them right around playoff time.
The star of this game was rookie Damyean Dotson. The Houston native balled out against his hometown squad, scoring 17 points on 7-10 shooting (3-5 from beyond the arc) to go along with 2 rebounds, 2 assists and some pretty dang strong defense.

Ron Baker played for the first time this preseason and did his thing—missed a bunch of shots and hustleddddddd.

Oh, and Jarrett Jack tossed the worst buzzer-beating heave in the history of man.

Harrison will hit you up with a recap later. Dotson is the truth.
