1 Going Back To Back

The Knicks will be playing the second half of a back-to-back tonight after falling in Atlanta last night.

Meanwhile, the Rockets have been idle since Wednesday.

2 Will He or Won't He?

Enes Kanter missed last night’s game with back spasms and was sorely missed.

He is listed as questionable for tonight’s game. Kyle O’Quinn and Willy Hernangomez saw increased roles with Kanter sidelined.

3 Back At Full Strength

While the Knicks have their own injury questions, it appears the Rockets will have all hands on deck.

Both Eric Gordon and Ryan Anderson are expected to suit up tonight after missing Wednesday’s game.

4 Same Face, New Place

The Knicks will also get their first look at Chris Paul in a Rockets uniform, as he sat out when these teams played earlier this month.

In the three games since Paul returned from a knee injury, Houston is scoring 124 points per game and have won all three games by an average of 26 points.

5 Defend the 3!

Expect the 3-pointers to be flying tonight in Houston.

The Rockets lead the NBA in 3-point makes and attempts, while the Knicks allow the most 3-point makes and attempts.

Houston went 19-52 from deep (36.5%) in beating the Knicks earlier this season.
