New York Knicks at Houston Rockets - Struggling Knicks Hit the Road

The Knicks have lost three straight, and now they'll have to get back on track away from Madison Square Garden. The first stop of their Southwestern trip takes them to Houston. The Rockets sit at just 19-23, but are11-9 at home and have won two games in a row.

New York has struggled to score and defend simultaneously of late. They defended but shot under 40% against the Kings, then scored plenty but gave up 129 points against the Suns. The Rockets are a solid offensive team that defends poorly, so this should be a chance for MIke D'Antoni's squad to get back on track. At least we hope so.

Tonight's game opens a four-night, three-game swing in which the Knicks will also face the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder. New York will need to get back to their winning ways to avoid plummeting back under the .500 mark, where they haven't been since back in November.
