It feels like the Knicks only job in what should likely be classified as a Rebuilding season is to further develop Kristaps Porzingis, instead in their home loss to Houston, Porzingis had 3 points on the night on just 0-4 shooting
Meanwhile, way past his prime point guard Derrick Rose and candidate for the worst contract given of the offseason year award winner Jokaim Noah combined to go 8-20 for 16 points in the blowout loss. Courtney Lee had a very efficient game going for 16 on 7-12 shooting and 2-4 from deep.
For the Rockets James Harden continues an incredible start to the season going for 30 points, 15 assists and 2 steals in the 19 point win. There’s a legitimate conversation being built that he could be becoming the best point guard in the NBA with Eric Gordon (21 points 6-11 FGA) emerging as the shooting guard on this team.
Montrezl Harrell looked really good off the bench holding his own on defense and putting up 17 points on 8-11 shooting. Rookie out of Gonzaga Kyle Wiltjer logged in minutes for the second time in his young career, but struggled going 0-3 from deep in his brief appearance.
