    Thanks Rady. Dwight and PBev are out as well as TJones for the Rox tonight so the boys are playing a team without 3 starters.

    If Shump can shut down Harden they can win this game. Fouls are the key with Harden since he gets so many points at the FT line.

    From Bookies Hate Him
    While it's true the Rockets have been excellent and the Knicks have been awful so far this season, we think the best NBA betting value may come with New York tonight.

    New York Knicks
    It's hard to find many positive things to say about the Knicks, who have struggled out of the gate to the tune of a 4-10 record.
    Nonetheless, we're in the business of taking advantage of weak spots in the NBA odds, and we think this is a good situatino to take a New York team that's still adjusting to new surroundings. They've got a new coach and a new offensive system, and it's going to take time for them to adjust.
    The Knicks enter tonight's game having gone 2-2 over their last four with wins over the 76ers and Nuggets and losses to the Bucks and Timberwolves.

    Houston Rockets
    The Rockets now stand at 10-3 for the season, the Rockets are second in the NBA in points allowed per game (92.2) heading into Monday night's contest at home.
    Following back-to-back losses, one of which came at home to the lowly Lakers, the Rockets recovered by beating a strong Mavericks team two nights ago

    Aghiiite Rady .. on the Game Thread

    It's hard to be optimistic about a Knicks win, when Fisher defense is so shabby. However ....
    The Knicks advantage ..
    No D.Howard
    Calderon vs Beverley
    Shump vs Harden
    Amare vs Donatas Motiejunas and Tarik Black
    This is another game Amare could get 25 pts on DUNKS

    You would think DFish is tanking with these lineups.

    Melo ain't coming back. If you wanted the Knicks to tank Melo being out will sure do it.

    Knicks have done their best to hang around, but even with the Rockets injury issues, we look overmatched talent-wise. You never know what can happen if you can keep a game close though. Let's go Knicks!

    The Rockets may be missing some key guys and we may still lose this game, but this effort tonight has been impressive. If we can go on the road and play with this kind of energy, we can keep compete on a nightly basis with anyone.

    Up 6 with under 9 to play in the 4th... And 3 consecutive JR turnovers on 3 consecutive possessions and just like that HOU up 1.

    How much longer must we endure JR Smith?
