What to Know

The Houston Rockets are 8-1 against the New York Knicks since November of 2015, and they’ll have a chance to extend that success Monday. The Rockets are on the road again Monday and play against New York at 7 p.m. ET at Madison Square Garden. Houston is currently enjoying a six-game winning streak and is looking to extend their dominance.

It may have taken overtime to finish the job, but Houston ultimately got the result they were hoping for this past Saturday with a 111-110 victory over the Boston Celtics. It was another big night for Houston’s point guard Russell Westbrook, who had 41 points and five assists along with eight rebounds. Westbrook’s night made it three games in a row now in which he has scored at least 33 points.

Meanwhile, New York beat the Chicago Bulls 125-115 this past Saturday. Center Mitchell Robinson was the offensive standout of the contest for the Knicks, posting a double-double on 23 points and ten boards.

The wins brought Houston up to 39-20 and New York to 18-42. A couple offensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Houston ranks second in the league when it comes to points per game, with 118.8 on average. On the other end of the spectrum, New York is stumbling into the game with the second fewest points per game in the league, having accrued only 105.1 on average. So the cards are definitely stacked against New York.
