A much-needed victory at Madison Square Garden for Houston.
The Rockets snapped a two-game losing streak against the Knicks with a big win 119-97. This brings Houston to a 6-3 record as New York dropped to 3-4 on the young season.
The Rockets started the game very sloppy as the Knicks jumped out to an early first quarter lead. However, a 14-0 run with Harden resting on the bench pushed the Rockets out in front for good. 12 points was the difference at halftime as the Rockets lead 60-48.
