This is what they want other people, not house money. No more this But the Knicks need to start these six road games precisely West when they start on Sunday night. The Houston Rockets are terrible and the supply of active players is minimal and they are playing well.
Rockets must be hit
The Knicks smashed their rockets, punched them 122-97 and could even give Julius Randle a full quarter break, a good way to keep him fresh for Monday’s second leg trip to Meme. Phis
Now the fun can be really Start
In fact, Knicks can think about being greedy.
The Celtics lost their mantle on Sunday; They are now three games behind the Knicks in the losing column. The heat beat wasps They had two games back in the losing column, just like Atlanta. Now, the Knicks can skip one game from the calendar, they can switch to Memphis and go to Denver, beyond Phoenix and LA.
And start thinking about something else
Most of the Knicks fans the past few days were out of work as they waited for the team to play again, agreeing that they would sign up for 2-4 Travel You took care of business in Houston. And see what happens from there They̵7;ve defeated Memphis, a nine-game winning streak that has now won 11 in 12 games. Onard, Anthony Davis – will sit unexpectedly.
And no coincidence, the Knicks have proven that they are good enough to be with the entire team on this tour for 48 minutes, but to be true about their wider travel ambitions, the Knicks need to. Oversees the business at the Toyota Center in Houston.

“I never felt that it was ridiculous for us,” said Tom Thiboders. “You have to play for 48 minutes, you are busy with that kind of team, they start making 3s with you, they can build the basics.”
In fact, The Rockets stunned the Bucks a few nights ago, with help from Giannis Antetokounmpo’s absence, they had nothing to lose, able to play independently, freely and easily, and they jumped out. Go into the five-score lead early.
But the Knicks are playing too well right now, riding too powerful waves. They haven’t lost a trap game for weeks. They understand what awaits them on this journey. They are a team focused on the business at hand right now.

The next five will surely be like that. The next five are the games that Knicks fans have pointed out for weeks, months since it became clear that those games were important to the Knicks. Maybe it felt like a happy accident at first, the way the whole season felt for the first 45 games or so.
But nothing accidentally happened where the Knicks are now: 36-28, already hitting the .500 record this year, one point in the latter’s season tournament. Five months and a day earlier, when the Knicks first got together for the season on the first day of December, the goal seemed to be a laughing matter, if not a serious rave.
Five months and a day later, on the second of May, they felt like a prelude to the bigger, the better. In a few weeks, that will mean a variety of summer games. Starting now, it means the Memphis / Denver / Phoenix / Los Angeles Glove that might very well dictate the timing of season two.
“We’re holding onto a challenge,” Rose said. “We know everyone is playing for something. Every team, every game is going to be a rough game like a playoff game. ”
Starting Monday night at Memphis’ FedExForum, as long as the journey continues, they’ll all feel like they’re in a playoff game. Then it’s a playoff game Now the fun can really begin.
