NEW YORK, NY –
The Rockets fell to the Knicks 125-123 in a stunner at Madison Square Garden.
R.J. Barrett was one of the rookies who came into the league this year with heavy praise. I was a fan of this class but out of the hyped players, I was sleep on R.J. At least I’m being honest.
I’ll be even more honest and say that R.J. has been proving me wrong this entire season.
He tied his career-high last night with 27 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists. On the other bench Westbrook and Harden combined for 59 points but it wasn’t enough to get the win. The victory moves the Knicks to 19-42 on the season. Houston is 39-21 on the year.
