RJ Barrett added 19 points, Obi Toppin had 15 and Quinten Grimes scored 14 for the Knicks. Quickley connected on 14 of 17 shots from the field and added nine assists. He started in place of Jalen Brunson, who missed his second straight game with a bruised right hand. Kevin Porter Jr. led the Rockets with 26 points. Jalen Green had 19 and Kenyon Martin Jr. added 18 as Houston dropped its sixth straight game. Randle scored 15 points as the Knicks led 36-33 after the first quarter. His slam gave New York a 23-22 lead and they never trailed again. New York took its first double-digit lead, 49-39, on Josh Hart's drive with 7:37 remaining in the second quarter. Houston went on a 10-0 run to tie the game, but a Quickley 3-pointer ignited a 12-5 run by the Knicks and New York went on to lead 66-61 at halftime. Quickley, who had 22 points at intermission, gave the Knicks a 97-83 lead on a 3-pointer with 1:42 left in the third quarter, and Randle's buzzer-beating 3 put New York ahead 102-90. The Knicks opened the fourth quarter on a 10-0 run before Green finally broke the streak with a pair of free throws with 9:26 remaining. The Rockets never got any closer as the New York lead ballooned to as many as 33 points on Quickley's last points of the game, two free throws with 4:11 remaining. TIP-INS Rockets: Houston last won at Madison Square Garden 114-110 on Jan. 23, 2019, when James Harden scored a career high with 61 points. ... The Rockets have lost seven straight games to the Knicks. ... No Rocket player has played in every game this season. Jabari Smith leads with 73 appearances. Knicks: New York played its first home game since the death of its former captain and Hall of Famer Willis Reed. The Knicks players wore #19 shirts during warm-ups and introductions. The acknowledgement also included a moment of silence and video tributes. ... Randle and Isaiah Hartenstein are the only Knicks to play in all of the team's games this season. JUNIOR PROM The Rockets don't have many wins this season, posting the second-worst record in the NBA. However, they may lead the league in juniors: TyTy Washington Jr., Jabari Smith Jr., Kevin Porter Jr., and Kenyon Martin Jr. are all on the roster.
