The doubleheader begins with Game 1 at 8PM Eastern Time on TNT TV as the New York Knicks will host the Houston Rockets. The Rockets have dropped six of their past ten games. The team acquired Josh Smith after he was cut by the Detroit Pistons. The knock on Smith is that he doesn’t share the basketball with his teammates and interrupts the flow of their offense. Smith has now been relegated to come off the bench. The Rockets will be on a back to back after their played at Cleveland on Wednesday night. New York will be on a back to back as well as the club played at Washington on Wednesday. It has been a miserable season for New York as the team is 5-32 entering play against the Wizards. The team is 29th and second last in the league in scoring offense as they push across just 93 points per game on the year. With a poor record the Knicks traded away salary as JR Smith and Iman Shumpert were moved for expiring contracts in return. New York will have $33 million dollars in spending money in the offseason for free agents.

The late night game out west has the Portland Trailblazers playing host to the Miami Heat at 10;30PM Eastern Time on TNT TV. The Heat will open up this road trip with a mark of 15-20. They recently broke a four game losing streak as they defeat Brooklyn by four points on Sunday. Scoring has been an issue for the Heat as the club puts up 94 points a game ranking 27th in the league. Dwyane Wade leads the club in scoring at 23 points per game. Portland is 27-8 on the year and trails Golden St by three games in the loss column for best record in the Western conference. The Trailblazers defend very well this year ranking in the top three in three key defensive categories which are scoring, field goal and three point defense.
