Eddie House Knicks Debut

On Saturday night, the New York Knicks lost. Nothing new, right?

Well, that’s not entirely true, as the Knicks sported their two new acquisitions as they make a desperate push for the eight and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Former All-Star Tracy McGrady debuted with the Knicks, and he scored 26 points in 32 minutes.

Eddie House, meanwhile, played 36 minutes in the 122-118 overtime loss. House scored a season-high 24 points on 8-14 shooting (4-8 from downtown). He also tallied five rebounds and a steal in an impressive first game with his new team.

You may remember that House previously played for Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni in Phoenix while with the Suns in the 2005-2006 season. That year, he played 81 games in the fast-paced D’Antoni system, and averaged 9.8 points per game.
