The Knicks lost a close one in Houston that came down to the wire, 100 to 102. Once again, the Knicks were led offensively by Carmelo Anthony and Iman Shumpert but they fell just short as Beno Udrih's runner rimmed out as the buzzer sounded.
It's a frustrating loss but still one to build upon as the Knicks have kept up with two of the league's premier teams.
Here are my Five Takeaways from the exciting game in Houston.
