Rockets take down Knicks in matchup of former players

NEW YORK (NBA.com exclusive) -- In the end, Jordan Hill and Jared Jeffries had the last laugh.

One month after being dealt by the Knicks to Houston, Hill and Jeffries returned to Madison Square Garden and played pivotal roles as the Rockets downed the Knicks 116-112 before 17,242.

Hill, a rookie who was called out before the game by Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni, scored a career-high 13 points as Houston's bench outscored the Knicks' bench 52-13.

Jeffries, who spent four years with the Knicks before being dealt along with Hill in the deal that brought Tracy McGrady to New York, drew four charges and had two key blocks down the stretch. Jeffries was especially impressive as the Rockets closed the game on an 11-3 run after New York took a 109-105 lead on a 3-pointer from Toney Douglas, who had a career-high 26 points. Aaron Brooks scored seven straight points to put the Rockets ahead for good.

"Winning is always good, but it's always better when you contribute to it, when you have a part and a hand in your team winning," the 6-foot-11 Jeffries said. "Especially against a former team, it's always fun."

Before the game, D'Antoni appeared to take a shot at Hill, the No. 8 pick in last June's NBA Draft, and his lack of major playing time in New York.

"I don't like to play bad rookies, I like to play good rookies," D'Antoni said.

When informed of the comments after the game, Hill said, "He's entitled to his own opinion. If that's the way he feels, that's how he feels. I'm entitled to my opinion, so I'm just going to go out there and say what I feel."

Asked if he was trying to make a point in his return to the Garden, Hill said, "I'm not trying to make no point, man. I'm just trying to play basketball."

Kevin Martin led Houston (36-32) with a game-high 28 points. Chase Budinger and Kyle Lowery scored 18 apiece off the bench, while Brooks scored seven of his 16 in the final period, when the Rockets outscored the Knicks 24-18.

The Knicks (25-45) led 32-17 after one quarter, but the tenor of the game turned in the second quarter when the Rockets outscored New York 45-32.

Houston got big contributions off its bench in the second.

Lowery scored nine points in the period, Budinger had eight and Hill scored seven.

For the game, David Lee led the Knicks with 27 points and 20 rebounds, becoming the first Knick since Patrick Ewing to record back-to-back seasons with at least 45 double-doubles.

Still, the Knicks led 110-107 after Danilo Gallinari (26 points) made 1 of 2 foul shots, but failed to score a field goal for more than four minutes down the stretch until Bill Walker's meaningless dunk at the end.

Brooks went on a personal 7-0 run for the Rockets, tying it at 110 with a 3-pointer from the left wing, then adding a driving layup and a 23-foot jumper over Gallinari for a 114-110 edge with 56.9 seconds left.

"You can't control Aaron Brooks making those big shots, which they were hard shots," D'Antoni said. "But you can control get back. We didn't get back."

Over the final 3:55, Jeffries made two blocks and grabbed a rebound.

Meanwhile, Douglas, his former teammate, was twice called for offensive fouls on Jeffries in the final 2:29 and also lost the ball out of bounds.

"I know Jared is good at taking charges," Douglas said. "I was at the basket and I tried to twist my body so I would walk right into him. But they still called a charge, and that's what he does."

"I just try to come in and make winning plays," Jeffries said. "We had a hard time getting stops tonight so we were able to come in and get some stops late, and offensively Aaron carried us."

While Hill and Jeffries faced their former team for the first time, so did McGrady.

Acquired at the trading deadline along with his $23 million expiring contract, McGrady has been inconsistent with the Knicks while trying to come back from surgery last February on his left knee.

Against the Rockets, he had 15 points, seven rebounds and five assists, but failed to score in the fourth quarter.

"It probably was one of my better all-around games," McGrady said. "The way I played, physically, the way I felt. I tried to do a little bit of everything. I tried to post, I tried to drive inside, I tried to rebound a little bit. I tried to make plays."

Rockets coach Rick Adelman said he was uncertain what McGrady would bring to the Knicks after the trade, but believes McGrady can be an impact player if he gets healthy.

"I think if he continues to get better and if he gets his explosiveness back a little bit better, his quickness back, where he can get around people," Adelman said before the game. "He's still one of the best passers in the league. He's still one of the best playmakers in the league.

"He just needs to get that leg going where he can actually get by people and I think his basketball IQ is way up there. He understands the game, he knows what is happening so he's the type of player when he gets healthier and is moving better, is going to be effective for somebody because he has that special ability."
