The Houston Rockets are trying to hold on to an early lead for the second night in a row. Last night they lost a lead to the Philadelphia 76ers and eventually lost in half time. Against the New York Knicks on Thursday night the Rockets find themselves ahead by a slim margin.

The highlight of the first half might be this alley-oop from Raymond Felton to Kenyon Martin. Felton is charging towards the elbow when Dwight Howard stands in his way. Felton pulls up and puts this floater in the air over Howard. Kenyon Martin then elevates and slams it home for the easy bucket.

He does it over Francisco Garcia who wisely doesn’t contest to well. The dunk could’ve put him on a poster if he didn’t back down and get out of the way.
