Wilson Chandler, apparently, isn't accustomed to having Eddie House open in the corner. House was shooting the lights out in his MSG debut on his way to a 24 point night. His catch-and-shoot jumper (of course, from just inside the three point line) with 30.7 seconds left in OT put the Knicks up 118-117. But, a Kevin Durant jumper and two more free throws quickly put them back down. 

The Knicks had a chance to go ahead. But after taking a McGrady inbounds pass, Wilson Chandler decided to drive to the basket and wound up missing the lay-up not realizing House was open in the corner. House missed a desperation shot in the last seconds and the Knicks fell 121-118, wasting his debut and also Tracy McGrady's 26-point, five assist effort.
