In his debut with the New York Knicks on Saturday, former Celtics guard Eddie House dropped 24 points on 8-of-14 shooting, including 4-of-8 from beyond the arc, over 36 minutes in a 121-118 overtime loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder. He added five rebounds, two assists, and a steal.

The Celtics traded House, Bill Walker and J.R. Giddens to the Knicks at Thursday's trade deadline for Nate Robinson and Marcus Landry.

House did all he could in his first game in blue and orange, making key shots and free throws late in the game, but the Thunder's Kevin Durant answered each time to lift his team to victory.

Tracy McGrady also made his New York debut Saturday, scoring 26 points in the loss.

Walker did not play, while Giddens remains sidelined while rehabbing from arthroscopic knee surgery.
