Over the Christmas weekend, The Knicks had one of their hardest back-to-backs this season as they faced the Miami Heat in South Beach and the Milwaukee Bucks back home at The Garden.

Marcus Morris, who is the Knicks Kicks of the Night MVP so far this season, stepped on the court in another edition of the Nike Kyrie 6 Preheat Collection. This time playing in the “Houston” color way, this shoe is becoming more popular among NBA athletes as an every game sneaker to play in this season. They retail for $130 and can be found on StockX.

PUMA athletes around the league this weekend started debuting the new PE editions of the PUMA Clyde Hardwood. On Saturday at The Garden, the Maple Mamba, RJ played in the New York Knicks PEs of the Clyde Hardwood. There isn’t any news on whether these would be released to the public but for now, you can shop for the rest of the PUMA Clyde Hardwood line on Puma.

Cole and PUMA, teamed up to create this shoe which sold out right after launching at the Day N Night festival in Las Vegas in November. The sneaker was released on November 22nd exclusively online at Footlocker.com. They retail for $120.
