Rockets Owner Leslie Alexander with Dwight Howard

His team may not have made the NBA finals but Houston Rockets owner Leslie Alexander has scored another real estate slam dunk.

The billionaire financier has scooped up a $ 20.6 million apartment at the Baccarat Hotel & Residences at 20 W. 53rd St., just months after he listed his Gramnercy Park penthouse for a whopping $ 50 million, according to public records filed with the city Monday.

The 4,545 square-foot aerie is on the 44th floor of the brand new crystal-studded building and comes with access to the amenities of the Baccarat Hotel, including the new Chevalier restaurant, La Mer Spa, a fitness center and pool and a 24-hour concierge.

Alexander’s broker, Melanie Lazenby of Douglas Elliman, was not immediately available for comment on the sale.

Alexander’s Gramercy spread, which has its own wet bar and a private heated outdoor swimming pool, is still on the market. The businessman bought it for just $ 42 million two years ago.

He hadn’t planned to unload the property so quickly but hasn’t been spending as much time there as he intended, thanks to the Rockets’ grueling schedule, Lazenby previously told the Daily News. That might explain the downsizing.

A spokeswoman for the Baccarat did not immediately return a call for comment.
