Al Iannazzone

JR Smith's hip hampered him tonight but he made some huge shots. He couldn't reach down to tie his shoes after the game.

Ian Begley

JR Smith played through some significant hip pain tonite. Thirty minutes after the game, he still can't bend over to tie his shoes. #Knicks

Mico Halili

JR Smith has mastered the triangle. Dribble around until you form imaginary triangle then shoot. Book it!

Ethan J. Skolnick

JR Smith vs. Dion Waiters on clearouts.... It's what the people came to see.

Adam Zagoria

New Jersey well-repped in this game: Kyrie Irving played at St. Pat's JR Smith & Tristan Thompson at St. Ben's Dion Waiters at Life Center

Tas Melas

Untie JR Smith's laces. He'll laugh.

Tommy Beer

Triangle offense less reliant on a prototypical PG to initiate the offense… Might Fisher try to use Shump & JR Smith in the same backcourt?

Adam Zagoria

JR Smith said the Bulls kicked down his mom's front door theknicksblog.com/knicks/knicks-… #KNicks

Ian Begley

JR Smith: "When we stopped competing the end of the 3rd quarter, 4th quarter, we could all tell.... We just couldn’t do anything about it."

Brian Mahoney

Shumpert (2 for 9), JR Smith (2 for 8), Hardaway Jr. 2 for 10. The 2-guard spot for the Knicks remains a disaster.

Adam Zagoria

JR Smith: 'They smelled blood in the water and we put our heads down & tucked our tails.' #Knicks

Wally Szcerzbiak

#Bulls bench turned game around. JR Smith -16 Tim JR. -18. #knicks starters played solid.

David Locke

Best EFG% catch and shoot players (top 100 atts) Korver (71.3%) JR Smith (67.2) Calderon (66.1) Miller (64.1) Ariza (63.6%) Belinelli (63.1)

David Locke

Worst EFG% of top 100 (atts) pull up shooters last year - Green (33%) Burks (36.2%) JR Smith (36.4) DeRozan (36.8) Wall (36.9) Stuckey (37)

Howard Beck

Asked about JR Smith saying it will take 3 months to learn triangle, Shaq says, "That's true."

Alan Hahn

Of course. Patience. RT @Kevin939699: @Alan Hahn Alan, do you think @JR Smith will catch on with the triangle?

Lang Greene

Knicks shooting percentages during preseason - adjusting to triangle Carmelo: 45.5% JR Smith: 33.8% Shumpert: 34.9% Hardaway Jr: 42.9%

Demian Belmonte

Un vistazo a los mejores y peores del último día de la pretemporada. Pau 7 pérdidas y JR Smith 1/11 ultimatenba.com/jornada_nba/20…

Lang Greene

JR Smith says triangle offense has been tough, so it's no surprise last five preseason games he's shooting just 27% from field 13% from 3PT

Chris Herring

Only in the third quarter, but Knicks have four technical fouls: Fisher, Stoudemire, JR Smith and Pablo Prigioni.

Al Iannazzone

JR Smith hobbling a little. He has had back spasms. Fisher probably should limit some of these guys.

Paul Jones

Working out of the pinch post area in pregame @therealjrsmith #raptors #rtz keek.com/!peuneab

Alan Hahn

"I want one so bad, I'll do whatever it takes. If it takes me sacrificing my scoring, that's what it takes." - @JR Smith on a title

Alan Hahn

You've got to appreciate the candor that @JR Smith offers about himself in admitting it's a struggle for him in the Triangle.

Sean Highkin

I choose to believe JR Smith chose #8 with the Knicks because of R. Kelly's jersey/jacket/vest thing in the "Gigolo" video.

Chris Sheridan

Phil Jackson basically says JR Smith needs to become a better IQ player, Griffin accused of bitch-slapping club goer: sheridanhoops.com/2014/10/23/sh-…

Jorge Castillo

That was JR Smith’s 1st shot attempt.

Jorge Castillo

JR Smith just chucked a 3 from like 40 feet thinking time was expiring. But there was like 5 seconds left.

Fred Kerber

#Knicks JR Smith talked to #Giants Victor Cruz Thurs: "He’s in great spirits which is pretty much all you can do at this point"

Adam Zagoria

#Knicks JR Smith says he thinks Dennis Rodman comparison is fair and he appreciates Rodman took time to Tweet about him.

Chris Sheridan

Dennis Rodman calls #Knicks JR Smith the new Dennis Rodman. Like that's a compliment #NBA sheridanhoops.com/2014/10/16/twe…

Emiliano Carchia

Dennis Rodman tweets JR Smith is the new Dennis Rodman sportando.com/en/usa/nba/137… Should JR Smith be happy for that?

Dennis Rodman

Sending love to the zen master @Phil Jackson and the @New York Knicks for this season. Good luck to @therealjrsmith who is the new Dennis Rodman

Ian Begley

#Knicks say JR Smith has lower back spasms and is probable to return.

Tommy Beer

Knicks announce JR smith has back spasms but is probable to return

Al Iannazzone

"To just play without thinking," JR Smith said, "I think it's going to take some time." Ummm.

Al Iannazzone

JR Smith said again it'll take "at least 2-3 months" to learn triangle.

Chris Herring

JR Smith limped into the locker room a bit, but claims he's just tired, not hurt.

Steve Popper

Ugly performance at MSG - but jeez, folks, I gave you JR Smith opening a bagel shop. You can't have everything.

Chris Herring

Just preseason, but Stoudemire (2-of-9, three turnovers) and JR Smith (0-for-5) both struggling out there quite a bit.

Tina Cervasio

Talked to @JR Smith about @TeamVic injury.The 2 R close friends. Report coming up @MSGNetworks #Knicks #Giants http://t.co/zc4458xqJ4

Tommy Beer

JR Smith, on his Instagram, jokes around about straightening up when Phil Jackson is around -- teamswish's video i.instagram.com/p/uEBYYStfBr/

Tommy Beer

JR Smith, on MSG when asked if he wants to start, says "I want to do what ever Phil Jackson and Derek Fisher says."

Ian Begley

Second unit coming in: Larkin, Hardaway Jr, Stoudemire, JR Smith and Aldrich are on the floor together.

Tommy Beer

JR Smith's stats over his 1st 18 games last season: 10.1 ppg (33.3 FG% and 65 FT%) Over the final 18 gms: 18.6 ppg (47.5 FG% and 80.6 FT%)

Al Iannazzone

JR Smith started and had the final word on the Knicks preseason opener. Stop overthinking and "trust." newsday.com/sports/basketb… #knicks

Chris Herring

Asked JR Smith how long he thought itd take to get comfortable enough to where the offense is 2nd nature to them. "Probably 2 or 3 months."

Fred Kerber

#Knicks DFisher sed nagging aches 2 Shumpert, Hardaway were part but JR Smith starts cuz he "consistent in practice, his work ethic...great"

Gary Lee

!!! RT @netw3rk: During media day, JR Smith said he's excited because the Knicks "can attack from three angles." He gets the triangle.

Fred Kerber

#Knicks Derek Fisher sed JR Smith earned start but sed don't read too much into it, nothing etched in stone
