Marc Berman

Jose out of his seat on bench, in Shane Larkin's ear during free throws, instructing him on some things. Good to see.

Michael Dugat

Roddy. DoJo. Cunningham. Larkin. Yeah, guess I'm cool with the Mavs giving up some first-round picks to get a star.

Jonah Ballow

Larkin starting 2Q. Fisher going small.

Earl K. Sneed

Somehow Shane Larkin got switched on B-Wright. It didn't end well for young Mr. Larkin. @Dallas Mavericks lead 42-34 with 8:10 in the half.

Wally Szcerzbiak

Shane Larkin has totally changed the momentum of game with his speed and energy. #Knicks

Scott Cacciola

Shane Larkin revenge game.

Earl K. Sneed

The young boys, @shanelarkin_3 & @realrickledo1 reunited in NYC... @ Madison Square Garden instagram.com/p/wr3hnxtksO/

Kurt Helin

Shane Larkin, a second thought as Knicks chase star free agents, trying to find his own way dlvr.it/7r7BVY

Chris Herring

The other reason the deal looks bad. MT @CrookedBoxer: I like Larkin. Why wouldn't they pick up his option for next year? It was so cheap.

Ohm Youngmisuk

Melo (recovery), Larkin (illness), JR (l.plantar fascia), Pablo (sore ankle), Shumpert (left shoulder) & Amar'e (recovery) did not practice

Fred Kerber

#Knicks practiced sort of. No Anthony orStoudemire (recovery); Shumpert (shoulder) Larkin (sick) JR Smith (foot) Prigioni(ankle)

Al Iannazzone

Knicks say Carmelo and Amare had recovery days; JR, Shumpert and Prigioni (sore right ankle) and Larkin (illness) did not practice.

Ian Begley

Shane Larkin says #Knicks have added more screens into the offense over the last two games. May have been what you saw late vs. Toronto

Jeff McDonald

If the Spurs could guard either Tim Hardaway's kid or Barry Larkin's kid, they'd be running away with this one.

Paul Garcia

Well at least the Knicks role players work on shots in warm-ups from the Triangle. NY coaching staff working with Shane Larkin on said shots

Steve Kyler

Al Iannazzone

Fisher walked out onto midcourt to get TO he wanted and says he got shot he wanted - A Shane Larkin floater: newsday.com/sports/basketb…

Ian Begley

Larkin on his miss in the 4th: "That was a shot, if I shoot 100 times I’m going to make it 90 times. It just got a little away from me."

Ethan J. Skolnick

Shane Larkin flubs the layup, after lane opens. Blatt calls a timeout, when Irving clearly wanted to keep the play going.

Michael Lee

Did Derek Fisher go through all of this to draw up a play for Shane Larkin? vine.co/v/OvUiZX0VZzY

Jonah Ballow

Good job on defending those screens from Larkin/Shump.

Jonah Ballow

Fisher going with Larkin, Calderon, Shump, Melo, Stoudemire down the stretch here.

Amin Elhassan

I do believe Joe Johnson just caught a murder charge with his Eurostep on Shane Larkin http://t.co/bh7HzcHgIC

Chris Herring

Fisher seems to have tightened rotation some; with JR in particular. But curious as to why Larkin is seeing mins here rather than Pablo.

Marc Berman

Rick Carlisle is tired of hearing he wouldn't play Shane Larkin as rookie & took it out on MSGN's Tina Cervasio nyp.st/1yeui2y

Marc Berman

Mavs coach Rick Carlisle tries to set record straight on Shane Larkin in brusque exchange with MSGN's Tina Cervasio nyp.st/1yeui2y

Marc Berman

Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle bristles when Shane Larkin's name came up, takes shot at NYC media, MSG Network nyp.st/1yeui2y

Earl K. Sneed

This Barea vs. Larkin matchup should give short guys everywhere inspiration. #DALvsNYK

Dwain Price

Larkin knows these rims. #3

Dwain Price

JJ must have said "I got a little one on me.'' #Larkin

Jonah Ballow

Looks like Fisher is going to stick w/ 3-guard lineup as Prigioni and Larkin check-in.

Steve Popper

Wayne Ellington feels left out RT @Scott Cacciola: Tyson Revenge Game. Dalembert Revenge Game. Jose Revenge Game. Shane Larkin Revenge Game.

Scott Cacciola

This is the Tyson Revenge Game. and the Dalembert Revenge Game. And the Jose Revenge Game. And the Shane Larkin Revenge Game.

Marc Berman

Hardaway 3-pointer jolts #Knicks into 78-72 lead with 8:50 left. Melo came out with club down 11. Guys stepping up like Wear, Larkin.

Jonah Ballow

Larkin starts 2nd half. Fisher going w/ 3 guards to counter loss of Melo (back spasms).

Jonathan Feigen

Shane Larkin starts the second half in a backcourt with Calderon. Shumpert moves to the 3. Canaan is back for the Rockets.

Marc Berman

Carmelo would've fit right in with #Rockets - injured. Houston missing 3 starters. No Melo to start 2nd half. Larkin.

Chris Herring

Carmelo never came back out to the court after walking off with back issues in the first half. Larkin starts 2nd half in his place.

Chris Herring

Not that there are a ton of good options, but this defensive lineup -- Larkin, JR, Hardaway, Jason Smith and Amare -- is not very imposing.

Jonah Ballow

Larkin first PG off the bench for #Knicks tonight. He did not play in last gm vs. PHI.

Ira Winderman

Sunday notes: A former Heat player and the battle to avert an NBA lockout bit.ly/11GKddS plus LeBron, Larkin, more.

Julian Mozo

#NBA Algo de alivio para Knicks: 91-83 a Philadelphia (0-13). Prigioni fue base suplente (no jugo Larkin) y sumo 8 pts, 3 reb y 2as en 27m

Chris Herring

Decision to start Larkin was always sort of odd. Shane is probs better w 1st unit than 2nd. But Pablo had far more in common w/ Calderon.

Chris Herring

Interesting/weird to see Larkin not play at all after being the starting PG for 3 weeks. Fisher's rotations have been unpredictable thus far

Ian Begley

Fisher says Calderon, Shumpert, Carmelo, Acy and Dalembert will start tonight. Not clear if Pablo or Larkin will backup Calderon. #Knicks

Ira Winderman

Sunday notes on a Saturday: A former Heat player and the battle to avert an NBA lockout bit.ly/11GKddS plus LeBron, Larkin, more.

Ian Begley

Shane Larkin: "We can't blame everything on the triangle. We just have to go out & play hard. The last couple games, we've been outhustled."

Chris Herring

Larkin, on criticism abt NYK still isolating too much: "If you have Melo on your tm & you don't ISO X amt of times, you aren't very smart."

Chris Herring

There's 20,000 for Melo. Hits a triple off a pass from Shane Larkin that puts him at 20,002 points for his career. 40th player to reach 20K.
