Jose out of his seat on bench, in Shane Larkin's ear during free throws, instructing him on some things. Good to see.
Roddy. DoJo. Cunningham. Larkin. Yeah, guess I'm cool with the Mavs giving up some first-round picks to get a star.
Larkin starting 2Q. Fisher going small.
Shane Larkin revenge game.
Melo (recovery), Larkin (illness), JR (l.plantar fascia), Pablo (sore ankle), Shumpert (left shoulder) & Amar'e (recovery) did not practice
Knicks say Carmelo and Amare had recovery days; JR, Shumpert and Prigioni (sore right ankle) and Larkin (illness) did not practice.
If the Spurs could guard either Tim Hardaway's kid or Barry Larkin's kid, they'd be running away with this one.
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
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."
Shane Larkin flubs the layup, after lane opens. Blatt calls a timeout, when Irving clearly wanted to keep the play going.
Good job on defending those screens from Larkin/Shump.
Fisher going with Larkin, Calderon, Shump, Melo, Stoudemire down the stretch here.
I do believe Joe Johnson just caught a murder charge with his Eurostep on Shane Larkin http://t.co/bh7HzcHgIC
Fisher seems to have tightened rotation some; with JR in particular. But curious as to why Larkin is seeing mins here rather than Pablo.
Larkin knows these rims. #3
Looks like Fisher is going to stick w/ 3-guard lineup as Prigioni and Larkin check-in.
This is the Tyson Revenge Game. and the Dalembert Revenge Game. And the Jose Revenge Game. And the Shane Larkin Revenge Game.
Larkin starts 2nd half. Fisher going w/ 3 guards to counter loss of Melo (back spasms).
Shane Larkin starts the second half in a backcourt with Calderon. Shumpert moves to the 3. Canaan is back for the Rockets.
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.
Not that there are a ton of good options, but this defensive lineup -- Larkin, JR, Hardaway, Jason Smith and Amare -- is not very imposing.
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.
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
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."
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."
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.
