Shane Larkin may be freakishly fast - but John Wall just blew by him like he was Amar'e.

Chris Herring

Good outing for Shane Larkin so far. Looking much better in his mins with the 1st string than he had with the 2nd string previously.

Wally Szcerzbiak

Good to c Shane Larkin contribute. He has his hands full tonight w Wall and he's holding his own. #Knicks

Steve Popper

The Larkin, Hardaway lineup is not the defensive line.

As for Prigioni, Fisher likes Larkin's change of speed but says Prigioni had a long summer playing for Argentina & needs him for long haul.

Tina Cervasio

#knicks @Shane Larkin will start at PG tonight has been 1st guard off bench. Fisher says Calderon may still sit Friday-will determine then.

Ian Begley

Derek Fisher tells reporters that Larkin, Hardaway Jr., Carmelo, Jason Smith & Dalembert will start tonight against Washington. #Knicks

Chris Herring

Fish, on why Larkin is gets mins as 2nd-string PG over Pablo: Cites his ability to get into paint, & his change of pace.

Marc Berman

Says Larkin's excessive playing time in preseason is also due to keeping Pablo fresh for regular season and give Shane seasoning

Steve Popper

Fisher said Larkin is young change of pace guy - but resting Pablo for season is part of minutes decisions now.

Michael Scotto

New York Knicks will start Shane Larkin, Tim Hardaway Jr., Carmelo Anthony, Jason Smith and Samuel Dalembert, coach Derek Fisher says.

Steve Popper

Larkin, Hardaway, Jason Smith, Dalembert, Melo are the Knicks starters. Okay.

Al Iannazzone

Marc Berman

Chris Herring

Fisher says Larkin, Hardaway, Melo, Jason Smith and Dalembert will start

Andres Pando

Los Knicks anoche cayeron 120-107 con Milwaukee pero lo de @Pablo Prigioni fue bueno. Fisher sigue poniendo antes a Larkin por Calderón... #NBA

Alan Hahn

Unlikely. RT @DirkDigEm201: He should be the starter by mid season RT @Alan Hahn: Larkin still getting backup PG minutes over Prigioni.

Alan Hahn

Larkin still getting backup PG minutes over Prigioni.

Yahoo Sources: Knicks reach decision on picking up third-year option for guard Shane Larkin. yhoo.it/ZGiBVG

Alan Hahn

Not right away. RT @3fromthe7: @Wally Szcerzbiak @Alan Hahn @BillPidto You guys think Larkin will play more minutes than Pablo this season?

Alan Hahn

Based on what Fish said last night, seems guys like Larkin and Wear get a lot of burn early in preseason for "future" investment.

Chris Herring

Larkin: Coaches tell him they want him to push ball to see what he can find in transition. Fallback option: to start triangle w 17-18 secs

Alan Hahn

Shane Larkin has great potential as a change-of-pace guard, but he may need to sit and watch for a bit with this new offense.

Jonah Ballow

Larkin has been the consistent 2 PG off the bench for the #Knicks in preseason. Prigioni had a scheduled off night on SAT though.

Steve Popper

Shane Larkin is going to kill at the Garden when the Millrose Games begin.

Alan Hahn

OK, so Larkin, Tim, Iman, Acy and Amare is your 2nd unit of energy. RT @harrycalat: @Alan Hahn JR gonna start bro, just ask him.

Alan Hahn

I like Acy with an "energy" 2nd Unit with Larkin, Iman, JR and Amare. Run-n-Gun.

Jonah Ballow

It's not only the end-to-end speed from Larkin but the quicks too.

Jessica Camerato

Pressey & Larkin participated in same workout for #Celtics last summer. Pressey went undrafted, Larkin picked 18th. Guarding each other now.

Marc Berman

Pablo Prigioni is sitting out tonight on a rest day so lot of Shane Larkin. Unsure if it's good or bad. So fast but so turnover-prone.

Ian Begley

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

Adam Zagoria

A #Knicks trainer said Shane Larkin ran the 3/4 court sprint in 3.09 seconds. The trainer said this puts him in the top 5 percent in the NBA

Jonah Ballow

Fisher added, "They've developed a quick bond," when referring to Larkin-Hardaway Jr.-Early. #Knicks

Jonah Ballow

"I think they like being together" @Derek Fisher responded when asked about the trio of Larkin-Hardaway Jr.-Early we saw at SL & last night

Alan Hahn

Of course there were a few things that were alarming, starting with the issue at the PG position. Pablo/Larkin enough?

Steve Popper

I'll say this: if you see Larkin, THJ, Bargnani, Amar'e and Calderon on the court together going to have rework defensive metrics - infinity

Chris Herring

This Larkin-Prigioni pairing is something I'm curious about. Probably works on offense, but really small backcourt for a struggling defense.

Chris Herring

If Fisher goes w Larkin as 2nd-string PG, that unit will be a track team. If he goes w Pablo -- God Bless him -- it becomes a tortoise race
