Larkin said the #Knicks "started chasing shots" and failed to create spacing late in the first quarter when Chicago made its run.

Chris Herring

Shane Larkin: "We started going one-on-one. And as we saw in the preseason, when we do that, we're not very good."

Adam Zagoria

Some #Knicks fans sitting their paid $500 to watch Shane Larkin, Tim Hardaway, Quincy Acy, Travis Wear and Cole Aldrich losing by 30.

Steve Popper

Kind of troubling that Shane Larkin's skill is speed and on opening night two PG's are running circles around him.

Chris Herring

One thing that bugs me: For as often as Larkin starts fast breaks, never seems like NYK gets any shots out of it. He's not aggressive enough

Chris Herring

Can't take much from tonight, since Larkin won't usually start. But aside from NYKs defense, their bench is what concerns me most this year.

Jonah Ballow

J.R. Smith comes off the bench & now we have the Larkin/Smith backcourt.

Ian Begley

Iman Shumpert, guarding Derrick Rose, picks up 2 fouls in five minutes. Prigioni subs in, playing alongside Larkin. That's a short backcourt

Jonah Ballow

With 2 early fouls on Shump, Fisher elects to go with the 2 PG backcourt — Larkin/Pablo.

Wally Szcerzbiak

Shane Larkin looks quicker and faster than Derrick Rose. #Knicks

Ohm Youngmisuk

DRose got some rust to shake off. Shane Larkin shook him with a crossover and Melo later strips him on a drive.

Julian Mozo

#NBA No juega Calderón (pantorilla) y Fisher elige a Larkin como base titular. Buen día para que Prigioni rinda y cambie esa idea del DT.

Marc Berman

Fisher Era off to a 8-2 start. Larkin, Melo Stoudemire (2) with buckets after four minutes. Timeout Thibs.

Jonah Ballow

Shump starting on Rose. On the opposite side, Rose on Larkin.

Adam Zagoria

Raise your hand if you had Shane Larkin with the Knicks' first 2 points of the 2014-15 season

Joe Cowley

Like Rubio last week, Larkin going right at Rose.

Jonah Ballow

News & Notes ICYMI for tonight's gm: Stoudemire in the starting lineup at the 4, Larkin replacing Calderon (calf), Butler out for CHI.

David Baumann

Orlando native Shane Larkin starting for the #NYK vs. #CHI tonight. Good luck to Shane against DRose. 8pm game. tunein.com/radio/810-CBS-…

Scott Cacciola

Fisher on Calderon at about 6:30 p.m.: "He's good to go." Now, he will not dress because of strained calf. Larkin gets the start.

Tina Cervasio

Ready for live report on @MSGNetworks on breaking news Calderon out w strained calf. Larkin will start. #Knicks http://t.co/WHTbpusjNh

Joe Cowley

Dunleavy will be making the visit to "Melo Island.'' Good luck, Dun. Hinrich on Shumpert and Rose on Shane Larkin.

Adam Zagoria

Not a good sign for #Knicks on opening night that starting PG Jose Calderon isn't playing (calf.) Shane Larkin starts instead.

Simone Sandri

Dopo il forfait (annunciatissimo...) del Mago, quello a sorpresa di Calderon...Fisher sceglie Stat da 4 e Larkin in regia..vantaggio Bulls..

John Schuhmann

Calderon out for the Knicks. Shane Larkin starting vs. Derrick Rose.

Fabian Garcia

Por otro lado, Calderón no estará disponible en el debut de los Knicks, pero llamativamente, Larkin saldrá de titular y no Prigioni.

Ian Begley

Shane Larkin said he just found out that he was starting a few minutes ago. #Knicks

Steve Popper

Knicks starting lineup didn't last long - Jose Calderon scratched with strained right calf - and Shane Larkin gets the start.

Tina Cervasio

Change for #Knicks -- Calderon will now NOT play. I did see him run out to warm up. But he will now not dress. Larkin will start at PG

Michael Scotto

Jose Calderon is OUT tonight for the Knicks due to a strained right calf. Shane Larkin will start at point guard tonight against the Bulls.

Chris Herring

Wow. RT @Ian Begley: Jose Calderon is a late scratch due to a calf injury. Shane Larkin will start.

Ian Begley

Jose Calderon is a late scratch due to a calf injury. Shane Larkin will start. #Knicks

Jonah Ballow

Larkin gets the starting nod. I talked to him about being ready for the moment: youtube.com/watch?v=1rcHKJ…

Al Iannazzone

Knicks say Calderon is out tonight due to the calf injury. Shane Larkin will start

Marc Berman

#Knicks notes: Calderon expected to start with Shump-Melo-Jas.Smith-Sam; Pass on Larkin's option; Fish talks Gasol nyp.st/1sBFaBH

Ian Begley

#Knicks pick up Hardaway Jr.'s 3rd-year option. No word yet on Larkin's option or Shumpert's extension. Details: espn.go.com/new-york/nba/s…

Alan Hahn

No surprise here: #Knicks exercise the third-year option for Hardaway Jr. Will they do the same for Shane Larkin?

Ian Begley

The #Knicks announce that they have exercised their option for the 2015-16 season for Tim Hardaway Jr. Nothing on Shane Larkin yet.

Kurt Helin

Report: Knicks reconsidering, now leaning toward declining Shane Larkin’s option dlvr.it/7L99cH

Adrian Wojnarowski

Knicks could be changing course on picking up Shane Larkin 2015-'16 option, now leaning toward the cap space, sources say. Deadline Friday.

Marc Berman

#Knicks end preseason at 3-4 with a late Larkin turnover and 83-80 loss to Raptors. Bring on Da #Bulls.

Doug Smith

Shane Larkin of Knicks (who I have yet to call Barry) just hit a shot "pour trois" according to Bell Centre PA.

Alan Hahn

Seems Jose/Shane. RT @CrookedBoxer: @Alan Hahn #ASKALAN PG minutes? Jose, Larkin and Il Pope? Larkin fronts running unit, 1st off bench?

Alan Hahn

I think Pablo is insurance. RT @KingJamesD7: @Alan Hahn do you see Larkin playing a big role as # 2 guard or does Prigioni get nod? #AskAlan

Alan Hahn

Being tutored. Baby steps. RT @pav8490: @Alan Hahn #AskAlan I've been unimpressed with Larkin. Should we be concerned?

Tina Cervasio

Bonjour From Montreal. #Knicks Starters are Larkin, Shumpert, Anthony, Jason Smith, Dalembert. Don't want to risk further inj w Calderon.
