LOL. Hardaway was THIS close to accidentally punching the ref while celebrating that basket.

Keith Pompey

#Knicks lead 45-29 at half. @Nerlens Noel has 8 points, 5 rebounds and two steals. Tim Hardaway Jr and Jason Smith lead Knicks with 8 each

Marc Berman

Knicks 3 of 23 from 3-point land. Hardaway brutal at 2 of 12.

Chris Herring

Two things: 1) Hardaway, Jr. often pumpfakes himself into a worse position than the one he starts with. 2) Where is Cleanthony Early?

Ian Begley

#Knicks' F Carmelo Anthony says he sees "a more confident" Tim Hardaway Jr. so far this season. More here: es.pn/1tSBUTy

Al Iannazzone

Hardaway Jr. says he wants to be a complete player and is working on his defense. Fisher already is a fan: newsday.com/sports/basketb…

Ian Begley

Tim Hardaway Jr. on his mindset this year: "Just really really trying to concentrate on the defensive end, whatever it takes to get better."

A. Sherrod Blakely

Ian Begley

Small sample: lineup of Calderon, Amar'e, Carmelo, Stoudemire, Acy and Hardaway Jr. allowed 11 points in the opening 3:15 of the 3rd quarter

Steve Popper

I know there's a lot of talk about the triangle, but there is yet to be a shape that can get Hardaway to stop shooting.

Al Iannazzone

Amar'e Stoudemire and Tim Hardaway Jr. replace Sam Dalembert and Iman Shumpert to start the third quarter.

Ian Begley

Amar'e Stoudemire and Tim Hardaway Jr. replace Samuel Dalembert and Iman Shumpert in the lineup to start the third quarter. #Knicks

Jonah Ballow

Hardaway Jr. & Stoudemire get the start in the 2nd half next to Calderon, Melo, & Acy. #Knicks

Chris Herring

Hardaway and Stoudemire start the second half in place of Shumpert and Dalembert.

Chris Herring

Stoudemire and Hardaway getting assists is the clearest indication that the triangle offense is magical.

Ian Begley

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

Tim MacMahon

Dirk also played with Tim Hardaway Jr.'s dad.

Ian Begley

Derek Fisher suggests that #Knicks can play Tim Hardaway Jr., Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith in the same lineup at times this season.

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

Tim Hardaway, Jr. thought he had a steal until Marcus Thornton literally ripped the ball out of hands and then Thornton gets the finish!

Gary Washburn

#celtics lead #knicks 54-52 at the half. Sullinger 11, Smart 10 and Turner 8. Melo and Hardaway 10 each for NYK

Ian Begley

FWIW: Tim Hardaway Jr. is getting some minutes with the other four players who started tonight's game.

Emily Austen

The #Celtics trail the #Knicks 31-27. However, Boston is shooting 50% - Bass & Olynyk: 6 pts; Sullinger & Smart: 5 pts; Hardaway, Jr. 10pts.

Ian Begley

#Knicks second unit tonight is Amare, Cleanthony, Hardaway Jr, Larkin and Acy.

Steve Popper

Second unit in as a unit - Larkin, Early, Acy, Amare and Hardaway Jr. And a turnover starts this one, too.

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"

Tina Cervasio

Fisher said JR starting is combo of work ethic &picking up system"as good as anyone"plus Shump &Hardaway not full strength in camp. #Knicks

Fred Kerber

No Shumpert (hamstring) for #Knicks but Hardaway available

Chris Herring

Fisher says Shumpert and Hardaway's injuries had a role in him choosing to start JR tonight.

Marc Berman

Fisher thinks Shumpert, Hardaway, Stoudemire will play tomorrow in preseason opener after getting thru practice swimmingly.

Al Iannazzone

Fisher said he hopes Amar'e, Shumpert and Hardaway are all available tomorrow. He said they looked good today.

Ohm Youngmisuk

Shumpert and Hardaway Jr. both on floor practicing with teammates during media portion of practice. Same for Amar'e.

Al Iannazzone

Fisher is not ruling out Shumpert or Hardaway playing Wednesday.

Steve Popper

Fisher said Shumpert hamstring issue - Hardaway Jr. a hip problem. Shumpert was running drills after scrimmage, dunking, running, etc.

Ohm Youngmisuk

Shumpert and Hardaway Jr. still could play this week. Knicks have 2 preseason games this week. Wait and see approach for Fisher.

Ohm Youngmisuk

Fisher says Shumpert has a hamstring ailment. Hardaway Jr has some inflammation in hip. Fisher says NYK is being cautious with both

Al Iannazzone

Fisher said Shumpert has a hamstring issue and Hardaway a hip issue.

Chris Herring

Fisher: Shumpert's hamstring is bothering him some, and that Hardaway's hip has hampered him. That's why they rested during contact portions

Marc Berman

Shumpert, Hardaway and Stoudemire not doing scrimmage or contact. All have had nagging injuries since West Point.
