Okay big brains at Sloan - explain that. Knicks over Raptors. Shved, Amundson, Galloway. Forget it, I'm asking Charles Barkley.

Brian Mahoney

Knicks were about to basically wrap it up until Amundson missed a dunk. Now Raptors within 2, 33 seconds left.

Steve Popper

With that Bargnani dagger I can not believe @Marc Berman is not here to proclaim, "Take that, M..." Ah, I can't do it even as a joke.

Brian Mahoney

Raptors now getting torched by the immortal combination of Shved to Amundson. Knicks up 94-81.

Al Iannazzone

The Knicks are up 13 on Toronto. Their offense looks good and they're defending. Who knew?

Steve Popper

Knicks are in the midst of their best 2-minute stretch since Game 2...Shved, Amundson, Thomas, Larkin, Smith. ... I can't explain it either.

Brian Mahoney

Raptors lose this and they fall into a tie with Chicago for second in the East. Cleveland would be just a half-game back in fourth.

Steve Popper

If the Knicks win a second game in a row they are going to have to extend the Sloan Conference to let the greatest minds figure out how.

Peter Vecsey

I'm at a loss for a response...

Brian Mahoney

Knicks are playing really hard. Slumping Raptors are playing really tight. Knicks 86, Raptors 79, 7:25 to go.

Steve Popper

They mean now? RT @netw3rk: I blacked out for five minutes after this happened RT @ToddNeece: Clyde just compared Shved to Pete Maravich...

Jonah Ballow

Shved autocorrects to Saved...

Steve Popper

In what will forever be known as "The Shved game..."

Alan Hahn

Hope the night gets better. Lol RT @bradSIMONsays: Best part of the Knicks game ? Running into @Alan Hahn http://t.co/mamVg4jMpn

Steve Popper

Fan just hit a $10,000 half court shot - the first to do that since J.R. Smith used to do it for a little more money here.

Brian Mahoney

Fan banks in a halfcourt shot for $10,000. MSG crowd goes nuts. Sign him up whether he knows the triangle or not.

Jonah Ballow

Dude hit half court shot at MSG for 10K. Time to go home.

Steve Popper

Cleanthony Early met at rim on dunk attempt by James Johnson and sent to the floor.

DeRozen booed by both Knicks and Raptors fans after missing breakaway 360 dunk attempt.

Brian Mahoney

Wow! DeRozan just showboated his way to a missed layup. Tried a wide-open 360 on the break and botched it.

Ian Begley

The #Knicks just held a nice video tribute for Anthony Mason under the heading, "Gone but not forgotten."

Tina Cervasio

#Knicks & #Raptors Players watching in-arena tribute & video bio voiced by @AlTrautwig during 1st t.o. ~Garden applause follows.

Steve Popper

Very nice video tribute to Anthony Mason on the board at MSG during first timeout.

Al Iannazzone

Now a video tribute for Mason

Steve Popper

Really was a nice tribute to Mason, but sad that it was before anthems - huge swathes of empty seats at the Garden for it.

Steve Popper

Now lots of laughter from the crowd as Bargnani has shot blocked - again, can't figure out if it's Raptors or Knicks fans.

Steve Popper

Lots of Raptors fans at MSG tonight - but can't tell whether it's pro-Raps or anti-Bargs as fans boo him at FT line.

Ian Begley

There's an audible group of Raptors fans at MSG for tonight's #Knicks-Raptors game. Bargnani is getting booed while on the free throw line.

Ian Begley

There's an audible "Let's go Raptors" chant here at MSG for #Knicks-Raptors.

Brian Mahoney

Moment of silence before Knicks' game vs. Raptors. Many former Knicks posted about him on Twitter today, extremely popular within franchise.

Al Iannazzone

The Heat held a moment of silence for Anthony Mason. He made his only All-Star team with Miami.

Ian Begley

#Knicks hold a moment of silence for the late Anthony Mason before tonight's game against Toronto. http://t.co/ygbTpaoWjz

Moment of silence for Anthony Mason at MSG.

Steve Popper

Moment of silence for Anthony Mason at MSG.

Brian Mahoney

Lowry is shooting under 30 percent in five games since the All-Star break. Went without an assist Friday for first time ever as a starter.

Alan Hahn

Spoke with Patrick Ewing this morning. Here is his statement on the passing of Anthony Mason (via @MSGNetworks): http://t.co/iGqPBuRg7V

Brian Mahoney

Raptors say Greivis Vasquez will start tonight against Knicks in place of Lowry (rest).

Howard Beck

If @Daryl Morey is "Dork Elvis," as @Bill Simmons calls him, I believe that makes Battier "Dork Elvis Jr."

Howard Beck

Three biggest celebs at Sloan conf, based on groupie followings: Shane Battier, Mike D'Antoni, Sam Hinkie. They were mobbed at all times.

Howard Beck

Big show tomorrow: Mike D'Antoni, @KC Johnson and @jrwalk22, joining us on NBA Sunday Tip, 9-11a on SiriusXM BR radio. Tune in!

Brian Mahoney

And one of those spots will be tonight. Lowry sits tonight at Knicks.

Brian Mahoney

Dwane Casey said with Lowry looking banged up they've talked about trying to find him a spot for rest at some point.

Frank Isola

I'm picking Karl-Anthony Towns first overall.

Tina Cervasio

Derek Fisher speaks at length about Anthony Mason. Watch @MSGNetworks starting 6:30 for full coverage of #Knicks recognizing MASE tonight.

Tina Cervasio

No timetable established yet on Calderon & strained left Achilles. #Knicks Starters v TOR: Galloway, Hardaway, Early, Amundson, Bargnani

Al Iannazzone

Fisher said Bargnani "was very loud and clear about how much he likes to start" with his double-double in Detroit.

Steve Popper

Knicks starting same lineup as Friday - team will recognize Anthony Mason prior to the game.

Al Iannazzone

Bargnani starting again tonight

Al Iannazzone

Fisher on Mason: "He embodied a lot of what we're trying to do here."

Fisher opens up his pregame press conference speaking about Anthony Mason, and what he meant to the city and organization.

#Knicks president Phil Jackson is at the Kentucky-Arkansas game tonight. NYK is expected to have a top draft pick in June's draft.

Ex-#Knicks guard Iman Shumpert offers his thoughts on Anthony Mason via his Instagram account: instagram.com/p/zqEwCcprff/

My favorite Anthony Mason memory: night he was ejected 4 fighting from Garden's Wheelchair Classic Epitomized his competitive spirit...

Knicks say MRI of Jose Calderon’s left Achilles confirmed a strain. He will not dress for tonight’s home game versus Toronto.”

Tina Cervasio

#Knicks say an MRI reveals Jose Calderon’s left Achilles is a strain. He will not dress tonight versus Toronto.

Knicks are gonna have a bunch of good options if they finish top-3. People who think Okafor or bust haven't watched these other guys play.

Ian Begley

Here is Carmelo Anthony's tribute to Anthony Mason, via his Instagram account: instagram.com/p/zp-1UPKNlr/

Steve Popper

From the Hornets - MJ and Patrick on Mason. http://t.co/4alEx9M4t6

Jared Zwerling

To clear things up, the Kings ask for George Karl's opinion on personnel decisions, but he's not involved in final say. Focus is coaching.

Jonah Ballow

Kobe on the Triangle: “Phil’s influence on the game is more present than you think.” He adds, the Spurs use a ton of Triangle elements.

Jonah Ballow

Finally watching Kobe on Grantland. Great stuff. He says of Fisher & Jackson: “They figure it out. It’s a process."

Tina Cervasio

Expecting to see many #14 jerseys at Madison Square Garden tonight. I'm breaking out my big (faux)… instagram.com/p/zp57TLAkPr/

Steve Popper

From a friend, perhaps best description of Anthony Mason - A consummate New Yorker.

Allan Houston

Loving Father..Passionate Competitor..Committed Compadre #Knick4Eternity Peace & Strength to The Mason Family!

Allan Houston

Our Lives on earth are fleeting..I know Mase is now in the Ultimate Post Season..Eternity w the Lord!

Jared Zwerling

Morey and Myers have fun debate as to who's the MVP: Harden or Curry. Tellem steps in "Russ Westbrook is better than both of them." (laughs)

Jared Zwerling

Morey and Myers mention analytics have less of an impact in free agency. Comes down to more like putting a house on the market -- the price.

Frank Isola

In the 90's, no one wrote more about Mason than Mark Kriegel. Add Mase's HS coach Kenny Fiedler to the mix and you had 3 New York characters

Jonah Ballow

I’m not from NY but in my 4yrs w/ the team I got a true sense of the love & respect for Big Mase. What a special personality & player.

Marc Berman

Phil Jackson coached against Mase in Bulls wars and said in statement "nobody fiercer." Touché

Ian Begley

#Knicks GM Steve Mills: "All of us here at the New York Knicks will remember Mase and cherish his legacy." http://t.co/JUMdXOYeIC

#Knicks president Phil Jackson: "As a competitor, there was none fiercer than Anthony Mason....Rest in peace, Mase." http://t.co/QJqVN5DhI0

Ewing continued: "I will remember him for his strength, determination & perseverance. My thoughts are with his family. May he rest in peace"

Frank Isola

Ewing continued:.."Mase came to play every night and was always ready to go to battle with me every time we stepped on the court together...

Frank Isola

Patrick Ewing: "My heart is heavy after learning we lost Anthony Mason last night. We were teammates on the Knicks for five great seasons..

Ian Begley

#Knicks great Patrick Ewing on Anthony Mason: "Mase came to play every night and was always ready to go to battle with me."

Frank Isola

Now this is a starting 5. "We were either gonna win the game or win the fight." RIP Anthony Mason. http://t.co/WWKo6wL7bW

Frank Isola

Imagine the toughness of a starting five of Ewing, Oakley, Mason, Starks and Harper. They didn't take recovery days...they gave them.

Frank Isola

JVG said Paul Silas coached the Knicks summer league team with Mason, Starks & Greg Anthony and it was a "total wipe out. Total domination."

Frank Isola

Pat Riley and Anthony Mason came together at the perfect time. Two self-made, stubborn fighters who gave the 90's Knicks an edge.

Steve Popper

Covering those Knicks teams in the 90's, the stars were Ewing and Riley - but Mason and Starks were the perfect hungry complements.

Frank Isola

Charles Oakley told me that Anthony Mason helped create the identity of the 90's Knicks. "He was as tough as they come," Oakley said.

Tina Cervasio

Heartbreaking to hear about the passing of former #Knicks Anthony Mason. His son @YuNgMaseJr explains more here: http://t.co/ygC9ACriWz

Frank Isola

Jeff Van Gundy again told the story of the first practice when Mason and Xavier McDaniel got into a fight. "It set the tone for the season."

Frank Isola

Derek Harper also said of Anthony Mason's passing: "I tried to reach out to him this week to tell him I love him. It's incredibly sad."
