Kidd goes berserk calling timeout with 4.7 seconds left.
This ish cray.
Shumpert with more foul trouble. 4th foul with five and a half minutes left in the 3Q. Couldn't stay in front of Kevin Martin.
LeBron did not have Ray Allen to fix up his last-second miscue.
I hope if San Antonio beats Cleveland that doesn't mean LeBron has to break up the team again.
Stoudemire replaces Dalembert to start second half.
Some folks act as if its always NYKs lockdown defense whenever the other team has a dry spell. Young offenses tighten up down the stretch
The Wolves average 5 threes per game. They made eight in the first half.
Giannis Antetokounmpo doesn't always know what he's doing - but when he does whatever it is he does it's fun to watch.
What if I told you Melo would have 18 and Amar'e 17 in a half - and Knicks would be down 13 to one of worst teams in league?
I'm sure when the Knicks were hyping return of Phil and a throwback to the old days there was no talk about giving 60+ in a half to Twolves
Knicks play much further up on shooters now. No matter; TWolves are 55% (6-of-11) from outside and hold 15-point advantage.
Knicks about to let up 60 in the first half again.
Minnesota's Ronny Turiaf in gray suit on bench, clapping to "Higher'' during timeout. Trying to set record of playing for every NBA team.
Also Fisher didn't have to "reassign" his top assistant. At least not yet. But 3 starters out on NBA's 3rd worst team and Knicks down 14
I was just reminded, it's a 2-7 team without three of its top four players.
This Knicks-Sixers game on Saturday is about to be all-too-interesting for all the wrong reasons, man.
I think Fisher will be a good coach - but only difference from his first month and Kidd's is that he is the hire of the team prez. Just ugly
Knicks down 14 to a team without three of its top four players.
Carmelo with 16 points on 6-of-8 shooting to start. Stoudemire with 11 on 5-of-7 from the field. Knicks still down by 8 pts, tho. Thats bad.
So no Rubio, no Pekovic - and it's not even Wiggins. What we turn on to is Corey Brewer, Robbie Hummel and Shabazz Muhammed going wild?
Wolves putting on a show. Brewer alley-oop for Shabazz Muhammad on break for monstrous dunk. Minnie up 42-32 with 7:33 left in half.
Um, put on the Knicks and Timberwolves at halftime of Nets game here. Jeez.
The TWolves are really fun.
Amar'e Stoudemire has looked phenomenal offensively against these Wolves.
JR already has three fouls. He's only been on the court 9 minutes.
Knicks have given up 10 baskets in the final 2 seconds of a period this season. Have gotta get better at closing out quarters each night.
Stoudemire gets off to a nice start here; 3-for-3 with 7 points. Knicks give up basket to end quarter, tho, and TWolves lead 27-25 after 1Q.
LaVine about to check-in for MIN. I expect 10 dunks this quarter.
Knick defense has allowed 37% or better from three-pt range in 11 straight games. The NBA-record is 13 games at 37% or better.
Minnesota opens 3-of-4 from three-point range. God Bless 'em.
Acy reminds me of a forward's version of 2013 Shump. Gets good looks, but doesn't make them consistently enough to stay on floor for defense
No surprise: The Wolves first basket against the Knicks was a three.
Nets with a nice tribute to Jason Collins - who is coincidentally good friend with Kidd, who is not getting a nice tribute here.
Giannis just stole a pass - deflected it and then stretched his arm about 20 feet to scoop it up before it went out of bounds.
Joe Johnson comes over and gives a hug to Kidd in pregame.
Strong boos for Jason Kidd from the moment he walks onto the floor straight through announcement of starting lineups.
Pretty universal booing here at Barclays as Kidd is announced.
Okay, that's not right...At pause in anthem, shout of "Kidd, you suck." Decorum folks.
Kidd booed by fans as he comes out of the tunnel. Cheers from his assistant coaches nearly as loud since they almost outnumber the crowd.
Kidd does have some supports in Brooklyn. Bucks owners are here, along with team president - and two fans wearing Jabari Parker shirts.
No banners or anything against Kidd right now in Barclays Center - but there also only about 500 fans in here.
Calderon said he's hoping to get cleared tomorrow for contact and could scrimmage next 2 days. "After that we make a decision.''
On last night Hardaway foul down 3, Fisher said they thought had foul to give. But even if not, he likes to foul there to extend game.
I would imagine that Billy King and Jason Kidd will not be hugging pregame tonight. Or postgame. Or on the golf course.
TFisher said he would do it again anyway, because he'd rather stop the clock and extend the game.
Fisher told Hardaway Jr to foul with Knicks down 3 with under 30 leftt last night, thinking he had foul to give. But they didn't.
Fisher was asked about Shumpert last night, and he said "I thought there was more than one bright spot even though we lost the game."
If the Nets didn't consider firing Jason Kidd last December, something would've been wrong with them. He was a disaster at the start.
I've seen Jason Kidd play in a hostile environment. Will be interesting to see how someone coaches angry.
Fisher, on Hardaway's ill-advised foul yesterday w Knicks down 3 points: Coaching staff wanted a foul, thinking they had one more to give.
Melo will play tonight in Minnesota. Fisher says, "He's good to go for now."
Fisher says Larkin, Shumpert, Carmelo, Acy and Dalembert will start tonight vs MIN
Fisher will start Larkin, Shumpert, Melo, Acy, Dalembert tonight.
Fisher says he's not aware of any concern w Melo's knee
Kidd denied twice that he tried to promote himself over Billy King - said he was just trying to learn to be a coach.
Kidd welcomed the atmosphere in Brooklyn - said it would be good for his young team to feel what playoff intensity is like.
Kidd edgy throughout his press conference" admitted he felt Nets were trying to fire him "Showed me what kind of people I was dealing with."
Knicks got break with Milwaukee center Larry Sanders missing last night's game and again tonight with Pekovic out.
Carmelo Anthony is not on the injury report so expect him to play tonight vs. Minnie. After losing 8 of 9, no time to rest it.
Kidd was mum to a fault on returning to Brooklyn tonight. Called it just "an NBA city". Yeah one that has your jersey hanging.
