Steve Popper

Kidd goes berserk calling timeout with 4.7 seconds left.

Marc Berman

Wolves up 24 points late third quarter. First time Minnesota has had a 20-point lead on a club this season. #Knicks

Steve Popper

Wall Street Journal version of pocket dial. RT @Chris Herring: This ish cray.

Chris Herring

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.

Marc Berman

Stoudemire is t'd up after 2nd straight offensive foul. Barking after each one. Above all else, #Knicks don't get respect from officials.

Steve Popper

LeBron did not have Ray Allen to fix up his last-second miscue.

Steve Popper

I hope if San Antonio beats Cleveland that doesn't mean LeBron has to break up the team again.

Chris Herring

Stoudemire replaces Dalembert to start second half.

Chris Herring

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

Al Iannazzone

The Wolves average 5 threes per game. They made eight in the first half.

Chris Herring

They scored 51 pts. Do u think they arent trying? RT @NYKBIGTHREE1: If effort isnt problem why do they play hard only when theyre down big?

Marc Berman

Overheard at halftime in #Wolves season-ticket-holder lounge: "#Knicks haven't been good since Willis Reed left.'' Minnie up 64-51 at break

Steve Popper

Giannis Antetokounmpo doesn't always know what he's doing - but when he does whatever it is he does it's fun to watch.

Chris Herring

The Knicks are lying to themselves, saying they have an effort problem. The real issue is they can't play D: online.wsj.com/articles/effor…

Alan Hahn

Only answer I can come up with is they are poor defenders? RT @Mellow_Me: @Alan Hahn what is the problem? Like why is the defense so weak?

Alan Hahn

Me and Daughtry have halftime on @ESPNNY98_7FM

Steve Popper

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?

Chris Herring

Yes. Probably in the scouting report to take more. MT @CareyTim6: @Chris Herring MIN has lowest rate of three point attempts in the league, no?

Steve Popper

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

Chris Herring

Knicks play much further up on shooters now. No matter; TWolves are 55% (6-of-11) from outside and hold 15-point advantage.

Al Iannazzone

Knicks about to let up 60 in the first half again.

Marc Berman

Minnesota's Ronny Turiaf in gray suit on bench, clapping to "Higher'' during timeout. Trying to set record of playing for every NBA team.

Steve Popper

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

Al Iannazzone

I was just reminded, it's a 2-7 team without three of its top four players.

Chris Herring

This Knicks-Sixers game on Saturday is about to be all-too-interesting for all the wrong reasons, man.

Steve Popper

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

Al Iannazzone

Knicks down 14 to a team without three of its top four players.

Chris Herring

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.

Tina Cervasio

And as I tweet that about Brewer. He runs back to locker room. Yikes. #Knicks #TWolves

Tina Cervasio

Corey Brewer missed shootaround today with flu. needed IV fluids to play. Sure isn't playing like he was sick. Flu going around #TWolves.

Marc Berman

#Knicks down 12 but usually they don't start playing hard until they're trailing by at least 20.

Steve Popper

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?

Marc Berman

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.

Steve Popper

Um, put on the Knicks and Timberwolves at halftime of Nets game here. Jeez.

Chris Herring

The TWolves are really fun.

Al Iannazzone

Amar'e Stoudemire has looked phenomenal offensively against these Wolves.

Chris Herring

JR already has three fouls. He's only been on the court 9 minutes.

Marc Berman

Wiggins with jumper over Hardaway Jr. Bennett with athletic driving dunk. Two 1st overall picks hurting #Knicks back-to-back possessions

Chris Herring

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.

Chris Herring

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.

Jonah Ballow

LaVine about to check-in for MIN. I expect 10 dunks this quarter.

Tina Cervasio

Melo w/heat on right knee keeps it loose.Tape on left.MT @MarcErnay: reading Carmelo'sLEFT knee was issue last night? http://t.co/GwNLCLnm7t

Chris Herring

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.

Marc Berman

Kevin Martin hits 3 and fouled by Shane. #Knicks look sluggish as Minnie takes early 12-6 lead - 3 of 4 from trey-land.

Chris Herring

Minnesota opens 3-of-4 from three-point range. God Bless 'em.

Chris Herring

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

Al Iannazzone

No surprise: The Wolves first basket against the Knicks was a three.

Steve Popper

Nets with a nice tribute to Jason Collins - who is coincidentally good friend with Kidd, who is not getting a nice tribute here.

Steve Popper

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.

Steve Popper

Joe Johnson comes over and gives a hug to Kidd in pregame.

Brian Mahoney

Strong boos for Jason Kidd from the moment he walks onto the floor straight through announcement of starting lineups.

Steve Popper

Pretty universal booing here at Barclays as Kidd is announced.

Steve Popper

Okay, that's not right...At pause in anthem, shout of "Kidd, you suck." Decorum folks.

Steve Popper

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.

Tina Cervasio

Eek. Horrible use of English language in my last tweet, but I needed to get info in. Just watch interview. :) #Knicks on @MSGNetworks

Tina Cervasio

7:30 #Knicks GameNight @MSGNetworks Larkin tells me he takes blame for slow start,he didn't have intensity &maybe taken opponent for granted

Steve Popper

Kidd does have some supports in Brooklyn. Bucks owners are here, along with team president - and two fans wearing Jabari Parker shirts.

Steve Popper

No banners or anything against Kidd right now in Barclays Center - but there also only about 500 fans in here.

Marc Berman

Calderon said he's hoping to get cleared tomorrow for contact and could scrimmage next 2 days. "After that we make a decision.''

Chris Herring

Im confused, too. Little consistency. MT @benchwarmerdan: Acy didnt even play last night & is starting tonight. What Fisher's doing is weird

Marc Berman

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.

Chris Herring

*Jerry Springer audience member throws a chair* RT @Tim Bontemps: Kidd on his relationship w/ Billy King: "There really was no relationship."

Steve Popper

I would imagine that Billy King and Jason Kidd will not be hugging pregame tonight. Or postgame. Or on the golf course.

Al Iannazzone

TFisher said he would do it again anyway, because he'd rather stop the clock and extend the game.

Al Iannazzone

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.

Al Iannazzone

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."

Tina Cervasio

#Knicks coverage begins 7:30 EST @MSGNetworks pregame. Before tip-off I'll report on & clarify Carmelo's knees. Left & Right.Tape & more...

Brian Mahoney

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.

Steve Popper

I've seen Jason Kidd play in a hostile environment. Will be interesting to see how someone coaches angry.

Tina Cervasio

Back to big lineup for #Knicks vs #twolves Larkin, Shumpert, Melo, Acy, Dalembert. Quincy infuses defense that was missing early last night.

Chris Herring

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.

Jonah Ballow

Melo will play tonight in Minnesota. Fisher says, "He's good to go for now."

Chris Herring

Fisher says Larkin, Shumpert, Carmelo, Acy and Dalembert will start tonight vs MIN

Al Iannazzone

Fisher will start Larkin, Shumpert, Melo, Acy, Dalembert tonight.

Steve Popper

Not sure you have a shot with @Al Iannazzone either RT @Alex Raskin: I've done irreparable harm to my relationship with Jason Kidd.

Chris Herring

Fisher says he's not aware of any concern w Melo's knee

Steve Popper

Nice thing about tonight - @Al Iannazzone is not the guy most angry at @Alex Raskin tonight.

Tina Cervasio

#Knicks Jose Calderon ramping up workouts. He has told me no set backs w/calf. Waiting to B cleared 4 full practice. http://t.co/lym4Lb4Mfb

Tina Cervasio

#Knicks Carmelo Anthony warming up. Taking shots early in Minny. No tape on left knee now. More info at gametime. http://t.co/a3Bvao9iuT

Steve Popper

Kidd denied twice that he tried to promote himself over Billy King - said he was just trying to learn to be a coach.

Steve Popper

Kidd welcomed the atmosphere in Brooklyn - said it would be good for his young team to feel what playoff intensity is like.

Steve Popper

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."

Marc Berman

Knicks got break with Milwaukee center Larry Sanders missing last night's game and again tonight with Pekovic out.

Ian Begley

Derek Fisher's defensive strategy includes the idea that 3s "won't beat you." Is this hurting the #Knicks? More: es.pn/1uGW1ZR

Marc Berman

#Knicks rewind: Possibility Bargnani-Calderon attempt debut Saturday vs. Philly as tandem nyp.st/1qsbmNV

Steve Popper

And even if the Knicks could probably use him, @Jason Collins made his retirement official - theplayerstribune.com/jason-collins-…

Marc Berman

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.

Howard Beck

Rajon Rondo and the Celtics are at a crossroads: bleacherreport.com/articles/22728…

Marc Berman

#Knicks rewind: Tonight vs. Wolves strong possibility is last game without Calderon-Bargnani. Could return Saturday nyp.st/1qsbmNV

Chris Herring

I don't blame him at all. Id do that, too. RT @Mike Prada: Both tms will play hard. RT @Dan Steinberg: San Francisco vine.co/v/OJOlFzBWueX

JR Smith says it's "really embarrassing" that #Knicks coaches had to remind players to "play hard" Tuesday. Details: es.pn/1uJh6CY

Al Iannazzone

Carmelo's knee pain isn't new; says his left knee has been bothering him for about three weeks: newsday.com/sports/basketb…

JR Smith calls it "embarrassing" that Fisher had to challenge Knicks to play hard in loss to Bucks: newsday.com/sports/basketb…

Marc Berman

Kidd was mum to a fault on returning to Brooklyn tonight. Called it just "an NBA city". Yeah one that has your jersey hanging.
