HoopsHype New York Knicks twitter
Lil guys should stay in the lil guy lane!
Best thing about having to go to Canada for work: Netflix in Canada streams Fresh Prince episodes.
LOL. That TD run was straight-up awesome.
Seeing many tweets about Cardinals' QB play, but not really any worse than the guy Jaworski hyped as one of the best ever did vs Seattle.
Kobe, who was drafted just a year before Duncan, has played in 15 Christmas games to Duncan's 4.
Tim Duncan will play in just his 5th Christmas game. Shows how much the Spurs were ignored for marquee TV time during much of his career.
No idea the record for this, but Jarrett Jack had a double-double for his 6th team tonight. Nets, Cavs, Warriors, Hornets, Blazers, Raptors.
Sixers knock off Orlando, which means the Knicks are now officially tied with Philly for last place in the standings.
Sounds funny, bc I know none of those three are good 2nd options. But as little talent as the Knicks have, looks even worse w/out those guys
Melo: "Got 3 days to kind of get away from it for a bit ... to kind of decompress and try to get into the holiday spirit a little bit."
This weekend marked 1st time in Melo's 250-gm NYK career that he'd taken the court without Amar'e, JR or Shumpert or playing alongside him
Melo said at times it becomes difficult to generate power for different moves he uses on offense. And it's sometimes tough to shoot, he says
Asked Melo where his knee bothers him most on defense (at SF, or at PF?). Said it impacts him far more on offense; even on wide-open shots.
Melo, on how far the Knicks have fallen since their 54-win season: "I sit back and think about that sometimes." Says it's hard to believe.
Carmelo on being 5-25: "It doesn't seem real."
Also, Melo wearing a beanie today. No top hat, or fedora. This is different.
Melo, on how he feels physically: "A little beat up; a little tired." Has played 78 mins over past two days on sore, troublesome left knee
I feel bad pointing this out, but the GSW could lose every game they play until Feb. 3 and still not have as many losses as the Knicks.
Knicks' loss in TOR drops NY 20 gms under .500. Has been 27 yrs since an NBA team has rebounded from 20 gms under .500 to make playoffs.
Toronto fans chanting merrily: "We want Bruno'' - their shocking first-round project Bruno Caboclo.
Things like this make you wonder if its almost better for NYK to lose in blowout fashion than for them to keep things close and lose anyway.
Melo played 40 mins on sore knee yesterday, & would likely play entire 2nd half today (& log 44 mins) if Fish thinks comeback still possible
Melo's been too slow with his closeouts today. Has cost NYK, and Toronto is 42% (10-of-24) from deep.
These ridiculous "recovery days'' become even more absurd when Dalembert gets ejected and Amar'e is home somewhere, not even on trip.
(And yes; I know James Johnson isnt a FA this summer. But he's a good example of the sorts of reasonably priced guys NYK should target)
James Johnson's developed into a really nice player for TOR this yr. Has the kind of two-way talent that NYK should be seeking this summer
Watching Pablo Prigioni is a special joy...but not quite the same as watching Terrence Ross dunk.
Samuel Dalembert was just ejected for elbowing Jonas Valunciunas in the face
Dalembert caught with elbow up high to Jonas. Called Flagrant 2 - an ejection. Doubt he'll be suspended too.
Well - Dalembert starts the second half in place of Aldrich - and promptly gets a flagrant II foul - ejected.
Dalembert hit with a flagrant two, which means he's ejected. Which also means Cole is right back in the game. So much for that.
That said, does seem like Fish often starts diff lineups in 2nd half than he does in the 1st. There's little to no continuity w this team.
Fisher replaces Aldrich w/ Dalembert to start 2nd half. Aldrich has been good in stretches, but certain types of Cs, he has no shot against.
Just showed a Masai Ujiri commercial for Blackberry on the screen here - you'll be sad to know that he does not say, "Take that, Berman."
First time I've seen Marc Gasol live this season. He's skinny.
Cavs PA playing "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" during Grizzlies' player introductions.
This is what winning does; Raptors are a together group. They pull for each other. Their fans are into it...just like MSG in 1999 or 2013
Raptors with 54 points with 2:11 left in half. Ja. Smith just yanked after Tyler Hansbrough outbattled him for offensive board. Low energy.
Four Knicks were near the ball on that Toronto miss and Tyler Hansbrough was the only one to make a play for the rebound and got it.
I'm not sure what the conversion rate is but Toronto has 54 points with 4:01 left in the first half.
The next loss is Knicks 25th. Two years ago they didn't lose 25 games until March 14...which is why your owner couldn't wait to break it up
I'm not sure how this is going to end, but the Knicks are giving up a lot of points to the Raptors right now.
Greivis Vasquez is terrific backup point guard, especially when you see him in comparison to Larkin-Pablo.
Between the Melo dime to Dalembert and Pablo's pass to Larkin, Knicks had some really good-looking passes in that 1Q.
Drake is here and I'm pretty sure he's thinking he could score on Tim Hardaway easier than in the Kentucky layup line.
The Jets lost.
I'm in Cleveland. Browns fans sound like Knicks fans.
If you're still watching football - Knicks call TO down 15-7, out rebounded, Lowry 3-pter, Terrence Ross dunk...Same as it ever was.
Toronto up 15-7 already after 6 minutes. Ross monster dunk off offensive rebound. Offensive foul on Melo. Ross 3-pointer. Went quick.
Calderon gets solid applause at the ACC. Played 8 seasons in Toronto. They love their former Raps. Acy got swarmed in locker room by media.
Jose Calderon gets a really nice applause from the Raptors crowd during starting-lineup intros. Played several yrs here in Toronto.
Bargnani took great offense to being asked if he'd consider playing overseas when his contract is up. Will be interesting to see who offers.
Bargnan says "can't wait'' to get back, still needs to consult with medical staff on whether returns to practice leading into Christmas
Raptors announce that Landry Fields is out today, after failing concussion test. Likely would've started the game and defended Carmelo
If it makes more sense to give Amare additional time off to fully heal & recover, why is Melo still going out there to play each nite?
Fisher said Melo, Cole Aldrich, Quincy Acy, Jose Calderon and Hardaway Jr. starting - unless he adjusts to Toronto swap in lineup.
With three days off, surprising Stoudemire didn't make trip and won't play either game of back-to-back. Amar'e said he'd only miss 1.
Might be a first - Fisher said he might adjust his lineup because of absence today of Landry Fields (concussion). He planned for Landry?
Fisher said giving Amare these 2 games off gives him extra time to rest/gear up for next stretch of games. He expects to have him Thursday.
Bargnani had strong oncourt workout with assistant Brian Keefe in Toronto. Looks healthy. Fisher says could practice leadup to Christmas.
Amare and JR are not with the Knicks today - Fisher said that J.R. is, well, out for weeks or day to day or, I don't know.
Fisher doubts J.R. Smith will be back anytime very soon. Indicates could be another week as he's resting heel.
Amare and JR Smith did not make the trip
Fisher says Calderon, Hardaway, Melo, Acy and Aldrich will start again today at Toronto.
Fisher says it makes sense to rest Stoudemire again today, since Knicks won't play again until Thursday.
Help is on the way soon, Knicks. Gulp... http://t.co/gKekZIJ6I1
