First time Fisher has come in hacking at the Knicks. "The start was not the way to start a professional basketball game."

Richard Jefferson just tried a dunk that he might have made about eight years ago. He came up way short.
Tougher for him to do now, without Shump or JR, but I hate that Fisher's gotten away from resting Melo at the end of the 1Q and 3Qs.
With Fisher pulling Acy to start second half, leaves Melo playing defense on Nowitzki.
Larkin starting 2Q. Fisher going small.
I cite a statistic on Melo, showing he's moving the ball more quickly this season. I get called a hater for it. I love my job, bruh.
Kidz Bop talent search at halftime. I hope JR is at least healthy enough for that.

Apparently satisfied that the subs actually forced the Mavs to miss a shot or two, Fisher putting Carmelo and Amare back in.

With left in the first quarter, Mavs lead 29-15 with 4:00 left. On pace to score more than 236 points.
Former PGA champion Jason Dufner sitting courtside. In his sport, Knicks would ask for a mulligan with start of this game.
First time I've personally seen an NYK coach pull all 5 guys off the floor simultaneously. Deserved, tho, given how Knicks started tonight.
First time I remember in regular season Fisher yanking all five starters at once. Even poker-faced Fish appears ticked at 29-13 start.
Fisher pulls all five starters.
Sluggish start by Knicks has led Derek Fisher to sub all five starters.
The starters have been brutal. Really alarming body language to start this game by all five.
