That's my team tho! RT @ExcentricAllie: .@Alan Hahn I love you man, but that Kevin Love/Jets comment was below the belt

Barbara Barker

LeBron James' homecoming game doesn't go as planned: Maybe it was the new blue uniform. Or maybe it was the hu... nwsdy.li/1vmB3LL

Chris Herring

Fisher made a couple of really, really impressive adjustments tonight in terms of his lineups. Really good sign for a new coach

Jose Manuel Calderon

Great W! That's how you bounce back! #knickstape Gran victoria! Así es como te olvidas de lo de ayer! #team

Tina Cervasio

Melo coming up on @MSGNetworks #NYKExtra #Knicks beat #Cavs "...total team effort. 5 guys guarded 5 guys... We stayed the course..."

Jonah Ballow

What an impressive effort from the #Knicks. This will help build confidence & trust in the system.

Marc Berman

Fisher coaches his butt off and Melo hits a gigantic, tough baseliner for sealer. Wonderful night for Triangle and Jackson Era. Wonderful.

Barbara Barker

Melo scores 25 in stunning win over LeBron and Cleveland. #Knicks

Brian Mahoney

Strong performance by Knicks that couldn't be predicted after last night. Melo looking for his shot early after passive start Wed. helped.

Howard Beck

Huge win for Knicks. Important win for DFish.

Alan Hahn

Once the game ends, tune into @MSGNetworks for #NYKExtra with me @Wally Szcerzbiak and @BillPidto.

Chris Herring

Knicks hold LeBron to 5-of-15 shooting and eight turnovers in his return to Cleveland.

Barbara Barker

Looks like LeBron James' hello to Cleveland is going to be about as well executed as his goodbye. #Knicks beat the King, 95-90.

Chris Herring

Melo finishes w 25 pts and 6 assists. JR w/ seven assists. Knicks had 30 assists as a team -- more than they had in any game last year.

Alan Hahn

And now run out of there like you stole something. #Knicks

Chris Herring

To the guy I sent condolences to for betting on the Knicks tonight: You're a genius, bruh.

Chris Herring

Interesting that Fisher pulls Larkin. Instead, uses the more sure-handed Prigioni. But Knicks turn it over, as shot-clock expires.

Barbara Barker

Eight turnovers for the King. Yikes.

Jonah Ballow

Larkin, Smith, Shump, Melo, STAT on the floor for the #Knicks.

Chris Herring

Crazy to think that, if Melo fouls out, Travis Wear might be the best guy to replace him. This season is strange as hell already.

Brian Mahoney

By the way, LeBron's shooting about the same as he did in his last Cleveland home game. 3 for 14 in that Game 5 loss to Boston in '10.

Chris Herring

LeBron: 11 points on 3-of-13 shooting. Has seven turnovers.

Brian Mahoney

LeBron keeps playing like this, #Heatmedia won't even need to stuff the ballot boxes to get Bosh an All-Star starting forward spot.

Chris Herring

Knicks are making every one of us look like fools. Really impressive showing here on the road in a hostile environment.

Frank Isola

LeBron needs Ray Allen to hit a three.

Steve Popper

J.R. just went all shape-shifting again.

Chris Herring

Knicks have 26 assists tonight. Their season-high last year was 29.

Ian Begley

Lebron averaged 32.8 points on 63.8 percent shooting in 4 games vs. #Knicks last year. He's scored 11 points (3-for-12) w/5 turnovers tonite

Tina Cervasio

In the other area of my job, Red Bull Arena must be going nuts with #Rbny comeback win in extra time. @TheRealBWP is the man!! #MLSPlayoffs

Jonah Ballow

#Knicks also chasing Cavs off the 3-pt line & forcing them to make a play off the dribble.

Jonah Ballow

LBJ, Love, & Irving have 42 of the Cavs 66. Not much production outside of that.

Chris Herring

Knicks play a solid third quarter, and take the lead, but give up another basket in the final second of a quarter. Was a weak point last yr.

Brian Mahoney

This looks like a potentially very skilled-flopping Cleveland team.

Ian Begley

Fisher has adjusted well to the Cavs smaller lineups so far. Samuel Dalembert started the game but has played just 6 minutes. #Knicks

Tina Cervasio

Travis Wear checking in. Jason Smith and LeBron got testy w each other. Melo is 7/14 FG & #Knicks lead by 5.

Scott Cacciola

Win or lose, impressive effort by the Knicks.

Jonah Ballow

For the most part, #Knicks fighting over screens, looking for traps, & staying tight on the Cavs. D has been solid.

Marc Berman

Honest. When Fisher put Wear on King James to defend him in first half and did so successfully, had to instill belief in entire #Knicks club

Barbara Barker

Wow. I'd hate to have been a Cavs fan and paid $800 on the resale market to watch this. #LEBRONISOFF

Marc Berman

Knicks really know how to ruin a good Northeast Ohio party. Up 67-60 with 2:12 left in 3rd but King J hasn't awakened yet for festival.

Chris Herring

To be fair to JR, he's setting his teammates up extremely well tonight. Couple of really nice drive-and-kick sequences. Looks good.

Steve Popper

J.R. hops off the bench and sheds the heating pad wrapped around his back.

Jonah Ballow

#Knicks w/ 22 assists & 12 turnovers thus far.

Chris Herring

JR wearing a heat pad for his back, which has been spasming on him in recent days.

Steve Popper

Oddest thing wasn't that LeBron was 1-for-9 before hitting 3-pointer there but that after dismal 1st half he hadn't shot for over 5 minutes

Tina Cervasio

Travis Wear has ice wrapped on left knee when back to bench. Been integral w defense & keeping ball moving. will keep eye on him. #Knicks

Brian Mahoney

Charles is needlessly struggling with this one. The East team that was out last year that's in this year is Cleveland.

Chris Herring

That said, I probably would use Aldrich rather than Jason Smith. But ... *Kermit tea sip*

Jonah Ballow

Travis Wear quickly in the lineup to start the 3Q. Checked in for Acy. #Knicks now w/ Larkin, Shump, Wear, Melo, Jason Smith.

Chris Herring

Fisher's lineup change at half strikes me as smart. Dalembert probably isn't mobile enough to help you defend a lineup like Cleveland's.

Al Iannazzone

Travis Wear is at the scorer's table already.

Steve Popper

Wonder who is playing the role of Mario Chalmers and getting yelled at by LeBron tonight.

Steve Popper

What's worse - LeBron 1-for-9 or the humongotron failing? http://t.co/Bp5Sljs42R

Marc Berman

Jason Smith starting ahead of Samuel Dalembert to start second half.

Al Iannazzone

Jason Smith is starting the second half at center, replacing Dalembert

Scott Cacciola

Part of the Humongotron is out.

Steve Popper

So, LeBron is 1-for-9 with Travis Wear guarding him for a portion of the first half. Seems about right.

Chris Herring

Travis Wear has already shown enough, between tonight & preseason, to show he deserves to be on this tm. Knicks would be wise to develop him

Alan Hahn

Halftime with me and Daughtry is next on @ESPNNY98_7FM. #Knicks

Ian Begley

Melo & Travis Wear have guarded LeBron a bunch so far. Those 2, along w/the rest of #Knicks, held LBJ to 1-of-9 shooting w/4 TOs in 1st half

Chris Herring

NYK hangs tight thru the first half, but gives up alley-oop in the final second of 2Q. Cavs up, 44-42, at half. LeBron: 1-of-9 w 4 turnovers

Marc Berman

After James airball, he's 1 for 9 with 4 turnovers and Knicks up 2.

Tina Cervasio

Kevin Love is killing it. 14 pts 9 Rebs. LeBron is -6 in +/- ~game tied at 40. #Knicks #Cavaliers

Ian Begley

Small sample, but the #Knicks' 3 shooting guards (Shumpert, J.R. Smith, Hardaway Jr.) are shooting a combined 8-for-33 thus far this year.

Marc Berman

We're all tied at 40-40 because LeBron James is playing worse than Quincy Acy and Cole Aldrich.

Al Iannazzone

LeBron is 1-for-8 with four turnovers.

Chris Herring

LeBron 1-of-8 with four turnovers so far.

Frank Isola

LeBron will explain his first half performance in a letter ghost written by Sports Illustrated's Lee Jenkins. Can't wait.

Al Iannazzone

Knicks have tied the game with a 16-5 run. LeBron has been very quiet.

Howard Beck

Hard to leave Bargnani and JR. RT @Ethan J. Skolnick: Carmelo Anthony could have been a Chicago Bull

Ian Begley

Update: J.R. Smith is back in the game. If his back is bothering him, he's choosing to play through it. #Knicks

Marc Berman

LeBron may get a triple double with turnovers part of the package. Got 4 TOs as #Knicks hanging in at 33-28 with 7:39 left in half.

Alan Hahn

That looks like the plan. RT @realjlive: Man. Play Melo and the youngins. They have less to unlearn.

Howard Beck

Good job, Cleveland. RT @Michael Lee: Justin Bieber gets no love in CLE. Was mercilessly booed as his image came up on the Humongotron.

Jonah Ballow

LeBron is just 1-of-6 to start this game.

Steve Popper

Can we just get Travis that video of him defending LeBron and call it a night.

Marc Berman

Cole Aldrich in game. Travis Wear in game. Safely you can say Fisher has no idea about his rotation. Not for a while.

Ian Begley

J.R. Smith walked off the floor gingerly. He may have tweaked the back injury that's been bothering him for the last few weeks. #Knicks

Jonah Ballow

Where is Johnny Football?

Marc Berman

Back spasms again for J.R. Smith, according to Tina C. Came out of game. Never had real back issues before preseason.

Tina Cervasio

JR is hurt. Holding right side/back. My wifi is spotty. Bieber is sitting between Usher & my pastor. And LeBron plays for the Cavs again.

Al Iannazzone

J.R. Smith just left the game in pain. It could be the back that hampered him in the preseason.

Al Iannazzone

Justin Bieber, Usher and Michael Strahan are sitting together. I normally sit with Berman, Herring and Popper. They win.

Steve Popper

We're not in Miami anymore. Justin Bieber gets booed when shown on the screen.

Chris Herring

JR seems to break every rule that was ever written involving the triangle.

Jonah Ballow

Loooks like J.R. tweaked his back on that play. Timeout #Knicks.

Jonah Ballow

I respect K. Love going with the cutoff shirt under the jersey. That was my move.

Chris Herring

JR seems to break every rule that was ever written involving the triangle offense.

Jonah Ballow

Travis Wear getting some early minutes. Fisher mentioned as an option on the wing during pregame.

Marc Berman

Jason Smith, who was rather horrible last night, has bagged 2 straight mid-range jumpers. That's why they signed him.

Jonah Ballow

Jason Smith w/ back-to-back midrange buckets to help the #Knicks get back in this game.

Frank Isola

Marv once worked for Knicks. As did Thibodeau & Steve Clifford. How's that for a triangle. And they were all dismissed by...the Great Kazoo

Chris Herring

Gonna be painful watching NYK take this many midrange jumpshots all yr, especially when you consider how good they were from 3 not long ago

Al Iannazzone

Knicks are 6-for-18, missing open looks all over the place, and there have been many possessions with no triangle being run.

Alan Hahn

"I don't need shooters, I need MAKERS."

Marc Berman

LeBron a bit out of control so far, so pepped to be back. 3 turnovers for James but Cavs lead 21-12.

Jonah Ballow

Larkin has saved the #Knicks on some defensive possessions in transition.

Howard Beck

"It must be cool to know that you're the best basketball player in the world." -- my 8-yr-old, accurately.

Frank Isola

Looks like the Knicks have given up on the triangle until the day Marc Gasol signs.
