#Pop RT @Jeff McDonald: Pop also coaching refs. Tells Zach Zarba: "That's a travel. The signal's like this." And shows him.

Alan Hahn

Borrowed. RT @Wally Szcerzbiak: .@Alan Hahn @BillPidto Heard your stealing my lines!

Marc Berman

#Knicks end preseason at 3-4 with a late Larkin turnover and 83-80 loss to Raptors. Bring on Da #Bulls.

Chris Herring

That play shows a potential flaw in triangle when down 3 in situation like this: You allow opponent to foul your big man w his back turned

Alan Hahn

The final #NYKExtra of the preseason is next with me and @BillPidto on @MSGNetworks.

Chris Herring

Knicks' SGs tonight are 3-of-23. JR is 1-of-10. Hardaway is 2-of-7. Shumpert is 0-of-6

Steve Popper

Zen Master RT @McCulloughStar: There's a new sheriff in town. And his name is Ned Yost. He moves Gordon up, Gordon responds with biggest hit

Marc Berman

J.R. Smith and his self-fulfilling "struggle'' prophesy. He's 1 for 10.

Marc Berman

Phil Jackson not in Montreal tonight. Didn't make any of the 4 preseason road trips (2 Connecticut, Cuse). It's good to be The Zen Master.

Steve Popper

Nice to see Tom Verducci representing Mets PR battler, Shannon Forde with the SU2C tribute. @SupportShannon #StandUpToCancer

Alan Hahn

That third quarter is exactly what Phil and Derek have been talking about. You have to stick to the program. That's the challenge.

Chris Herring

Not sure if its being explained on TV, but Fisher & Melo were both upset, bc 24-sec clock was still intact as 3Q expired. It confused Melo

Chris Herring

I don't even know what this quarter is from the Knicks. It's not a triangle, though.

Alan Hahn

That was communicated. RT @KEGR123: @Alan Hahn can't fall into trap of because your down just jacking shots... Can't have system break down

Alan Hahn

Rome wasn't built in a day. Gotta pour a foundation first. RT @cmsantos1979: @Alan Hahn too bad he can't increase their talent level.

Al Iannazzone

The Triangle, or whatever the Knicks are trying to run, has produced six points in 10 third-quarter minutes.

Alan Hahn

That timeout was strictly a scolding by Fisher. He never even used the dry erase board. Just got into his players.

Chris Herring

Only in the third quarter, but Knicks have four technical fouls: Fisher, Stoudemire, JR Smith and Pablo Prigioni.

Al Iannazzone

Prigioni, Stoudemire, J.R. and Fisher have been called for technicals thus far.

Frank Isola

Amid reports of a NY Daily News/Post merger, Berman of the Post tweets: "Amare's floater wasn't t-riangle just t-alent." I think I'm safe.

Brian Mahoney

Yes, Knicks will have Calderon back for the opener, but struggling to picture a way they can break 90 if the Bulls play their usual D.

Alan Hahn

And no, this isn't about the big lineup being slow in transition. It's about wing players being slow and perimeter defense being poor.

Steve Popper

I'm not sure what shape J.R. is playing now.

Alan Hahn

Preseason #3QofDoom. Raps turned up the D, #Knicks hurt by some guys jogging in transition.

Chris Herring

These Amare-at-the-5 lineups, man... Just say no.

Jonah Ballow

Melo got called for the push-off but I love that option instead of the flash to the elbow, he cuts back door for the oop.

Al Iannazzone

Knicks gave up 14 points the whole second quarter. They've allowed 15 in the first 4:06 of the third.

Chris Herring

Knicks transition defense has gotten shredded a few times here tonight.

Chris Herring

Lmao! RT @Bill Oram: Asked where Steve Nash will rank among point guards in history, Kobe said, "That's ESPN's job to rank people."

Jonah Ballow

Lowry saying what’s up to Fisher during the free throw. Gives some props to the former PG.

Jonah Ballow

Melo buries a shot coming out of the half. Man, he is ready to go.

Nate Taylor

Lorenzo Cain is ridiculous.

Alan Hahn

Congrats to Chico Resch, honored tonight by the @NHLDevils. Not a better man in hockey. And a Cup winner with the #Isles. @MSGNetworks

Alan Hahn

Halftime on @MSGNetworks with @BillPidto and ME in @Wally Szcerzbiak’s chair for the night. #Knicks

Scott Cacciola

I know it's preseason, but that was a really nice half for the Knicks.

Frank Isola

I was forced, against my will, to do this. youtube.com/watch?v=l2JzEJ…

Chris Herring

Melo averaging 27.3 points per 36 minutes so far this preseason. Averaged 25.5 pts per 36 minutes during the last regular season.

Jonah Ballow

Dalembert chatting with Dikembe courtside during free throws. I assume it’s about shot blocking.

Marc Berman

Dalembert has 9 rebounds already - cleaning up in his former hometown of Mont Royale.

Al Iannazzone

You are t-errible. RT @Marc Berman: Stoudemire's spinning move in lane for a floater wasn't t-riangle just t-alent.

Jonah Ballow

1 thing we know is that @Amare Stoudemire is an extremely efficient offensive option. Should continue this yr.

Marc Berman

Stoudemire's spinning move in lane for a floater wasn't t-riangle just t-alent.

Marc Berman

Mount Mutombo getting huge standing ovation during timeout. Speaks French and 4 other languages. Great NBA ambassador.

Tina Cervasio

Mike Breen "reveals" on @MSGNetworks he also does the "Amar'e wine bath" helps him recover after a "tough broadcast". #BreenWaskidding

Chris Herring

They do? *scratches head in confusion* RT @R2Rowww: Perimeter defense might be lacking, but within the paint, Knicks have strong assets.

Al Iannazzone

There have been quite a few airballs shot by both teams.

Chris Herring

Biggest concern w/ this yr's Knicks: Almost no matter who they throw out there, theyre gonna have 3 or 4 weak defenders playing at all times

Al Iannazzone

JR Smith hobbling a little. He has had back spasms. Fisher probably should limit some of these guys.

Chris Herring

J.R. Smith walking off the floor very slowly as the quarter ends. Has been dealing with back spasms throughout preseason

Jonah Ballow

THJ's handle looks so much stronger this year. He said that is one of the things he focused on this summer. #Knicks

Marc Berman

If Quincy Acy can knock down open jumpers in this triangle like he just did twice, he's going to get his minutes. His presence hurt Early.

Marc Berman

Derek Fisher gets first technical of his coaching career. Good thing he saved it for preseason finale.

Jonah Ballow

In the Triangle, the big on the pinch post has to read & react like a QB running the option. Hand off or wait for cutting man to clear.

Chris Herring

Derek Fisher gets his first technical foul.

Chris Herring

Meanwhile, Carmelo's jumper is looking pure as ever.

Scott Cacciola

Shameless plug: I hear Raptors superfan Nav Bhatia is at tonight's game in Montreal. nyti.ms/1eVTYeC

Marc Berman

Melo feeling it in Mont Royale with 9 points in opening 4:0.

Chris Herring

Seems really clear that Fisher & Co. want to give Larkin every chance to win backup PG role. Im not convinced yet hes better than Pablo, tho

Chris Herring

Ive seen people saying he's an upgrade over Tyson. RT @benchwarmerdan: I already see the Dalembert blocks = good defender narrative growing.

Al Iannazzone

Knicks trying to put on a dunking show in layup drills and Shumpert and Dalembert were stuffed by the rim on back-to-back tries.

Al Iannazzone

Montreal native Sam Dalembert is addressing the Bell Centre crowd in French.

Alan Hahn

The final preseason game! #Knicks-Raptors on @MSGNetworks featuring @Wally Szcerzbiak with Mike Breen and @Tina Cervasio! #NYKExtra follows…

Jonah Ballow

I say 2015 dunk contest for @Cole Aldrich. #Knicks http://t.co/WVvBR768pQ

Chris Herring

Dikembe Mutombo is taller than Mike Breen. http://t.co/TOnlp4j4Dx

Marc Berman

Dalembert has bought 140 tickets for game - for schoolkids as part of his foundation, family, friends.

Chris Herring

Masai Ujiri just walked by, and all I can think about is the hashtag #TakeThatMasaiUjiri. Still funny, a year later.

Non-Knicks tweet: Interesting stuff from Carl Banks on race and Russell Wilson: medium.com/the-cauldron/b…

Chris Herring

The 12-13 Knicks initially benefitted from a small-ball style that tms weren't prepared for. Difficult to defend, and no early film on them

Chris Herring

Went back & looked at NYKs 12-13 preseason. Felton, Kidd, Brewer, Melo & Tyson had only played 9 mins together, yet started the season 18-5.

Chris Herring

Fisher hinted earlier that Calderon, Shump, Melo, Jason Smith & Dalembert will be starters on opening night. Group hasnt played together yet

Alan Hahn

Easier to answer in June. Have to see who will be FA. RT @__PaulU: @Alan Hahn #AskAlan who do the Knicks get in free agency next year ?

Alan Hahn

For an expiring? Doubtful. RT @nabby212: @Alan Hahn does Stat get traded if he stays healthy and can maybe get a good draft pick? #askalan

I believe they will be constantly looking. RT @T_Wheel11: @Alan Hahn do you believe the Knicks will make any big trades this season? #AskAlan
