Linsanity was truly great - but my favorite part was a certain beat writer asking Melo how he'd adjust his game to Lin's style after 4 games
Asked center Jason Smith if he knew he was flirting with a triple-double. He cracked an enormous grin, and said he did.
Funniest part is Melo referred to Jeremy Lin as "Linsanity" and recalled him in a question about rookies - before noting Lin wasn't one.
Fisher, on Melo: http://t.co/cLsjuqNx4T
It's spreading - Carmelo just brought up Linsanity in reference to Langston Galloway. Also, seems to think that's Jeremy Lin's name.
Carmelo Anthony compared Langston Galloway's penchant for taking big shots to Linsanity
Carmelo compares Galloway's penchant for taking big shots to Linsanity.
Carmelo was asked if he knows of another young, inexperienced player who plays without fear like Langston Galloway. "I think Linsanity."
Melo says he doesn't mean to compare Langston and Jeremy Lin, but says neither guy is/was afraid to take big shots in certain scenarios
Melo, asked how many rookies he's seen who aren't afraid of taking big shots: "I was here for Linsanity."
Carmelo isn't sure whether he'll play tomorrow, in team's back to back vs Indiana.
Fisher said it's "very important" to keep Lance Thomas and Lou Amundson.Their 10-day deals expire later this week.
18 from Langston Galloway, 17 from Lance Thomas in Knicks' win. Is this, uh, Lansanity in New York?
Fisher, on how important it is to keep the other 10-day signings around, given how much success the team has had: "Very important."
After winning just five of their first 41 games, the Knicks have won 4-of-5.
Meanwhile, the Atlanta Hawks have won 17 straight.
The Lou, Lance and Langston Show in NYC. Sure seems that way these days in Knicks land. Move to 4-1 in their last five games.
OKC has relied mostly on Westbrook, who has 36. No other Thunder play has more than 10. Knicks have 4 players with 14 pts or more tonight.
OKC is a mess right now. Kevin Durant missing 25 games has been problem No. 1 but there are other issues.
The Knicks are weird. Look like they're going to win their fourth in five games after winning just 5 of their first 41 games to start the yr
Philly won while Knicks & Timberwolves both on verge of winning. How often has that happened this season.
One & only Mike Francesa sitting a few rows in front of Phil Jackson. It's good to be the King...and on Jim Dolan's good side.
Westbrook appears gimpy after Hardaway committed a foul to prevent the dunk.
Hardaway hits a pair of triples after making two solid plays on defense. Thats karma, bruh.
Hardaway Jr. playing good defense tonight, perhaps motivated by the Rookie-Sophomore snub earlier in day.
Tim Hardaway Jr. just blocked Kendrick Perkins. I'm not sure what that says about either one of them.
It's heartening to see the people rise up and battle - booing the mega t-shirt machines at Madison Square Garden.
Thats exactly how you want Tim to play; particularly on a night like this, where he hasn't been able to impact the game on offense.
Tim had a great defensive possession on Jackson there to force a 24-second violation. Nice to see.
OKC was close to trading Reggie Jackson to Denver, according to a source. He is expected to be moved before the deadline.
Surprised Lance Thomas is able to hit that jump shot. OKC's Scott Brooks raved about Lance pregame, never saw a guy go so hard at practice.
Most notable part of Galloway's game, & how it helps NY: Knicks score 3.7 pts per 48 mins off his drives to the basket. Already best on club
Knicks lose a point after officials rule a Melo shot from earlier a 2 rather than a 3. 57-55, OKC leading midway thru the 3Q.
Melo, running Sacramento's 4-on-5 experiment after not getting a call, gets easy dunk on other end after NYK picks up a steal.
Melo, for a third or fourth time this season, drops the ball when an official blows whistle in his ear prior to an inbound play.
Cole Aldrich out for the 2nd half with a bruised (contused) left shin.
Wait, that can't be right... http://t.co/PwEJmpLLuf
Cole Aldrich has a contused left shin. He will not return.
Langston Galloway basically matching Westbrook point-for-point. Has 12 pts on 4-of-7 pts, while Westbrook has 13 on 6-of-11 from the floor.
Russell Westbrook is incredible at splitting two defenders on pick and rolls. Sometimes backfires, but when it doesn't, its awesome.
Tim Jr. and Cole are -11 since they entered the game.
Mo'ne Davis is at MSG :) This makes me happy, bc she's great.
I like that Galloway's eyes are generally up, looking at different options on that court. Has made 2 really good finds on the last 2 plays
muting anyone who mentions marshawn or deflation.
The National Anthem talent for Knick games this year has been off the charts, FWIW.
Langston Galloway's goal is "not just to be here but to continue to get better & to try to be 1 of the best 1 day. That’s a daily process."
Haha. I should have.
Curious as to how Galloway handles the Westbrook assignment. Russ almost had more pts than NYK (32 vs NY's 36) in 24 mins during Nov meeting
Scott Brooks has high praise for ex-Thunder forward and current Knick Lance Thomas. Says Thomas "treats every practice like a game day."
Fisher said he hopes to have Amar'e by the weekend or early next week. So he is out tomorrow at Indiana.
Jose Calderon will return tonight
Amar'e Stoudemire, Travis Wear, and Bargnani are out tonight. Fisher said Wear hurt his hip
Calderon, Galloway, Melo, Jason Smith and Lou Amundson will start tonight.
Calderon is back for Knicks tonight. No Amare. And no Travis Wear.
Fisher says Calderon is good to play. Amare will be out, and Travis Wear is out, too
This whole "exploding star" thing when you favorite tweets now is weird as hell.
The free agent recruiting frenzy has begun...July 2016 is right around the corner, right? http://t.co/i8LdmXjv62
Been in the car so late with this, but no Tim Hardaway Jr. in the Rising Stars Challenge. Nets Plumlee is on the U.S. Roster.
3) Why is it that these guys -- first Waiters, & now JR -- are convinced that they're playing better after these trades? Bc theyre winning?
2) JR is shooting 39.9% overall in CLE, averaging 15.7 pts and 3.5 boards per 36 mins. Shot 40.2% and averaged 15.2 pts and 3.4 boards in NY
