Sorry for the lateness, guys.
17-17, 2:57 left in the first quarter.
So it looked like Amar'e Stoudemire stepped on Stephen Jackson's foot on his last three-point attempt. The Spurs called timeout.
Hope Jackson is okay, Kawhi Leonard is now in the game to replace him.
@kingf That's tough. It doesn't look like it right now.
@G Yes, he is in the game.
Parker/Ginobili/Leonard/Diaw/Duncan in the game for San Antonio.
Ginobili with a pump fake and a wild jumper on the left baseline at the shot clock buzzer, it's an airball and it's a shot clock violation. Knicks ball.
Gary Neal into the game for the Spurs, as is Tiago Splitter. Duncan and Parker to the bench.
J.R. Smith with a turnover, bad pass to a cutting Prigioini. But Smith redeems himself, blocking a Gary Neal layup in transition.
Smith misses a three, Chandler taps the rebound out to Anthony. Anthony hits a three.
That's his second three of the game. Nine points this quarter for Melo.
Ginobili drives baseline and turns it over, Prigioni connects with Chandler on an alley-oop on the break.
One and a half minutes to go in the first quarter.
Neal gets free and scores easily.
That ends the New York run.
Prigioni and Stoudemire run a pick and roll, the pass goes to Amar'e and he gets his shot blocked by Splitter. Stoudemire gets it back and Splitter blocks it again. Wow.
Ball goes out of bounds, Knicks ball.
Anthony misses a bad off-balance three off the inbounds pass, but the Knicks get a break as Gary Neal can't secure the rebound and the ball goes out of bounds. Knicks ball.
Chris Copeland in for the Knicks. Prigioni/Smith/Copeland/Anthony/Stoudemire out there.
Stoudemire with a travel on the low block, great defense by Splitter.
And now Manu turns it over on a dribble move.
Smith is fouled in transition, two shots coming up with 28.4 seconds left in the quarter.
@me The Knicks have been amazing at home, but I don't know. This is a really close matchup.
Smith misses both free throws.
Knicks 4-for-8 from the floor.
Gary Neal is fouled before he even gets the ball across halfcourt, the foul is on Smith.
23.8 seconds left in the quarter.
