After missing Sunday’s game against the Timberwolves with a hand injury, Steph Curry isn’t listed on the latest injury report for the Warriors’ contest against the Pistons on Tues… warriorswire.usatoday.com/2022/01/17/ste…8:00 PM

Knicks having trouble throwing and catching the ball. Two straight sloppy turnovers. – 7:59 PM
Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
McDaniels checks in, matches up with Randle. He did a good job on Randle back in Minnesota. – 7:57 PM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
The Wolves love to put DLo off-ball, guarding a wing so he can play free safety. A hiding spot.
That’s a little trickier tonight as those hiding spots are Barrett or Fournier. But Finch sticks with it, putting DLo on Fournier.
A DLo steal early, but also a few Fournier buckets. – 7:52 PM
Minnesota Timberwolves PR @Twolves_PR
At the 6:58 mark of the first quarter, the @Minnesota Timberwolves lead the Knicks 16-13.

*googles: “what’s Karl-Anthony Towns career high?” – 7:50 PM
Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
Thibs just got T’d up wanting the and-1 on that Vanderbilt foul on Mitchell Robinson. – 7:49 PM
Steve Popper @StevePopper
Saw Mitchell Robinson drive from the perimeter yesterday and RJ Barrett give up the ball on a fast break. You can’t predict basketball. – 7:43 PM
Fred Katz @FredKatz
Key to this game:
The Wolves starters are a wrecking crew. This lineup is +33.3 points per 100 possessions, the second-best high volume lineup in the NBA! Knicks starters have to hang with them. – 7:42 PM
Steve Popper @StevePopper
As he readies for the opening tip, Karl-Anthony Towns pointed over to Thibodeau, who broke his game face to wave to his former player. – 7:42 PM

At last! My copy of “Blood in the Garden” from @Chris Herring arrived today.
Growing up in Indiana, those Pacers-Knicks series in the 90s solidified my NBA fandom.
Can’t wait to start this. pic.twitter.com/dfIPoooOen7:41 PM

Christopher Hine @ChristopherHine
Chris Finch said before the game transition would be key for the Wolves on offense, that he didn’t want to get in a halfcourt “wrestling match” with the Knicks. – 7:40 PM
New York Knicks @nyknicks
LET’S. GO. KNICKS. – 7:39 PM

According to Second Spectrum, Josh Hart has 69 shots made in transition this year. That’s 3rd-most in the NBA behind only LeBron and Anthony Edwards.
He has scored or assisted in 104 in transition, behind just LeBron, Ant and LaMelo.
He’s also 7th in the NBA in fast break pts. – 6:52 PM

Daily Dose of Drucker: Bill de Blasio said he won’t be running for governor. Unrelated, Ellis Island is reopening to process the multitudes who want into New York. – 6:29 PM
Stefan Bondy @SBondyNYDN
Asked Chris Finch, who’s doing a great job in Minnesota, about Julius Randle (who he coached in New Orleans):
“He’s probably the most physical offensive player in the league. Him and Zion are the players where it’s like hit first and just bounce off you and just keep coming. ” – 6:19 PM
Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA
The Knicks allow a ton of 3s (4th most in the NBA), particularly from above the break.
The Wolves shoot a ton of 3s (3rd most in the NBA), particularly from above the break.
Finch when asked about that: “Offensively, we believe we’re flexible enough to take what they give us.” – 6:15 PM
Stefan Bondy @SBondyNYDN

Brian Mahoney @briancmahoney
Kemba Walker will warm up and see if he can go tonight. If not, will be his 10th straight missed game. – 6:02 PM
Stefan Bondy @SBondyNYDN
Kemba is a game time decision and will warm up. Not always, but usually from Thibs that means the player is available – 5:48 PM
Steve Popper @StevePopper
Kemba will warm up and decide if he will play. – 5:47 PM

I was really fascinated by how much/how aggressively the Knicks and the league were at odds. The Knicks started doing stuff just to get under league officials’ skin after awhile, just to be petty. fivethirtyeight.com/features/in-th…3:41 PM

Knicks-Wolves have about same record but Minnesota favored by 3 at Garden tonight. Knicks beat Wolves in Minnie in what was a competitive game when Wolves were absolutely decimated by Covid-19. – 2:31 PM
