This is completely my fault for watching this particular part of the game on the Minnesota Timberwolves feed. I'm a big fan of Tom Hanneman and Jim Petersen, they do great work with a terrible team, but their cameras missed something about as egregiously as the refs did Monday night, during this play.
The ball was obviously off of Kevin Love's(notes) left hand, though it's hard to see from that angle. What's easy to see, thanks to the MSG cameras and the subsequent post at Posting and Toasting, is Knicks big man Ronny Turiaf(notes) reacting as if he'd just been told his luggage was dumped from the plane at 30,000 feet.
Also fantastic? Mike Breen pointing out that Turiaf "was not chillin', as you said earlier," right before he fiddled with his ascot and puffed from his pipe, and Clyde Frazier pronouncing "livid" with a "t" at the end. Good work all around.
