What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Steve Popper @StevePopper
Mitchell Robinson has hit two shots from long range tonight – and by long range, I mean not dunks. – 8:27 PM

Steve Popper @StevePopper
Raptors challenged the foul call on OG – and lost it. – 8:26 PM

Stefan Bondy @SBondyNYDN
Obi Toppin is exciting but there’s no way he gets these nightly chants if his name was Dan Jackson. – 8:22 PM

Eric Koreen @ekoreen
The Raptors have made more field goals than the Knicks. The Knicks have made 8 more 3PFG and five more FTs than the Raptors. – 8:18 PM

Stefan Bondy @SBondyNYDN
** A win would put the Knicks at 6-1 for just the second time since 1993 – 8:14 PM

Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
New York has hit 28 of its last 49 3PA, including 9-of-16 tonight. The Raptors could sure use the length of Scottie Barnes (and Pascal Siakam) to close out on these Knicks shooters. – 8:14 PM

Doug Smith @SmithRaps
Wild prediction
If the Knicks continue to shoot 56 per cent from three and the Raptors keep shooting 11 per cent from three, this game will not be close – 8:14 PM

Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Damn, Julius Randle. 18 points on 6 shots in 12 minutes. He and Barrett had as many first-quarter points as the Raptors (26). This Knicks team can SCORE. Their lead is 8. – 8:07 PM

Tommy Beer @TommyBeer
Monster first quarter from Randle:
18 points on 5-of-6 shooting,
4 rebs
3 assists,
4 made 3-pointers
1 blocks
In the first quarter.
NY up 34-26 – 8:06 PM

Fred Katz @FredKatz
Through one quarter, the Knicks lead the Raptors 34-26.
• Randle 18-4-3, 5-6 FGs, 4-5 3Ps
• Barrett 8 pts, 2 rebs
• Fournier 6-2-2
• Anunoby 10 pts
Knicks shooting 8-13 from 3 – 8:06 PM

Steve Popper @StevePopper
Randle banks in a 3 and it looks like one of those nights. He has 18 points and the Knicks are up 34-26 after one quarter. – 8:05 PM

Eric Koreen @ekoreen
Knicks lead 34-26 after 1, because Julius Randle cannot miss. He has 18. – 8:05 PM

Fred Katz @FredKatz
Everything is going right for Julius Randle right now. Just banked one in to end the first. He had 18 points on six shots in the opening quarter. – 8:05 PM

Eric Koreen @ekoreen
Julius Randle is as thick as two Dalano Bantons. – 8:02 PM

Fred Katz @FredKatz
OG Anunoby is one of the best defenders alive. Strong, quick and relentless. And Randle has been going at him well so far: 10 points, 3 boards and 3 assists. Getting good shots off, creating off the dribble, and Knicks lead 26-16 nine minutes in. – 8:00 PM

Steve Popper @StevePopper
Knicks are 6-for-11 from three – including an Evan Fournier three that is met with a “Bing Bong” from the Garden PA system and curious laughter from the crowd. It is going to remain a thing I guess. – 7:58 PM

Doug Smith @SmithRaps
Knicks by 10 and 6-11 from three; that’ll do it – 7:57 PM

Fred Katz @FredKatz
They just played a “Bing bong!” track on the loudspeaker after Evan Fournier hit a 3 at MSG. – 7:56 PM

Yaron Weitzman @YaronWeitzman
Very strange to watch a Knicks-Raptors game where the Knicks are clearly the more talented team that should win. Can’t remember last time that was the case – 7:52 PM

Fred Katz @FredKatz
The Knicks just got a delay of game warning coming out of a timeout. I don’t know what it was for, but I’m intrigued. – 7:51 PM

Tommy Beer @TommyBeer
Knicks have to do a better job of rewarding Mitchell Robinson when he cleaning the glass and protecting the rim like he has been…
He’s got 3 offensive rebounds and a block in the first few mins, but zero FG attempts.
Run some pick-and-roll and throw it at rim for him – 7:50 PM

Doug Smith @SmithRaps
Knicks by 2 at first time, all their points are on 3s – 7:49 PM

Micah Adams @MicahAdams13
How much has the NBA changed in 75 years?
Here are the heights and weights of the five leading scorers for the Knicks in the first game in NBA history played 75 years ago today:
5’11”, 180
6’0″, 175
5’10”, 170
6’2″, 170
6’6″, 225 – 7:29 PM

Rob Perez @WorldWideWob
Knicks are on. – 7:29 PM

Michael Grange @michaelgrange
Raptors are starting Svi Mihailiuk vs. Knicks in place of injured Scottie Barnes. Raptors head coach Nick Nurse think Mihailiuk has levels he hasn’t reached yet: pic.twitter.com/7iSrLhXMoy7:11 PM

Michael Grange @michaelgrange
Nick Nurse coached Knicks’ RJ Barrett with the Canadian men’s national team this summer and came away impressed with third-year wing’s game, on and off the floor: pic.twitter.com/qYAXKU93Ms7:08 PM

Doug Smith @SmithRaps
Not surprisingly, Svi Mykhailiuk slides into the Raptors starting lineup for Barnes
VanVleet, Anunoby, Trent, Achiuwa join him – 7:04 PM

Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Svi Mykhailiuk starts in place of the injured Scottie Barnes. It’s VanVleet, Trent, Svi, Anunoby and Achiuwa vs New York. – 7:03 PM

Eric Smith @Eric__Smith
On the 75th anniversary of the 1st ever #NBA game…between the Toronto Huskies & New York Knickerbockers at Maple Leaf Gardens…I started thinking about when the Toronto #Raptors actually played a few games at MLG before moving to Air Canada Centre/Scotiabank Arena…

Doug Smith @SmithRaps
A Toronto newbie nine years ago,Nick Nurse lived by MLG.
Took pics of the signage in the grocery story commemorating first BAA game, Huskies/Knickerbockers. “Very cool.”
And knows the history. Of tonight, he says: “The rematch. I think we owe ’em one, don’t we?” – 6:18 PM

Mike Ganter @Mike_Ganter
No Barnes tonight for Raptors vs. Knicks. He’s out with a sprained thumb. Nurse has not decided who gets his place in the starting five. – 6:17 PM

Michael Grange @michaelgrange
“You look at the toughness, the basketball, the basketball IQ … guys like that get better” — Knicks head coach Tom Thibodeau on RJ Barrett, coming off a career high. – 6:03 PM

Michael Grange @michaelgrange
Not a shock, but Knicks head coach Tom Thibodeau — who cut his NBA teeth w 90s era Knicks — is in favour of refs are allowing the game to be played more physically. – 5:56 PM

Tommy Beer @TommyBeer

Michael Grange @michaelgrange
So, Scottie Barnes is still listed as doubtful on the 530 injury report for Raptors game vs. Knicks, but it would seem that his thumb injury is not *too* serious. Had an MRI earlier today. pic.twitter.com/AC1T4kxQEz5:45 PM

Eric Koreen @ekoreen
No official word but Scottie Barnes is here dribbling a basketball with no protection on his thumb. – 5:28 PM

Steve Popper @StevePopper
It’s not exactly tickets to a Knicks game, but the Garden will serve as a polling site for the election tomorrow. – 5:01 PM

Ian Begley @IanBegley
On injury report posted by the NBA at 4:30 pm, Nerlens Noel remained questionable for tonight’s NYK-TOR game. Noel hasn’t played in preseason or regular season games due to soreness in his left knee, per Knicks. – 4:50 PM

RJ Barrett and Kevin Durant were among the nominees for Eastern Conference player of the week, the league says. The award went to Miami’s Jimmy Butler. Utah’s Rudy Gobert won in the Western Conference. – 3:34 PM

Justin Kubatko @jkubatko
📅 On this day in 1986, the @Chicago Bulls Michael Jordan scored 50 points in a season-opening win over the Knicks.
Jordan went on to average 37.1 PPG that season, the highest scoring average in NBA history by a player not named Wilt Chamberlain. pic.twitter.com/TafgayAuhb2:31 PM

Doug Smith @SmithRaps
For the NBA hates Canada crowd, people tell me Raptors-Knicks in NY tonight because MLSE had a concert hold on Scotiabank for Nov. 1 when NBA schedule finalized. Concert never happened, game is in NY because time to release date came too late. – 1:55 PM

Scott Agness @ScottAgness
Malcolm Brogdon suffered a left hamstring strain last week against the Raptors.
He worked on midrange jumpers after shootaround, and is questionable tonight vs Spurs. (Hamstring injuries typically sideline players for ~2 weeks) pic.twitter.com/NIeokKQM7U1:49 PM
