  • [NYPost] Jeff Hornacek: How Knicks are letting down Kristaps Porzingis
    (Wednesday, November 02, 2016 8:42:30 PM)

    Kristaps Porzingis didn’t respond well to Tuesday’s fourth-quarter benching for defensive reasons. He didn’t have a field goal in Wednesday’s 118-99 blowout loss to Houston, getting into foul trouble and scoring three points on 0-for-4 shooting.

  • [NYPost] Lance Thomas has turned into a $27 million disappearing act
    (Wednesday, November 02, 2016 8:50:00 AM)

    Lance Thomas is back to being Lance Thomas. And that’s not a good sign for a thin Knicks bench in need of the 6-foot-8 forward being the defensive dynamo and consistent 3-point spark on offense that surprised the NBA the first three months of last season. When Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy visited the Garden last…

  • [NYPost] Phil Jackson should get out of Jeff Hornacek’s way: Byron Scott
    (Wednesday, November 02, 2016 8:11:50 AM)

    If anyone can recognize a bad sign for a coach’s future, it’s Byron Scott.
