Jeff Hornacek’s latest spin on Knicks’ defensive deficiencies

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — OK, so the Knicks are giving effort on defense. It’s just not enough and not the proper kind needed to win. But it is enough to ensure that for the present there won’t be any Jet-like assistant shake-up, so Kurt Rambis remains the defensive coordinator. “No, not at all,” Hornacek said when asked following practice...

The Knicks’ unicorn can’t get over the Bucks’

Knicks’ fix of pathetic defense must start with Carmelo Anthony

NY Post (Kevin Kernan) — The Knicks do play “D.’’ That’s “D’’ as in Disgraceful. This was the weakest of performances, and after the 115-103 Magic victory was in the books Monday night at the Garden, coach Jeff Hornacek said it’s time his team muscle up to the challenge that it faces. After all, weak and pathetic is no way...

Kristaps Porzingis isn’t pleased with Knicks’ new plan for him

NY Post (Marc Berman) — There is nothing scarier than an Achilles problem for a big man. Just ask Patrick Ewing.

Porzingis started experiencing...

Hornacek vaguely rips effort as Knicks’ moment of truth is here

NY Post (Marc Berman) — The Knicks limp into 2017 with a losing record and a four-game losing streak, and they’ll soon be battered by a brutal January schedule stuffed with 17 games, four back-to-back sets and a couple New Year’s edicts from coach Jeff Hornacek. And Carmelo Anthony, knowing last season’s club started its tailspin in mid-January and never recovered, cranked up the...

Knicks injuries are revealing Jeff Hornacek’s costly weakness

NY Post (Marc Berman) — HOUSTON — This is not a Knicks team with any margin for error. It has been proven if one of their top four starters is injured, the Knicks collapse like a house of cards.

Phil Jackson bolts, Greg Bird explodes and more 2017 predictions
