Jeff Hornacek is breaking over Knicks’ guard mess

NY Post (Marc Berman) — MIAMI — Nobody knows how much input Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek has now in deciding on the team’s starting point guard.

Knicks get back to losing but can’t gain any lottery ground

NY Post (Marc Berman) — MIAMI — The Knicks won’t run the table. Their two-game win streak was snapped in South Beach as the playoff-bound Heat blew out the Knicks, 119-108, at AmericanAirlines Arena. Count it down as just 10 games remain to this melancholy campaign — and perhaps Jeff Hornacek’s coaching life. Worse than the defeat, the Knicks’ two...

Jeff Hornacek’s advice for Knicks’ looming draft question

NY Post (Marc Berman) — MIAMI – Jeff Hornacek said he thinks the Knicks should at least explore addressing the structural flaw in their roster in June’s draft by acquiring a natural small forward.

Frank Ntilikina: How Knicks’ drama will help me

NY Post (Fred Kerber) — It has been an interesting nine mental months for Knicks rookie Frank Ntilikina. He was drafted at the grizzled age of 18 last June after strong showings in Europe.

NY Post (Zach Braziller) — Jeff Hornacek wasn’t concerned about the photo circulating online of Kristaps Porzingis shooting in the gym at his Manhattan apartment building just over a month removed from major knee surgery. “Technically I don’t know what he’s allowed to do from the doctors.

Ntilikina snaps as two-thirds of Knicks’ point guard trio heat up

NY Post (Marc Berman) — It is rare to see Frank Ntilikina get riled up.

According to Hornacek, he gave Ntilikina limited minutes against...

Jeff Hornacek challenges Knicks as his future hangs in balance
