Without Hardaway, opponents have thrown the occasional double team at Porzingis with and more teams are going to a trend of putting a physical guard on him – something that seems to work. Hornacek feels Porzingis has to be smarter when sensing the extra defender is coming. “They tried that earlier in the season (with a guard) and KP kinda took care of that pretty quickly and got off to a great start,’’ Hornacek said on his coach’s show. “Just some little techniques he’s working on in practice. Some of that is sometimes they can load up and put the small guy and get into his legs. They’re coming to double team him occasionally when he puts the ball on the ground. And those are things we practice, trying to get him to get that feel of when he’s getting trapped to just kick it out. He had a nice one the other night (in Dallas), he kicked it out to Courtney Lee for 3. And when we start doing that it’s gonna get easier on him.’’
“You’ve got to respect him being a professional, how he handled everything with the media last year,” Courtney Lee said Thursday. Lee said Anthony may receive a mixed reaction Saturday night. “I think more cheers than anything,” Lee said. “You can’t fault the guy for going out there and playing hard and leaving it all out there on the court and just trying to help the team win. Whether it was the style that some fans wanted or didn’t want, he competed night in and night out.”
