According to Hornacek, he gave Ntilikina limited minutes against Philadelphia on Thursday to avoid the rookie facing 6-10, rookie-of-the-year candidate Ben Simmons. And Hornacek wouldn’t start him Saturday despite Courtney Lee’s absence due to the 6-9 presence of shooting guard Nic Batum. Too much size and strength for the 19-year-old Ntilikina to handle. Or not?
Storyline: Hornacek-Ntilikina Dynamic
The Knicks have been lacking everywhere this season. Undoubtedly in wins. Definitely in talent. And now, according to Courtney Lee, undeniably in effort. “When you watch film, it’s just all effort,” Lee said Monday after practice in Tarrytown, his first non-game work with the team in nearly a week following a death in the family. “Effort is the key to everything. It takes no talent to run from the paint out to contest a 3-point shot, that’s just all effort. We have to get everybody’s effort. Everybody’s got to be locked in.”
Courtney Lee takes pride in playing defense. He said not enough Knicks do. One day after the Knicks gave up a season-high 132 points to the Raptors, Lee said some players are letting the team down because they’re not playing with enough effort on defense. “I think you should be mad at yourself if you watch film and your teammates are calling you out,” Lee said after Monday’s practice. “You should not want to let them down, and if you’re seeing that it’s you repeatedly, if you don’t make that adjustment then that’s just telling us you don’t care. So I definitely at points get frustrated with it.”
