Jeff Hornacek Rumors

All NBA Players

Ian Begley: Steve Clifford on Jeff Hornacek: “He’s a very good coach. He’s done a good job. You can’t lose (Kristaps) Porzingis and then, to me, start judging the coach.” I understand Clifford’s point re: injuries & think NYK will take that into account when evaluating Hornacek at year’s end

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?
