Hornacek on Porzingis: Have to Get Him the Ball


New York Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek said his team is missing opportunities to get the ball to Kristaps Porzingis.

“They’ve got to do a better job of getting him the ball when he’s got a mismatch,” Hornacek said after the Knicks fell to 1-3 following a 19-point loss to the Houston Rockets on Wednesday. “There were several times where he’s in the area on a smaller guy and we’re not necessarily looking for him. We’re looking for the next thing. We’ve got to find that mismatch, throw it up there, let him gather the ball and make a play on that.”
