Knicks Shift Focus in Practice in Attempt to Solve Issues


If Kurt Rambis doesn’t work out as the Knicks’ new lead defensive assistant, perhaps Courtney Lee should take the job.

Last week, Lee suggested part of the problem with the Knicks’ defense might be that it practices against the triangle offense — a system no other team utilizes — instead of working against more popular pick-and-roll-based attacks.

On Tuesday, the Knicks spent the majority of practice working on defense against a variety of pick-and-roll sets, a shift the players seemed to believe was overdue.
