After Saturday’s practice, Knicks point guard Derrick Rose and coach Jeff Hornacek engaged in a long conversation. Rose, essentially, suggested the coach employ more butt-kicking regarding defense.
“We were just talking about defensive schemes, what I see with our defense, what he thinks our problems are,” Rose said. “I just told him, ‘It’s defense. Our defense triggers a lot of things.’
“I told him he has to be on us hard about defense every day. Like, beat it in our heads where we get tired of hearing him talking about it.”
