Jeff Hornacek Say Knicks' defense must get better but not sure if it will get better
Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek questioned whether his team has enough talent to compete on defense after a 115-103 loss to the Orlando Magic on Monday night.
"I think they're trying," Hornacek said of the Knicks. "We just must not be good enough defensively."
New York allowed 115 points to a Magic team that entered play Tuesday averaging 99 points per game. It was the club's fifth straight loss and eighth in 10 games. Defense has been an issue throughout the skid.
