One day after the Knicks' 128-105 loss to the Clippers, coach Jeff Hornacek stepped back and had his players discuss the film themselves.
"We kind of put it on them to discuss it today," Hornacek said, according to the New York Daily News. "I do that occasionally where we let them talk about it. That way you get an understanding of whether they're really seeing it."
Hornacek called Friday's game a "terrible defensive effort" by the Knicks and grew frustrated with the team's performance down the stretch.
"I think when you see something happen over and over and you don't knock someone over," he said. "Maybe that's old school, I don't know. But when they keep scoring the same way and you don't fight to keeping it from happening again, it gets frustrating. …I think they accepted getting scored on."
Some players saw the film session as a positive one.
"A lot of people with themselves said, 'I should of done this, I should've done that,'" Emmanuel Mudiay said. "So that was good. That was a good little coaching scheme he had so we can get on each other."
Hornacek's Knicks have continued to struggle, falling to 19-43 after Friday night's loss. The team has now dropped 11 of their last 12 games, and their 120-113 win over the Magic on Feb. 22 marked their only win of the month of February.
