With a bevvy of young ballhandlers, Knicks head coach David Fizdale understands that turnovers are going to happen.
And that's okay.
FIzdale is encouraging Frank Ntilikina, Trey Burke, Emmanuel Mudiay and the rest of the team not to dwell on mistakes, something that has been received quite well by the team.
"You're not looking over your should every time you might turn the ball over, every time you do something wrong." Mudiay said, via Ian Begley of ESPN. "You don't put too much pressure on yourself to play robotic."
In 22 games with the Knicks last season, Mudiay averaged 8.8 points, 3.9 assists and 1.9 turnovers per game in 22.4 minutes per game. As a rookie with the Nuggets in 2015-16, Mudiay averaged 3.2 turnovers per game.
"When you know you can play through mistakes as a player that's all you can ask for," Burke said, via Ian Begley of ESPN.
Burke, in a similar amount of minutes played, was more efficient with the ball than Mudiay, with 12.8 points, 4.7 assists and 1.2 turnovers per game.
The Knicks get their preseason underway Monday against the Wizards.
