Knicks’ Woodson Worried about Defense
For the first time this preseason, Knicks coach Mike Woodson sounded worried. And urgent.
With one preseason game left, Woodson said late Wednesday the Knicks defense still isn’t ready for the regular season. Carmelo Anthony added the club has “to get better” on D.
“We’re still not ready defensively,” Woodson said. “We got five, six days to get there and Friday we’ll play [just] our rotation guys. Overall, we’re competing, but we’re not doing what’s asked to be done on the floor before the game. We got off to a bad start. Even when we can’t make shots, we have to get it done on the other end. That has not been our team in the past. We got to get back to playing Knick defense.’’
