Frank Ntilikina and Emmanuel Mudiay working on their shot after practice tonight:

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Jeff Hornacek on getting Frank Ntilikina time at point guard: "We want him to get those reps. We don't want to put him in a situation where maybe it's a struggle. If some guy's going to pick him up full court we have other guys on the court who should be able to handle the ball." Ntilikina, Emmanuel Mudiay and Trey Burke will all see increased minutes in the backcourt.

Jeff Hornacek on the Knicks' approach over the final 23 games: "Just giving the young guys more chances.... We'll throw them out there. They'll take some lumps probably at times but they've got to get through that. They've got to battle through and learn." You can expect Frank Ntilikina, Trey Burke, Emmanuel Mudiay, Damyean Dotson, Luke Kornet and Isaiah Hicks to get more playing time going forward.

Frank Ntilikina on meeting Knicks great Charles Oakley at All-Star weekend: "I'm thankful for what he said to me. He said (you) have a bright future and keep working on your game."

Jeff Hornacek answers questions about the Joakim Noah situation: "I think he's ready to move on and maybe have an opportunity somewhere else."

Jeff Hornacek on Joakim Noah: "We've moved on. I think maybe he's ready to move on and maybe have an opportunity somewhere else." Hornacek said the plan was for Noah not to return at the moment. He wasn't sure if Noah will continue to be away for the remainder of the season, saying that decision is up to management. Noah and the Knicks have mutual agreed that Noah be away from the team following an argument with Hornacek in which, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, player and coach had to be separated.

For what it's worth: Emmanuel Mudiay was playing point guard with the first unit during scrimmages at Knicks practice tonight. Jarrett Jack has started at PG for New York for most of the season.

Knicks and Troy Williams have agreed on a 10-day contract, per sources, and Williams is expected to join the Knicks this week. ESPN earlier reported the Knicks' interest in Williams, who was recently released by Houston. The Knicks are looking for young, athletic players to develop and they found one in the 23-year-old Williams, a 6-7 small forward who has elite athleticism but will need to improve his shot and develop consistency on defense. The agreement was first reported by The Athletic. New York has an open roster spot to add Williams.

The Knicks are one of several teams who have expressed interest in free agent Troy Williams, per league sources. Williams is expected to make a decision on his next destination soon. The 23-year-old 6-7 wing was waived by Houston last week to make room for veteran Joe Johnson. The Knicks have an open roster spot at the moment.

Lost in the Knicks' awful 3rd quarter last night was Tim Hardaway Jr.'s strong first half (32 points on 12-of-14 shooting). Hardaway Jr. said Jeff Hornacek & assistant coach Jerry Sichting helped him work on his shot prior to the game.

The Knicks have a -7.9 net rating in the 3rd quarter, 5th worst in the NBA, per NBA.com. Jeff Hornacek said last night's struggle (27-point lead blown) was due, in part, to a lack of effort; Enes Kanter said the Knicks relaxed & Tim Hardaway Jr. said something needs to change.

Enes Kanter reacts to the Knicks blowing a 27-point lead:

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Over the last 20 seasons, there were 7 games with bigger blown leads than the 27-point advantage the Knicks squandered on Wednesday, per ESPN Stats & Information. Wednesday's loss was not the largest blown lead in franchise history. In Nov. 1987, the Knicks lost in double overtime to a Celtics team without Larry Bird. They led by 28 points in the second half of that game.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Jeff Hornacek again suggested that Frank Ntilikina, Emmanuel Mudiay and Trey Burke will play more after the All-Star Break. Asked about Ntilikina playing 11 minutes tonight, Hornacek said he liked what Jarrett Jack was doing with the starters and Ntilikina isn't used to defending a player like Jodie Meeks at SG.
