Josh Hart expressed frustration with the recent stretch

In Thursday’s loss to the Golden State Warriors, Hart was on the bench for a total of 50 seconds. He had 14 points, 18 rebounds, and seven assists, but struggled with his efficiency, shooting just 4-17 from the field.

The Knicks have lost eight of their last 11 games and find themselves just one game ahead of the eight-seeded Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference standings and in danger of falling into the play-ins.

After the loss to the Warriors on Thursday, Hart expressed frustration with the perception of the team’s recent run of play:

“I’m not sure what you expect or what you think,” Hart said via the New York Post. “We’re playing the best we can with the bodies we have. We have guys like [OG Anunoby], [Julius Randle], [Mitchell Robinson], who have been out for a long time. We’re working our ass off. It’s not like we just sit there crying about injuries and lying down.
