Tom Thibodeau saw the Knicks get beaten in multiple backdoor cuts on Wednesday night. He didn’t want to see it happen again.
So he called timeout, dropped his mask and turned on his he players.
“I see my work in telling them the truth as I do. The players in this league are fantastic – they can beat you in one big play. But it shouldn’t happen over and over again, “Thibodeau said.” … .. To win this championship, it can’t happen. “
Thibodeau’s message was well received.
New York broke the game against the Bulls Open in the fourth quarter of a 19-point win.
Thibodeau’s club closed the evening in exclusive possession of fourth place in the Eastern Conference, a game ahead of Atlanta.
