NEW YORK — Before the Knicks took on the Cleveland Cavaliers Wednesday at Madison Square Garden, head coach Mike D’Antoni made a somewhat bold statement about his team’s deep bench.
“There’s no drop-off,” D’Antoni said. “I’m not sure my 10th, 11th guy is not better than my third guy. I’m thinking my 11th guy is as good as anyone I got.”
If Steve Novak is the 10th or 11th guy on the bench, D’Antoni looks like a genius about now.
