Amidst the Knicks’ playoff woes lies J.R. Smith’s terrible shooting percentage. Mike Woodson, the Knicks coach, remains stubborn in his efforts to start J.R. Smith and have him break his shooting slump. Woodson still gives J.R. Smith a majority of the minutes in spite of their 3-1 deficit in the series, and also in spite of sitting shooters with more reliable and consistent numbers like Novak being available.
The Knicks have very little chance of winning this series, but ideas like this are why they are absolutely doomed:
Knicks fans Coach Woodson should start JR Smith next game to see if he can break out of his shooting slump. #NBAPlayoffs
