Knicks coach David Fizdale explains shocking decision to start Frank Ntilikina at small forward over Kevin Knox

“He was playing pretty crappy so his confidence was already shook up,” the coach said. “So think, like I said, sometimes a little tweak, just taking him out of the lineup for a minute might give him a chance to digest it, take a breath. And maybe this will loosen him up and he can start finding himself. But like I said before, our starting unit, all of these guys will tell you, you are not set in stone. So every day you come in here, you’ve got to earn it again and again and again. And if somebody starts to move in front of another guy, we’re going to make the shift.”
