Marc Berman notes that Mike D’Antoni may elect to play D-Leaguer Courtney Sims for a few minutes tonight versus the Pistons.
“…D’Antoni said Courtney Sims, the 6-foot-11 center who won the D-League MVP Award Monday, could see first action today when Knicks host Pistons. “I think I can help out this team,” Sims said, who averaged 22.8 points, 11 rebounds and two blocks in the D-League…”
If your first instinct is to protect the hoop, then how can you not help this team?
His minutes should come at the expense of Jared Jefferies who was nicked up last night. They could come at the expense of David Lee who D’Antoni was infurated with last night in Chicago for a lack of defensive effort.
