New Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek said he's talked to Carmelo Anthony about "running the court a little bit more" next season to get opportunities in transition. "He does it at times," Hornacek said Thursday. The coach added that he's seen instances where Anthony "would've gotten a 3-point shot off but (he was) so far back in the trail position that (he wasn't) ready when the kick-out came. He knows that if he can get the ball up the court a little bit quicker, we can push the ball up to him, attack a little bit quicker. So I think he knows that's part of that. Other than that, the guy's a great player. So we want him to continue what he's been doing." Hornacek also said Anthony wanted to strengthen his legs this offseason, after his first full season following knee surgery.
