New York Knicks head coach Tom Thibodeau had many compliments about Josh Hart’s rebounding ability following the Portland Trail Blazers’ 132-129 overtime win at Madison Square Garden last night where Hart had 19 boards.

(via MSG Networks):

“That’s what he does. He’s probably the best rebounding guard in the league. When the ball goes up, if you stand and stare, that’s gonna be a problem. If you turn and check, there’s gotta be a physicality to it. He’s got a great nose for the ball. He anticipates well. Strong. We knew that would be a challenge.”
