The Knicks' defense last year was a mess, most notably on the perimeter – 25th in NBA. My biggest issue there was how poor their corner 3 D was.

Spencer Pearlman took some time to break down the Knicks corner-3 defense last year, and why it’s one of the most important things they need to improve in the year ahead.
In the video, he mentions how Mitchell Robinson’s presence should allow defenders to stay home on shooters more easily this season. Sure enough, according to Cleaning the Glass, Knick opponents were 2.9 percent less accurate from the corners when Mitch was in the game last year.
