NEW YORK — It was clear, at least to Knicks coach Mike Woodson, that his team suffered not having Pablo Prigioni on the court in Game 1, even as the Knicks were able to beat the Celtics. So Woodson and his players were pleased to get Prigioni back for Game 2, the ankle sprain that he suffered a week ago having healed enough for him to return to the court.
As Woodson had said Sunday, “Pablo was definitely missed on both ends of the floor. We went back and charted our offense. We had some slow time where we were very stagnant.”
