New York Knicks head coach Mike Woodson thought it would be a good idea to go “big” during Game 4 of their playoff series with the Indiana Pacers.
He thought wrong.
The Knicks struggled for the vast majority of the game, only finishing with 82 points in the 11 point loss.
Hoping to extend the Knicks season as they currently sit down 3 games to 1, Woodson says he is “considering” starting Pablo Prigioni again, who started three of the series’ first four games.
Per Ian Begley of ESPN New York:
@HerringWSJ: Woodson: “We’re contemplating” going back to the Prigioni starting lineup.
Prigioni played just 3.5 minutes in the Game 4 loss, though, he hasn’t exactly been lighting it up during his time on the court either. The Argentina native did have a very solid Game 2, where he shot 4 of 4 en route to 10 points to go along with 4 assists, but went a combined 0-4 during Game 1 and Game 3 – though he did have solid assist numbers.
Hoping to keep the ball from stagnating, Prigioni’s ability to move the rock should help the Knicks from extended offensive lulls but will it be enough to prolong their season?
The Knicks and Pacers tip-off Game 5 tomorrow evening in New York.
