Pablo Prigioni will now come off the bench. The Knicks won 13 straight regular season games after inserting Prigioni into the starting lineup on March 18.
But they have been outrebounded badly in two losses in this series, and that appears to be a more pressing concern for Woodson. New York allowed 18 offensive rebounds in Game 3 and was outrebounded by 14 in Game 1.
Woodson, though, has never started Martin and Chandler alongside one another. So it will be interesting to see how this pair performs.
Also, many players bemoaned a lack of ball movement after the Knicks' Game 3 loss. Not having Prigioni out there may have a negative impact in that regard.
Question: Do you agree with Mike Woodson's decision to switch the starting five?
