Pablo Prigioni was absolutely fantasticin Game 6. The Argentinian point guard known for his passing and defense took on more of a scoring role and provided the Knicks with some much needed offense. He's been a good shooter all year and on Friday he exploited the space Boston gave him in the pick-and-roll. When Celtic defenders would go under the screens, Prigioni calmly pulled the trigger.

On the Knicks' first two possessions the second half, he got the offense started with an alley-oop to Chandler and a basket coming off a backdoor cut. The Knicks would go on to score 28 points in that third quarter.

Prigioni was great in 18.7 minutes per game in the first round. He especially thrived alongside Raymond Felton; In 84 minutes played this series, the Knicks outscored Boston by 21.8 points per 100 possessions with those two on the floor together.
