Tyson Chandler looked like his himself for the Knicks. He blew up pick-and-rolls and bent the defense on his fierce rolls to the rim. He had three blocks and changed countless other shots near the rim -- something the Knicks have been sorely lacking since his injury. Particularly in the overtimes, when they needed him most, Chandler was there to contest shots and haul down tough rebounds in traffic. The 'Tyson Tip Out' made a triumphant return, as five of Chandler's nine rebounds came on the offensive end.
It was a very promising return for Chandler despite the increase in minutes brought on by the extra frames. He suffered from cramps in the second overtime, but two days of rest should allow him to get back to 100 percent in time for Saturday's bout with the Grizzlies.
