What advice did you give Pablo before he signed? Luis Scola: I told him, 'I think you should go and I will push hard for you. I think it's the best thing for you and your career.' Not only that, I thought New York was the perfect team for him. The team has such great players like J.R. Smith and Carmelo [Anthony], and they have a great pick-and-roll player in Tyson Chandler. I'm not surprised they play well with him on the court. ESPN.com

Pablo Prigioni admitted his ankle was "maybe 75 to 80 percent". Why he said he had to play in Game 2: "I can't stay one more game out," Prigioni said after playing 17:35 and posting five assists with 0 turnovers. "I want to play." Prigioni rolled his ankle in the final game of the regular season a week ago today. "Normally, I recover fast from injuries," he said, but the ankle swelled up on him. It caused him to miss Game 1 of the playoffs, which was last Saturday. Sulia
