Pablo Prigioni, the soon-to-be 36-year-old rookie from Argentina, said he hasn’t felt any additional nerves playing in his first NBA postseason.

“I’ve played important games on different levels -- overseas, Olympic games, World Championships,” the Knicks guard said. “It’s different but I think that it helps me at this moment, gives me some experience.”

Coach Mike Woodson has praised Prigioni's big-game mentality and has put him on the court in key moments. Prigioni's three-pointer sparked the Knicks’ 30-2 run late in Game 2, and the crowd responded by chanting his name.

“You guys can’t believe how happy I am because of the crowd,” he said.
