Mike Woodson was critical of Tyson Chandler’s offensive game, but he said he wants to help the Knicks' center get better.

“I think you've got to be able to catch the ball and play offense,” Woodson said. “Rebound the ball instead of tapping it out. Rebound the ball and go back up and get fouled or score the bucket. That's important. I thought that was our difference in the series with the Pacers because of their two bigs.

“Tyson physically has got to get back. I think he's got to get on a weight program and try to bulk up a little bit we talked about that some as well as try develop on the low block.”

Chandler had the flu before the playoffs and lost 12 pounds.
