Pablo Prigioni’s impressive night as Knicks point guard

Jan 4, 2013, 10:18 AM EDT

Pablo Prigioni is not your average NBA rookie. The Argentinian point guard is 35 and had a long career playing in Europe and internationally, he was not a guy who grew up dreaming of playing in the NBA so he didn’t.

But at the urging of Luis Scola and others, he decided to give it a shot. Now with Raymond Felton being injured in New York (broken finger, he is out a month) Prigioni is being thrust into the spotlight.

And for a night, he looked pretty good doing it. He carved up a listless Spurs team by pushing the pace and throwing some impressive lobs. This could be an interesting month for the Knicks with him at the helm.

    By ‘starting PG’ I assume you mean he got most of the minutes… because he didn’t start.

    Those were some pretty good highlights, my favorites were (in no particular order)

    1) Pass to Chandler that was returned with one arm 1:10
    2) Steal and pass to Walker 0:46
    3) Pass to Smith 1:15, the dunk was awesome

    FYI Pablo didn’t start last night–kidd, melo, brewer, chandler and camby started. Woodson went more d oriented but wound up inserting smith and amare shortly after to get the o going. Pablo came off the bench, and was told by Woodson that he needed to do more in the absence of felton. Another great pickup by the knicks regardless if he’s a 35 yr old rook. Depth is key in winning championships, and the knicks def have one of the best benches in the league.

      On this team, at 35, he’s just a baby ! But he got game, very heady player. Great pick up and Knick Nation is happy to have him. Make sure he gets the surf and turf at The Palm, on Dolan’s tab. Only $175.
