Knicks’ Prigioni Breaks Rookie Record
No matter how long the Knicks extend their winning streak, one player will likely be overlooked by fans across the country.
That’s because he’s only averaging 3.3 points and 2.9 assists in 15 minutes per game this season –and he’s a 35-year-old rookie from Argentina.
But since Pablo Prigioni was inserted into the Knicks’ starting lineup March 18, they haven’t lost, as they’ve been averaging 104.6 points per game while holding opponents to 92.3.
With his 12-0 record as the lead point guard, Prigioni becomes the first rookie guard to win 12 consecutive games as a starter since Danny Ainge of the Boston Celtics in 1982.
