Chandler Ready for More Touches by Garnett in Game 2

Originally posted on

GREENBURGH, N.Y. — With Kevin Garnett expected to get more touches in Game 2 on Tuesday night, Tyson Chandler knows it’s more important than ever that he round back into form from his neck injury.

Chandler was essentially a non-factor in Game 1, going scoreless and block-less with five rebounds in 20 minutes of the Knicks 85-78 victory.

“Yeah, absolutely,” Chandler said Monday at practice. “I expect [Garnett] to get more shots. We just have to do a good job defending him down in the paint as well as making sure he doesn’t get any open jump shots.”
