05:18 PM ET 04.21 | Tyson Chandler only logged 20 minutes of action in the New York Knicks' 85-78 victory over the Boston Celtics in Game 1 of the playoff series between the two squads. Despite the shortage of playing time, Chandler insists he "felt great," and that the lack of minutes had nothing to do with a neck injury with which he has been dealing -- a statement that was later echoed by head coach Mike Woodson. Chandler did not score a point or register a blocked shot, but did grab five rebounds in the game. Kenyon Martin, who played in place of Chandler in the fourth quarter, finished with 10 points and nine boards, earning the post-game praise of Woodson.
