Mike Woodson wasn’t happy. In fact, the Knicks coach said he was “upset” by his team’s all-black attire for Game 5, as they dressed to attend a funeral that didn’t happen.

“I didn’t know about it until this morning,” Woodson said. “I made reference to our guys that we need to stay out of the paper and just concentrate on playing. That’s not important. What you wear doesn’t have anything to do with how you play on the basketball court.”

Woodson said he addressed the issue with the players and “that’s enough.”

He did say that had he known about the stunt, he would have stopped it.

“Things like that have just got to be kept outside the game. Just concentrate on playing basketball.”
