Amar'e Stoudemire believes Dwight Howard's post game is limited, despite tutoring from Patrick Ewing and Hakeem Olajuwon.
"He's definitely a physical specimen down there in the post," Stoudemire said. "He's a great defensive player. Offensively, he's a little limited, so we're going to use that to our advantage."
The Knicks hope Stoudemire can keep Howard away from the basket.
"Once he gets the ball in the paint, then he's tough to guard."

Raymond Felton has been much better than expected during his first two months with the Knicks and he would like to remain with the franchise after his two-year contract expires in 2012.
"I think now, I've found my home. I've found it. I'd love to spend the rest of my career in New York,'' Felton told FanHouse. "When this contract ends, hopefully we'll work out another one."
Felton is averaging 18.2 points and nine assists per game for the Knicks.
"I always felt I was among the best (point guards), but now I'm getting the chance to show in different ways, from assists to defending, on the big stage, getting the exposure, showing everyone what I'm capable of,'' Felton said. "Did I know it would happen like this? No. Did I hope it would? Yes. It's been great so far, and I'm having a lot of fun.''
Felton was held back in some regard during his tenure with the Bobcats.
"I'm not going to say anything bad about Charlotte, but it was a different type of offense. This kind of fits me a little better. And winning makes everything good,'' he said. "I knew what I was getting into here, and I liked what I saw. It's been more fun than I even thought.''

Erik Spoelstra met with Amar'e Stoudemire and his agent, Happy Waters, at midnight on July 1 for two hours.
Stoudemire met with the Heat that night while the Knicks sat down with Joe Johnson and Mike Miller.
The forward did speak with New York coach Mike D'Antoni on the phone in the first few hours of free agency.
"It was a very good meeting," Spoelstra told The New York Post. "He was a confident guy. My sense was his main concern was to go somewhere he can win."
Stoudemire had intense interest in Miami, but he ultimately signed a $100 million contract with the Knicks.
The Heat went harder after Chris Bosh than Stoudemire because of Dwyane Wade's personal friendship with the former, according to sources.

Stoudemire knocked Rose down hard to the floor on separate occasions and stuffed his shot at the rim once.
New York defeated Chicago 103-95 at Madison Square Garden.
The pair exchanged words midway through the fourth quarter, but Rose said after the game he has no hard feelings toward Stoudemire.
"That's basketball," he said. "We got heated up for a minute, but it's nothing more than that."
Rose never felt Stoudemire crossed the line.
"It was just a basketball play, where things are going to get physical," Rose said. "He's a big man, that's what he's supposed to do. It's just basketball. I'd get tired if I kept on driving to the hole too, if that was someone else."
