Stoudemire Producing Off Bench For Knicks
Amar'e Stoudemire has reached double digits in scoring four straight times.
Stoudemire scored 15 points and grabbed nine rebounds in Thursday’s 89-86 win over the Boston Celtics.
“He’s more active now,” Knicks coach Mike Woodson said. “Obviously his knee is starting to get a lot better. I was only able to give him 20 minutes, and he was over wondering why I didn’t get him back in there, but he hung in there with me and when he did get back in, he made a great offensive play and I thought defensively he was solid as well.”
Stoudemire is shooting 57.1 percent from the field, and averaging 8.0 free throw attempts over his last four outings.
The Knicks have won three of those games.
“I am definitely feeling better, getting better, more comfortable,” Stoudemire said. “I just feel like when I am out there I am going to do whatever I need to do to help the team win.”
