Tommy Dee, theKnicksBlog.comThe Knicks ran a version of this last year under Mike D’Antoni which often resulted in a jump shot from the left elbow. They usually ran it on the first play of the game. Here, Stoudemire quickly receives the pass with a solid catch, not his strength by any means, then sees the lane to attack for the finish. What a great sign for the Knicks and Knicks fans.
I also loved what Amar’e said after the game in how hard he worked to get himself back to top physical condition. With plays like this in addition to his tremendous efficiency since his return it’s very easy to really think that this team, if healthy, can play into June.
