Nomare: The Phoenix-bred vitriol against Amare Stoudemire this season has been astounding, but he's not really helping himself out there. Following up that dreadful performance against Boston, Stoudemire had only four rebounds in 39 minutes and shot 35% from the floor against the bad defense of the Knicks. Amare's usually a hyper-efficient scorer, but if he's not doing that well he's not really offering much out there.
On the other hand ...: Amare's foil, David Lee, had a somewhat better performance: 25 points on nearly 60% shooting, and 16 rebounds. This game had all sorts of superlatives. Steve Nash had a whopping 19 assists and four turnovers, Nate Robinson had 20 points, four rebounds, four assists, four steals. Jason Richardson had 27/9. And as far as I know, no one insulted Danilo Gallinari.
