A Little Too Late

Amare Stoudemire’s 3-pt percentage would’ve went up yesterday.
He would’ve won the game for his team yesterday.
He would’ve perhaps started the renewal of a rivalry with the Knicks off to a great start within it.
If he had just .2 of a second more…
Last night, the New York Knicks played the Boston Celtics in a heated matchup that would go down to the wire, 118-116, with a last second jumpshot by Paul Pierce sending the Celts up by 2. The Knicks ran an out of bounds play that happened to find Stoudemire immediately after, and he sank the game winning 3- after regulation. The Knicks played with great intensity and showed that they were not to be missed in talks about who’s possible contenders in the east. Amare had 39 points and 10 rebounds in the loss, continuing his 9-game streak of 30 points or more. Pierce had 32 points and 10 rebounds, Ray Allen had 26 points and went 10 for 19 from the field. Raymond Felton had an outstanding game, going for 26 points and about 12 assists, finishing with a double-double for the night. This is the second close game the Knicks have had with the Boston Celtics, with another loss of 105-101.
