Did Stoudemire Hand Series To Heat After 104-94 loss ? Updated

Stat Hurts HandA hot and frustrated Amare Stoudemire lacerated his hand, after jamming it through a glass casing for a fire extinguisher, following a second loss to the dominant Miami squad.  The Knicks lost 104-94 to the Heat before Stat lost his cool on the wrong collapsable surface.  While the Knicks tried to stick with the Heat much of the game, the combination of Bosh, Wade and LeBron was too much for our heroes. With Stat definitely out for game three, now the question is “Are we too wounded to fight back?”

According to a soure, when Amare hit the glass with a closed fist out of frustration, he actually thought it was plastic.  The source said “Half of his hand was just hanging off. It was really bad. Blood was just squirting out. That’s why they had the paramedics come in, because they thought he might have punctured an artery because of how much blood was coming out.” Stoudemire may be out for the entire series which,without Shumpert, is not likely to be long.
