Amare’s Return Spoiled in Defeat!

Amare Stoudemire’s return to the NY Knicks lineup was spoiled with a 105-100 loss to the Portland Trailblazers at MSG last night! While Melo was on a mission with 45 points and seven boards, Stat was rusty and came off the bench for six points and one board! J.R. Smith was phenomenal with 28 points and 11 boards, and Tyson Chandler finished with 10 points and seven boards! Nicolas Batum lifted the Blazers with 26 points, rookie Damian Lilliard had 21, and LaMarcus Aldridge finished with 19 points and 14 boards! The Knicks dropped to 21-10, while the Blazers improved to 16-14!
