Amar'e Stoudemire has been playing extremely well since being inserted into the starting line up a few games ago. In his five games as a starter this season he's averaging 15.2 points on 55.6 percent shooting. Against Cleveland, Stoudemire had one of his best all-around games in recent memory, with 17 points, 12 rebounds, four assists and three blocks. His rebounding total was a season-high.
Coach Woodson is doing a good job with the difficult task of balancing STAT's minutes throughout the game while still giving him opportunities to get in a rhythm.
