Amare Stoudemire plays in finale - Amare Stoudemire (F/C) New York Knicks

Amare Stoudemire played 20 minutes in Wednesday's finale against the Raptors, scoring eight points with five boards and one assist.

STAT: We didn't buy into Woodson's system

NEW YORK -- Amar'e Stoudemire says one of the Knicks’ downfalls this season was the team’s unwillingness to completely buy into Mike Woodson’s coaching. “I think next year we got to take more of a mindset of trying to master the game,” Stoudemire said before the Knicks’ season finale against Toronto. “I mean, again, certain strategies were placed upon us with Coach Woodson. There were times when we didn’t quite buy into it and as a result of that, we lost games.

Amare: I may play in Israel in 2015

Amar'e Stoudemire may take his talents to the Holy Land in 2015. Stoudemire is part owner of a professional team in Jerusalem and said on Tuesday that he "absolutely" is considering a move to play for the Israeli squad in 2015 -- after his current contract expires. "It would be big-time if I was to play there after my contract year. It would be massive not only for Israel as a country but also for the basketball club. So it's a high chance," Stoudemire said Tuesday morning after the Knicks' shootaround in Brooklyn.

Amar'e: 'We'll make playoffs' if healthy

Amar'e Stoudemire has no intention of going through another season without any playoffs. And Stoudemire says if he is healthy next season, the Knicks can still rebuild and make the playoffs. “Not making the playoffs is not an option,” Stoudemire said on Sunday. “That’s [another losing season] not an option for us. We’re definitely looking to make the playoffs every year. “This year’s been a struggle,” he continued.

STAT: On paper, Knicks may be NBA's best

In early October, expectations for the Knicks were fairly high. Most predicted that New York would finish among the top four teams in the East. Now that they’ve failed to make the playoffs, those expectations seem a bit foolish. But Amar'e Stoudemire insists they were way too low. “They should have been a little bit higher if you ask me,” Stoudemire said on Sunday. “On paper we might be the best team in the league.

Final Score: Knicks 108, Raptors 100

They didn't not win! Hahahahahaha what the hell is wrong with the Raptors? ...the Knicks actually showed some surprising grit this evening. Though their defense let Toronto shoot 15-33 from downtown (which was waaaay worse than they should have shot), the Knicks came from behind and protected a late lead behind some late stops and genuinely crisp offense. Carmelo Anthony snapped out of his slump despite the nagging shoulder problem and Amar'e Stoudemire played a dominant game in the post. Those two and the rest of 'em got to the line a TON and, right up to the final buzzer, hit their free...

Final Score: Knicks 89, Warriors 84

Man, what? What a stupid, awful game in both directions... ...that the Knicks won. Amar'e Stoudemire was a dominant rebounder. Carmelo Anthony was mostly terrible.  J.R. Smith played one splendid half and one horrid one. Tim Hardaway Jr. had the biggest buckets of the night. Shannon Brown kind of made a big play in the final seconds. ...and they won. And they're one game back of the Hawks now. Shit is weird.

Suns 112, Knicks 88:

Suns 112, Knicks 88: "This team has no heart or confidence."

Not even a little effort. I guess some tiny part of me hoped the Knicks would seize an opportunity to pull close to the sinking Hawks. I have since excised that tiny part of me with a rusty bayonet because noooooooo sir, the Knicks played this one like it was an exhibition. Worse, even, because even though there wasn't a shred of competition to be found after about the second quarter, Carmelo Anthony played 40 minutes. I have no things to say about this game. J.R. Smith played some attractive offense early, Amar'e Stoudemire got his buckets in his old home, and Melo shot okay considering...

Good J.R. Smith is good for the Knicks

Good J.R. Smith is good for the Knicks

J.R. Smith is known for running hot and cold, but when he's hot, the Knicks are a better team. The Knicks have cemented a losing record for the first time in three years, but there have been some bright spots, like Carmelo Anthony's all-around greatness, Amar'e Stoudemire's recent resurgence, Tim Hardaway Jr.'s solid rookie season. These things have all been discussed, though, as we try and combat the gloom that suffocates this team. A less-frequented discussion point has been our friend J.R. Smith. Fresh off a blazing 29-point outing in which he canned nine of his 12 three-point attempts...
