Game 3 Saturday night between the Knicks and Pacers will be an important one as the series is tied at one game apiece and the winner of Game 3 in that scenario more often than not goes on to win the series. The Knicks will be getting a boost and some help for Game 3 in the form of Amar’e Stoudemire.
Stoudemire will be making his second return from injury this season and could not have come at a better time for the Knicks. The Knicks have watched J.R. Smith struggle mightily since his one-game suspension for elbowing the Celtics’ Jason Terry so having Stoudemire in the lineup is another player more than capable of picking up the scoring slack.
