Amare Stoudemire arrived in July and announced the New York Knicks were back, vowing things would be different for the longtime losers. ”This was the plan,” he said. “The plan was to have success.”
Right now, nobody can stop him from backing up his boast.
Stoudemire scored 34 points to lead the surging Knicks to their fifth straight victory, 121-114 over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night.
Wilson Chandler added 21 points and Raymond Felton had 18 points and 11 assists for the Knicks, who won for the 10th time in 11 games and improved to 13-9, the first time they’ve been four games over .500 since finishing the 2000-01 season with a 48-34 record.
