New York's best - oh, excuse me - second-best point guard poured in 28 points with five assists and no turnovers in 25 minutes.

Amar'e Stoudemire Will Make Return Tonight Versus Cleveland

New York Knicks star Amar’e Stoudemire will return to the lineup tonight for the first time in 13 games. Stoudemire was sidelined with a back injury, but the forward will give it a go against the Cleveland Cavaliers tonight.

The Knicks have already clinched a playoff spot, so the remainder of the season is a great opportunity for Carmelo Anthony and Stoudemire to build some chemistry. Those two have struggled together on the court and they need to figure each other out before the post-season starts. The Knicks played well when Carmelo Anthony was the star, but they need both players if they want to win their first round series.

“Carmelo is a phenomenal player, but he can’t do it by himself,” Stoudemire said, [USA Today]. “The rest of the team is playing well, but for me to get back out there and be the dynamic scorer that I am, alongside him, it’s a great one-two option.”

Stoudemire will be inserted into the starting lineup and Landry Fields will become a bench player.
