Amare Questionable for Game 3 After Punching Fire Extinguisher

Amare Stoudemire left American Airlines Arena Monday night with his left arm in a sling. After the Knicks fell to the Heat 104-94, Stoudemire punched a fire extinguisher that was inside a glass case. Stoudemire broke the glass and sliced his hand open.

Stoudemire's act of frustration has now put his playoff series in jeopardy. The severity of the cut is not fully known, but it could keep Stoudemire out for the rest of this series.

The Knicks are in an 0-2 hole heading into Game 3 at Madison Square Garden Thursday night. The Knicks need much better secondary scoring, and need to find some answer for Miami on the defensive. If Stoudemire cannot play Game 3, they will lose a little on the defensive end, and will need a team effort to pick up the scoring slack and give Carmelo Anthony more support.
