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.
