He [Stoudemire] told reporters that Lamar Odom had a "lucky game" in the opener of the Western Conference finals, an obvious shot at the sixth man who broke through a monthlong playoff slump with 19 points and 19 rebounds in the Lakers' 128-107 victory Monday night.
"I'm not giving him no hype," Stoudemire testily said. "He had a lucky game."
It continued an interesting 24-hour period for the Suns' All-Star center-forward, who said before Monday's game that he remembered having his way with Pau Gasol in the first round of the 2005 playoffs, when Gasol was with the Memphis Grizzlies.
"It was total domination," Stoudemire said. "But now he has a little brother with him so now he's a little more confident now because he's got someone to help him in the post."
