I'm sorry I didn't get a game thread up yesterday and I have posted about the game so late. I've been out of commission for a few days and expect to be for a few more days going forward. But I did want to at least get something up for last night's game and will also make another post for tonight's game against Portland.
The main worry I have is Steve Nash's shoulder. He woke up with a bad shoulder a few days ago and has been playing through the pain. Something happened at the end of the second half last night and Steve didn't play the rest of the game.
Someone said he give a fire and brimstone speech at halftime and that was what caused the guys to come out and play hard for the win - despite Carmelo Anthony's triple-double.
Amare Stoudemire was a monster again last night and I expect him to continue the trend for as long as Steve is gone. If anyone can play up to the pressure of having Steve out of the lineup, it's Amare.
Steve is not expected to play in tonight's game against Portland and I have not heard anything else about when he will return or what is wrong with the shoulder.
If anyone hears anything, I would love to see what you've heard in a Diary or in the comments.
