Stoudemire likes playing against Blake Griffin
It's a good thing Amare Stoudemire has gotten two games under his belt (with two more to go), so he's able to build some rhythm heading into the playoffs.
But there's another reason why: to get some defensive preparation in before facing the most electric and explosive dunker in the NBA, Blake Griffin, who arrives at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday. Stoudemire is entering dangerous territory tonight with the potential for posterization, but he's excited about the matchup.
"It's going to be fun," STAT said. "Blake is a friend of mine. He was at my basketball camp when he was in college, so it's good to see him doing great in the NBA."
