The Phoenix Suns are on a roll, and proved so to the nation with a third consecutive win over the New York Knicks. After Amar’e Stoudemire’s return, many expected the team to pull it together and get back in the rhythm of things. However they have been unable to do so quite yet, which allowed room for Stoudemire’s old coach and team to take the win. It was the third straight loss for the Knicks. Both did a decent job on offense and defense, but it was the Suns that took the game with a few last minute free throws and a defensive rebound. It all came to a close at 121-129 after regulation time. Vegas odds.

Even though the Knicks had Stoudemire and Danilo Gallinari back on the court, they still seem to be missing that spark that marked their earlier games of the season. To further tip the odds, big man Ronny Turiaf was out with a bruised right hip. Still, the Knicks kept close throughout each quarter. Basketball scores.
A lot of that had to do with this being Stoudemire’s highest scoring game since he left the Suns last summer.
