Woodson had hoped the return of Amare Stoudemire from a two-month layoff following knee surgery would help the Knicks inside Saturday. Instead, Stoudemire looked rusty, scoring seven points and grabbing just two rebounds in nine minutes. Steve Novak, who missed the first game of the series played sparingly in Game 2, even less time in Game 3 and still has not scored in the series.
Smith and Anthony have continued to struggle shooting the ball, combining to go 40 for 112 in three games.
And now Martin is under the weather, too.
But the Knicks believe they can — and will — start playing better.
"We’re going to need everybody playing Tuesday night on all cylinders," Woodson said. "We don’t want to go back down 3-1. That would be a tough climb for us."
