Heat take care of business and protect the home court. Take a 2-0 series lead. Amar'e Stoudemire has seemed to lacerate his hand punching an object in frustration after the game. Not sure if it will cause him to miss any games.

STOUDEMIRE OUT FOR GAME 3 IN NEW YORK

NEW YORK (AP) Amare Stoudemire had a small muscle repaired Tuesday and will not play for the New York Knicks in Game 3 of their first-round playoff series against the Miami Heat.

The Knicks announced that Stoudemire met with a hand specialist at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, a day after he cut his left hand when he punched the case surrounding a fire extinguisher after the Knicks' 104-94 loss in Miami.

The Knicks are listing Stoudemire as doubtful for Game 4 on Sunday.

Stoudemire apologized on his Twitter account for the act, which leaves the Knicks without another key player as they try to rally from a 2-0 deficit. Jeremy Lin is still recovering from knee surgery and Iman Shumpert is out for the season after tearing a knee ligament in Game 1.

It's possible Stoudemire's difficult season is over. He missed time in February after the death of his brother and again late in the season with a bulging disk in his back, and when he did play had his worst statistical season since he was a rookie in 2002-03.

The Knicks played well without him down the stretch by moving Carmelo Anthony to power forward, where he could take advantage of slower opponents. But asking him to carry so much of the offense on his own is probably too much to ask against the Heat, who are 5-0 against the Knicks this season.

Stoudemire scored 18 points in Game 2, though he didn't get into a good flow until the fourth quarter, when the Knicks could never seriously challenge the Heat. But any hope of carrying the momentum from his positive finish into Thursday's game at Madison Square Garden was lost during his walk back to the locker room.

''We all have done thing out of anger that we regret,'' he wrote on his Twitter page. ''That makes us human. Bad timing on my part. Sorry guys. This (too) shall pass.''

GREENBURGH, N.Y. (AP) Amare Stoudemire says there's a ''great chance'' he can play in Game 4 of the Knicks' series against Miami on Sunday despite cutting his left hand on a fire extinguisher case.

Stoudemire is out of Thursday's Game 3 after a surgeon repaired a muscle in the hand Tuesday. The Knicks are calling him doubtful for Game 4, but Stoudemire says he's ''not totally sure yet.''

Stoudemire, wearing a large wrap around his hand, says he has reason for hope because ''I just persevere through a lot of injuries and work hard to recover from injuries.''

He says he punched the case out of anger Monday after the Knicks fell behind 2-0 and wasn't trying to injure himself, adding there was only a small piece of glass that he hit.

Behind 32 points from LeBron, the Heat win easily in New York and take a commanding 3-0 series lead. The loss was the Knicks 13 consecutive in the playoffs, a new postseason record.

That block by LeBron at the end of the game on Carmelo was SICK and should not have been called a foul. Can we just skip all this window dressing and get straight to a Heat/Lakers final? Thanks.

This is definately some boring 1st round matchups.

Wouldn't give it to the Lakers yet either. Spurs and Thunder looking mighty good about now.

Agreed, it definitely looks more wide-open in the West than the East. Miami/LA is the dream matchup for me, though. Hopefully we'll get it.
