So maybe the Knicks do miss Amar'e Stoudemire after all.
In their New Year's Eve win over the Kings, the Knicks offense looked smoother than it has all year and there was some feeling that the lack of Stoudemire, and the need to feed him regularly, helped them cruise to an easy victory.
After watching the Knicks stumble to an ugly 90-85 loss to the Raptors at the Garden on Monday night, it's clear that everyone mistook correlation for causation.
The Knicks offense looked smooth on Saturday because the Kings don't defend very well and because Josh Harrellson hit four three-pointers to jolt the offense.
Harrellson missed all four shots he tried beyond the arc on Monday, part of an inefficient offensive performance overall that drove the Knicks into a ditch.

Clearly, Carmelo Anthony longs to have two of the Knicks’ key injured players back on the court. Actually, three of the Knicks’ key injured players.
“I miss Amar’e [Stoudemire]. I miss Iman [Shumpert]. BD is not even here yet. I miss him too,” Anthony said yesterday, referring to Baron...
TUESDAY AFTERNOON, Carmelo Anthony was joking around about his one-man show at the Garden Monday night. Anthony scored 35 points, but could not single-handedly lift the Knicks past the Raptors.
The jetlagged Knicks seemed in a post-California-trip haze during and after last night's 90-85 loss to the Raptors.
Nobody could get his story straight after this lousy Garden defeat regarding Carmelo Anthony's missed 3-point shot with 10.7 seconds left that would have tied the score. The miss...
Denver Nuggets forward Nene is out of Friday's game against the Washington Wizards with a bruised right heel. Nene previously missed three games with a bruised left foot.
Coach George Karl said he expects Nene to play against former teammate Carmelo Anthony when the Nuggets visit the New York Knicks on Saturday night.
Kosta Koufos will start in Nene's place and Timofey...
