5. Milwaukee Bucks 102, New York Knicks 96 – March 25, 2011
This is the only game on our list that comes from outside of Stoudemire’s time in Phoenix, and funnily enough it’s also the only game that you’ll find here in which the Bucks came out on top.
In the days when a red-hot 37 point showing from Brandon Jennings was a real thing, it was no easy task to stop the Bucks from grabbing a W and Amar’e certainly found that to be true on this particular occasion.
Although he struggled from the field early on in the contest, in what was bordering on an off night at the time for Stoudemire, he still managed to have his fingerprints all over the game as the Knicks just came up short.
Stoudemire would finish up the contest pacing his team in scoring with 28 points, which was three more than Carmelo Anthony could muster on the night. Coming via 10-20 from the field and 8-10 from the free throw line, there could be few complaints about the Florida native’s efficiency. Adding nine rebounds for good measure certainly helped to further round out an impressive individual showing.
