Rookie Landry Fields added a career-high 25 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as the Knicks rebounded from a 100-98 loss Friday night in Philadelphia to snap a two-game losing streak and win for just the fourth time in 13 games.
Stoudemire, outplayed by Elton Brand on Friday, shot 17 of 21 from the field in his 17th career 40-point game. Raymond Felton had 13 points and 13 assists as the Knicks shot a season-best 59.7 percent.
Stoudemire scored 21 on Friday, but shot only 7 of 21 and was one of several Knicks who couldn’t contain Brand.
