THE PORTLAND Trail Blazers overcame Carmelo Anthony's season high-tying 45 points and spoiled Amare Stoudemire's season debut, beating the host New York Knicks, 105-100, on Tuesday night. Nicolas Batum scored 26 points, Damian Lillard had 21 points, six assists and five rebounds, and LaMarcus Aldridge had 19 points and 14 rebounds for Portland. Stoudemire finished with six points on 3-for-8 shooting and one rebound in 17 minutes off the bench in his return from knee surgery. Anthony shot 14-for-24 and nearly led the Knicks back from 19 points down after missing two games with a knee injury, but the Trail Blazers had too many options.

DROPS OF BLOOD stained the carpet leading up to the back entrance of the New York Knicks' locker room. The glass portion of a nearby fire-extinguisher case was quickly replaced. And Amare Stoudemire needed doctors and paramedics to treat a postgame cut on his left hand. Game 2 probably wasn't all the Knicks lost in Miami on Monday night. Stoudemire left the building with a bulky wrap over his left hand, long after the Heat took control of the teams' Eastern Conference first-round series with a 104-94 win over the Knicks, going up 2-0 in the matchup.

Amare Stoudemire's return from a back injury didn't help the playoff-bound New York Knicks, who were stunned, 98-90, by the Cavaliers in Cleveland on Friday night. Stoudemire had missed New York's previous 13 games with a bulging disk. But even with him in the lineup, the Knicks couldn't handle the Cavs, who snapped a three-game losing streak and won for just the fourth time in 19 games. The Knicks are a half-game ahead of the 76ers. Stoudemire finished with 15 points, and Carmelo Anthony had 12 before sitting out the fourth quarter.

AMARE STOUDEMIRE has a bulging disk in his back and is out indefinitely, a damaging blow to the New York Knicks with a month left in the regular season. The Knicks weren't competitive in the playoffs last year when Stoudemire developed a back problem, and any hopes of even qualifying for the postseason are in jeopardy now that he has another one. "You don't wish it on any player, especially Amare, who's a big part of what we do," Knicks interim coach Mike Woodson said Monday before the Knicks hosted Milwaukee.

According to a 76ers source with knowledge of the situation, there have been no talks, preliminary or otherwise, between the Sixers and the New York Knicks regarding a potential trade for New York Knicks forward Amar'e Stoudemire. "No, that's completely false," the source, speaking under conditions of anonymity, said. "There have been no conversations with them about Amar'e. " The source was referring to a report that surfaced over the weekend on CSNPhilly.com. The report said that the 76ers had asked the Knicks about Stoudemire's availability, adding that the Sixers were just doing their due diligence.

The Phoenix bench finally delivered as advertised, and it could hardly have come at a better time. Channing Frye broke out of a horrendous shooting slump by making four three-pointers for 14 points, and the Suns pulled away in the fourth quarter for the second game in a row to beat the Los Angeles Lakers, 115-106, last night and tie the Western Conference finals at two games apiece. A series that looked like a Lakers' breeze a week ago is all even heading to Game 5 tomorrow night in Los Angeles.

Even on a balky knee, Kobe Bryant had no problem giving the Los Angeles Lakers an early leg up in the Western Conference finals. Bryant scored 40 points, Lamar Odom added 19 points and 19 rebounds, and the Lakers opened the series with ruthless offensive efficiency in a 128-107 victory over the visiting Phoenix Suns last night. Pau Gasol had 21 points for the top-seeded Lakers, who won their seventh straight playoff game and snapped the Suns' six-game streak with a phenomenal second half, highlighted by Bryant's 21-point third quarter following an off-week during which he barely stepped on the practice court to rest his litany of minor injuries.

Los Suns ganaron. That means the Suns won. Amare Stoudemire had 23 points and 11 rebounds, Channing Frye made five of six three-pointers, and Phoenix, wearing its orange "Los Suns" jerseys in part to protest Arizona's new anti-immigration law, pulled away for a 110-102 victory over the San Antonio Spurs last night, taking a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference semifinals. Steve Nash and Jason Richardson scored 19 apiece and Grant Hill added 18 in a grind-it-out game played at the Spurs' pace until the Suns started hitting three-pointers.
