Former Sun treated after punching glass in locker room

May 1, 2012, 1:32 AM | Updated: 5:08 am

If former Phoenix Suns forward Amare Stoudemire was looking to get
his frustration out after going down 2-0 in the series with the Miami
Heat, he might have thought about choosing a softer target.

Knicks forward Amare Stoudemire punched the glass
area that enclosed a fire extinguisher, a source tells @YahooSports.

Yes, you read that right. Stoudemire, sometimes accused of not
attacking the glass, put his fist straight through a pane of the stuff.

Later tweets said that fellow players believed Stoudemire needed stitches and that
there was blood all over the floor of the visitor’s locker
room in Miami.

Officials with the Knicks were not available for immediate comment.
