Good evening! Tonight begins a tough, critical stretch for the Knicks. They'll play the first of four games in five nights against the visiting Suns, who are pretty fun and good, but just 2-4 since losing Eric Bledsoe. Here's what's up with New York:

Woodson's hopeful Stoudemire can play four games in five nights, but that he'll have to chat w STAT first. STAT had said he probably wouldnt— Chris Herring (@HerringWSJ) January 13, 2014
Woodson said "there was always that thought there" of starting Stoudemire rather than bringing him off the bench. But likes him off bench.— Chris Herring (@HerringWSJ) January 13, 2014
Woodson said he feels it's possible Stoudemire could start closing games more frequently based on how he's playing.— Chris Herring (@HerringWSJ) January 13, 2014
These are the things. The Knicks could reach a FIVE-GAME winning streak if they top the Suns tonight, which is pretty crazy. I hope they do it. I like five-game winning streaks almost as much as six-game winning streaks.
