For Stoudemire, a six-time All-Star who has logged more than 25,000 minutes through multiple knee surgeries over a 14-year career, the process requires waging an increasingly strenuous battle with Father Time. Right now, he’s landing some momentum-altering haymakers.

In his last seven games as a starter, Stoudemire is averaging 9.3 points, 8.1 rebounds, 1.1 blocks and a steal while shooting 53.8 percent from the field and 90 percent from the foul line in 21.7 minutes.
