Bruce Bowen Does it Again

Adding spice to the affair was a late forearm to Stoudemire’s chest by Spurs forward Bruce Bowen as Stoudemire set a screen for Steve Nash coming up court. Stoudemire doubled over for a moment and then had to be restrained from going after Bowen. The Suns dialed up the play on the TV monitor in their locker room and replayed it several times.

"Yeah, that was intentional," someone said.

"Glass jaw!" someone else shouted.

This, of course, being the same Bowen who got under the Suns’ skin so thoroughly in the playoffs last year. [ESPN]
