MSG Network is adding a heaping helping of Amar'e to its Christmas Eve programming menu.
The regional sports network will air nine hours of New York Knicks all-star forward Amar'e Stoudemire's scoring exploits, tipping off on Dec. 24 at 6 p.m.
MSGN will showcase nine straight In 60 telecasts, breaking the team's matchups down into an hour, while chronicling Stoudemire's recent nine consecutive 30-point contests during which he broke Willie Naulls's 48-year-old club record of most successive games topping that point total.
The Stoudemire showcase will serve as a protracted lead-in of sorts for the network's Christmas Day coverage of the Knicks' meeting with the Chicago Bulls at noon, which will be bookended by Knicks Game Night at 11:30 a.m. and the Ford Post Game at 2:30 p.m. ESPN and ESPN 3D will also televise Knicks-Bulls nationally.
