Following a Game 2 loss to the Heat, Knicks forward Amar'e Stoudemire apparently took out his frustration by punching a fire extinguisher glass casing in the New York locker room and cutting his hand, according to Marcus J. Spears of Yahoo Sports.

General manager Glen Grunwald confirmed Stoudemire's cut, but didn't say how.

Frank Isola of the New York Daily News
was outside the locker room and live tweeted the scene once he heard commotion coming from inside.

Ken Berger of was also American Airlines Arena and described the scene as Stoudemire walked out as "chaotic." According to Berger, Stoudemire left the locker room in while security yelled "Get back! All media get back!" A team spokesman said that Stoudemire is flying back to New York and has not had X-rays yet.

ESPN's Brian Windhorst tweeted a photo of what the fire extinguisher case Stoudemire punched looked like and wrote that the "damaged one had already been removed."
