Seen and heard last night at MCI Center:

KWAME ON AMARE: Yes, there is plenty being said about the ongoing feud between Kwame Brown and Tyson Chandler, the rookie out of high school in the same draft (2001). But what does Brown think about Phoenix sensation Amare Stoudemire, who is tearing up the league this season.

"I saw a couple of his games," Brown said. "He plays strong, he plays hard, he's aggressive. I just think he's in a great situation where there's not a real main go-to guy. They have [Shawn] Marion, but he's young. I think all the guys on their team are young and athletic and I think it seems that they have fun and are getting along fine."

It is not lost on Brown, though, that his situation playing alongside Michael Jordan and Jerry Stackhouse is a little bit different than Stoudemire's.

"It just seems like he's in a good situation," Brown said. "I'm glad it's worked out for him. There's no pressure. You can just go out and play ball. You don't have the best player on the league on your team. You just go out and play. Am I jealous of that? No. Every dog has his day. My day will come."

QUIZ TIME: Only Wilt Chamberlain has more 40-point games than Jordan. How many does Jordan have after scoring 41 against the Pacers on Saturday? Answer below.

QUALITY WINS: The Bulls are, once again, one of the worst teams in the league. However, they have a knack for beating good teams. The Bulls have beaten Portland, Boston (twice), New Jersey, New Orleans, Utah and Indiana.

All of those wins, with the exception of one of the Boston games, came at home.

ANSWER TO QUIZ: 171.
