Knicks 99, Wizards 96: Carmelo Anthony's Three Saves Knicks In Washington
Mike D’Antoni should send Carmelo Anthony a fruit basket. Or something like that. The Knicks looked on the verge of a disastrous loss Friday night before Anthony’s three pointer with 15 seconds left saved them.
EXCERPT
They were behind 96-95, having surrendered a seven point fourth quarter lead against the winless Washington Wizards. Anthony surely had his part in the collapse, misfiring on a number of forced shots. But when the Knicks got the ball after John Wall put the Wizards up by one, Anthony knocked down the big shot, saving the Knicks from a loss that could have seriously endangered the future of D’Antoni as head coach.


The Knicks’ win brought them to a still disappointing 3-4, and the Wizards remained winless at 0-7. Anthony finished with 37 points, connecting on 16 of his 33 field-goal attempts. The others Knicks stars, Amar’e Stoudemire (23 points, 12 rebounds) and Tyson Chandler (12 and 15) had good nights as well, but two backcourt reserves shined bright.
