Knicks Vs. Wizards Final Score: Carmelo Anthony Leads New York Past Still Winless Washington

The Wizards losing streak continued on Friday night with a heartbreaking 99-96 loss to the New York Knicks at Verizon Center.

Carmelo Anthony hit a deep three pointer to give the Knicks a two point lead with 15 seconds remaining. At first glance, one had to wonder how a red hot Anthony had so much room as he was relatively wide open outside the arc. But replay showed Anthony catching Trevor Booker in the face and eye with his off hand. Booker reacted and grabbed his eye with that slight hesitation giving Anthony all the room he needed to drain the game winning three.

On the ensuing possession, John Wall would miss a go-ahead three pointer of his own. It was missed so badly, however, that the long rebound bounced right into the hand of Chris Singleton. Singleton rushed the put back which came up well short. The Knicks controlled the rebound but missed one of two free throw attempts to give the Wizards a chance to get off a game-tying three pointer. Nick Young's heave would draw the back of the iron, however, and Washington would drop their seventh in a row to open the 2011-12 season.

Anthony was on fire in the fourth quarter, as the Knicks continually fed 'Melo both in the post and on the wing. He finished with a game-high 37 points. Nick Young led the Wizards with 24 points, while Wall added 22 points. Wall really pushed the pace in the fourth, hitting a couple miraculous up-and-under layups in traffic. - including one which gave the Wiz the lead before Anthony's three pointer. He finished 10 of 22 from the floor with nine assists and five turnovers.

Washington will now try for the first win on Sunday when they host the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Knicks Vs. Wizards Score Update: Washington Maintains One Point Lead After New York Run To Finish Half

After one half of play at Verizon Center, the Washington Wizards have a one point lead over the New York Knicks. The Wizards enjoyed a 16 point lead early in the second quarter, building on their best offensive quarter of the season - scoring 32 points over the first twelve minutes against the porous New York defense. The Knicks, however, went on a 22-7 run to get right back in the game and cut it to just a one point advantage as the teams went to the locker room.

Nick Young paced the Wizards in their big first quarter with 12 points. He was a perfect two for two from behind the arc as New York's backcourt had no answers on the defensive end. Much like his team, he slowed down a bit in the second quarter and finished the half 14 points. Washington was plagued by turnovers at the end of the half, committing three in a row on their final possessions as the Knicks finished off their run.

Carmelo Anthony led all scorers with 21 points on a hefty 16 first half attempts from the floor. New York has been cold from outside, missing all of their attempts from downtown thus far as they worked their way back from that miserable first quarter.

Washington will need the final half to go more the way of the first quarter if they want to pull out their first win of the season on Friday.
