The Washington Wizards continue their search for their first win of the season Friday night against the New York Knicks. Neither team has fared well in 2011/12, with New York's 2-4 start coming as a disappointment, given its high-profile addition of defensive stalwart center Tyson Chandler during the offseason. Plus, it still boasts Carmelo Anthony, the league's No. 2 scorer, putting up 27.8 points per game on 45.6 percent shooting.
Washington's last victory against the Knicks came on Jan. 30, 2010, behind 25 points form Mike Miller and a 21-point, 23-rebound outing from Antawn Jamison. Of the seventeen players to see the court in that game, only three are still with their respective teams: the Wizards still have Nick Young and Andray Blatche, while the Knicks still have Jared Jeffries.
Here are more details on Friday's game between Washington and New York:
Game Date/Time: Wednesday, January 4; 7:00pm ET
