Even with stars John Wall and JaVale Mcgee getting the night off, it took the Knicks more than four quarters to put away the Wizards.
Washington had four players with double digit point totals as the rest of the cast was given a chance to shine. Cartier Martin's 24 points led all scorers and Kevin Palmer added 21 points and 8 rebounds in the loss.
The Wizards had the lead for much of the fourth quarter, but a turnover and foul in the final seconds allowed the Knicks to come back. A last second shot by Trevor Booker almost gave the Wizards the win at the end of overtime, but it dropped out.
The Wizards finished Summer League with a 4-1 record, tied for their best ever.
