Knicks Clipped By Wizards On Last Second Shot
Bradley Beal scored on a driving layup with six seconds left in the game to lift the Washington Wizards over the New York Knicks 102-101 on Monday night.
Beal led the Wizards with 21 points and was key in erasing Washington's six-point fourth quarter deficit. Martell Webster had 30 points on the night.
The Knicks failed to use one of their remaining timeouts following Beal's make, and Carmelo Anthony's last second three at the buzzer did not fall.
"We told them that we had the foul to give and you have to take it."said Knicks head coach Mike Woodson. "[Udrih] couldn't even reach to grab the guy to take the foul. That's where the breakdown occurred. And then I didn't call the timeout, so I gotta take the heat for that."
With the win, the Wizards break their 10-game losing streak at Madison Square Garden, and the defeat for the Knicks is just another hurdle in their already dismal season.
The 7-17 Knicks face the Bucks in Milwaukee on Wednesday night.
