As Jason Kidd slumps, Knicks still handle Wizards
But after his 3-pointer with about 4 minutes left pulled Washington within 87-86, the Knicks held the Wizards without a field goal the rest of the way.
“We had, I think, three or four … open-floor turnovers, where we didn’t get a shot and in a tight game, got to get an attempt,” Wizards coach Randy Wittman said. “Taking care of the ball, down (in) crunch time, is the main thing that I think we’ve got to concentrate (on) and do a better job.”
John Wall had 16 points, six assists and five turnovers for Washington. Trevor Ariza scored 15, and Emeka Okafor finished with 11 points and 10 rebounds. The Wizards were held to 42 percent shooting.
The Wizards were up 77-73 at the start of the fourth quarter, but missed seven field-goal attempts in a row over a 4-minute span and New York scored 10 straight points.
In one key sequence that began with Washington leading 77-75, Beal missed a 3-point try at one end, allowing Kidd to head the other way all alone. Wall gave chase and, just as Kidd tried to lay the ball in, the Wizards guard swiped his hand to block it. Goaltending was called, and Wall leaped in the air and punched a fist in anger, earning a technical, too. Anthony made the free throw to give New York a lead, and it never trailed again.
“It’s up to Coach. We’ll see what Coach wants to do,” Kidd said. “We had some success with it tonight. We’ll see what comes for Sunday.”
