The Washington Wizards tonight will get one final crack at the New York Knicks, to whom they have lost three times this season while giving up 121.3 points a game.



Ed Tapscott said he hopes that he and his players can apply lessons learned from Wednesday’s 128-122 loss to the Knicks, and that he’ll make adjustments to the Wizards’ pick-and-roll schemes after seeing his player fail so miserably at executing what he and his assistants had planned.


“If you have a strategy that causes stress, get rid of it,” Tapscott said.


By simplifying the Wizards’ defensive strategy, Tapscott hopes to see better rebounding tonight, opposed to Wednesday when the Knicks had 19 offensive rebounds and the Wizards had just 17.


No changes in the starting lineup tonight for the Wizards, but once again, look to get a heavy dose of Nick Young off the bench.
