Last night at Verizon Center

SEEN AND HEARD

While most of the news out of New York is atrocious, at least there are some human interest stories.

For instance, Knicks guards Jamal Crawford and Nate Robinson — the rookie winner of the Slam Dunk Contest — currently are the NBA’s only set of teammates also to have played together as high schoolers.

Both played at Rainier Beach High School in Seattle in 1998-99.

Before Crawford and Robinson, Baltimore (Dunbar) natives Tyrone “Muggsy” Bogues and David Wingate, who both played for the Charlotte Hornets from 1993 to 1995, were the last two high schoolers to play together in the NBA.

BY THE NUMBERS

28 Turnovers by the Knicks. The Wizards converted them into 35 points.

KEY TO THE GAME

Having the Knicks on the schedule during the last two months is a good way for any team to pick up a win.
