John Wall carries Wizards over Knicks
John Wall's made 2 clutch free throws with 32.6 seconds left in the game to lift the Washington Wizards to a 113 to 110 victory over the New York Knicks. After a missed shot by the Knicks after those free throws, John Wall used his speed and crossed up Brandon Jennings in the open court for a layup.
Wall finished with 29 points and 13 assists. With 13 seconds remaining, Carmelo Anthony tried to get a shot off, but he passed it around and the team couldn't get a shot off in time. Despite that, Anthony had 25 points in the second quarter, and scored 34 points overall. He didn't come up clutch when he needed to once again.
Derrick Rose also had 20 points for the Knicks. Marcin Gortat recorded a double-double with 12 points and 12 rebounds for the Wizards. Otto Porter Jr. had 23 points and 6 rebounds. These teams will play each other 2 more times this season.
