The Knicks played the Wizards tight in the first half last night.
Until the final couple seconds.
While New York gave up on the play, John Wall chased down an offensive rebound then made a quick buzzer-beating turnaround jumper. That gave the Wizards a two-point lead, and they then thumped the Knicks in the second half to win, 121-103.
Michael Beasley was the main culprit, but no Knick boxed out or tried to run down the rebound. That was bad enough, but that effort proved to be a harbinger.
