Washington
New York

[NEW YORK] — The New York Knicks played host to the Washington Wizards last night and Knicks fans will wish that they could have another crack at this one. The narrow 103-106 defeat was and still is a tough one to swallow. The loss bumps New York's record down to 30-49 on the season, while the victory gives Washington a 48-31 total on the year. It's not overly surprising that the Knicks would end up losing this one consider they did little to establish themselves as dangerous threats. Perhaps the showing can serve as an essential building block for the team in the days to come.

While there were no historic individual performances to speak of, Courtney Lee's 11 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, 0 blocks and 5 steals in 31 minutes will serve fantasy owners well. Still, one can't be overly enthusastic about the numbers considering that even Lee himself would presumably trade the solid figures for a different result on the scoreboard. Needless to say, New York will take any win they can get their hands on considering where they find themselves in the conference but this just wasn't one of them.

Unable to match Lee's numbers, John Wall can rest assured that he bested his rival where it actually counts. Wall's 24 points, 1 rebounds and 8 assists led the Wizards in the winning effort.

Individual performances aside, if there's one area where the Knicks can improve, it's on the defensive side of the ball. Though New York wasn't terrible in the ball game, there's no denying that a stricter focus on limiting their opponents could serve them well the next time they collide with a worthy foe.

The loss hurts for the homeside but they'll get their opportunity to regain ground in a pending matchup with the Toronto Raptors. The Wizards, meanwhile, will set their sights on a run-in with the Detroit Pistons.
