Knicks welcome Wizards to MSG
(Sports Network) – The New York Knicks are caught in a three-game losing
streak and will host the Washington Wizards tonight at Madison Square Garden.
New York has lost six of its last seven games, including Monday’s 102-96
setback against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Nate Robinson had 19
points and Jamal Crawford scored 18 in the loss.
The Knicks went 1-3 against Washington last season, but have won nine of the
last 13 meetings in the series.
Washington, which has lost six of its last seven at Madison Square Garden, had
a two-game winning streak come to an end with Sunday’s 105-93 overtime loss
against the New Jersey Nets.
Vince Carter hit a buzzer-beating three-pointer to send the game into overtime
and ended with a game-high 34 points. Gilbert Arenas scored 25 points for
Washington, but finished just 6-for-23 from the floor.
New York will be in search of its first home win of the season (0-3), while
the Wizards are 0-2 so far as the guest in 2006-07.
