Knicks Dominate Hapless Wizards 103-65

Instead of Carmelo Anthony, who scored 18 points, it was 6th man J.R. Smith who led the Knicks scoring with 23 points, inlcuding 4 of 5 three pointers off the bench. Baron Davis finally got his offense going against the Swiss-cheese defense of the Wizards, pouring in 18 of his own, as did sharp-shooting Steve Novak.

The Wizards shot a woeful 22% throughout the game, while making 20% of their three point attempts (4/20) and had 21 turnovers!

The Wizards practically didn’t score for a whole quarter, a full 12 minutes in the 2nd half.

The Knicks solidified their positioning in the playoffs and are looking to capture the 7th seed. However, tonight’s win came with a price as versatile wingman Iman Shumpert suffered a sprained ankle after 23 minutes of play. Amar’e Stoudermire is set to return in about a week’s time while Jeremy Lin finally had his stitches removed from his surgically repaired knee.
