Wizards lose in NY, now 0-21 on road for season
The bleeding had stopped, but nobody is ready to pronounce the patient cured. Yes, the Knicks put an end to their six-game losing streak. But they did it against a Washington team that hasn't won a single road game all season (0-21). New York avoided dropping to .500 as the one-month countdown to the trading deadline arrived, and the front office will be keeping a close watch on the Nuggets' relatively easy five-game Eastern road trip to see if a stumble impacts their decision-making process regarding a possible trade of Carmelo Anthony. One sign of how out of it the Wizards were: Reserve forward Kevin Seraphin played the first quarter with his shorts on backward before his amused teammates pointed out his fashion faux pas and he discreetly (well, as discreetly as possible with cameras recording the moment) pulled his shorts off, turned them around and put them back on for the start of the second quarter.
