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.
Re: Wizards lose in NY, now 0-21 on road for season
Knicks end skid, keep Wizards winless on the road -- The AP reports: Amare Stoudemire shook the basket with his dunks. Raymond Felton found his shooters on the wings, and knocked down his own shots when left open. The New York Knicks looked right again, and it sure helped that the Washington Wizards do everything wrong on the road—even something as simple as getting dressed Monday night. Stoudemire ended a mini-slump with 30 points, and the Knicks snapped a six-game losing streak and dropped the Wizards to 0-21 on the road with a 115-106 victory... Felton ended his dismal stretch with 17 points and 15 assists as the Knicks (23-21) avoided falling back to .500 with what would have been their longest skid of the season—and with Miami visiting Thursday... Nick Young scored 22 points for the Wizards, now more than halfway to the NBA’s first winless road mark in an 82-game schedule. They are closing in on the longest road skid to open a season, 29 straight losses by the Dallas Mavericks during the 1992-93 season.
