WASHINGTON (AP) - Taking their poor play at home with them on the road, the New York Knicks allowed Washington's John Wall to score 31 points and dropped into a last-place tie in the Atlantic Division with a 98-89 loss to the Wizards on Saturday night.
Wall registered at least 30 points in consecutive games for the first time in his NBA career, after scoring 37 in a loss to Toronto on Friday. The No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 draft also had seven assists and a soaring block on Iman Shumpert's layup attempt in the closing seconds.
Washington has won three of four games and is 5-8. The Knicks fell to 3-9, the same record as the Brooklyn Nets.
