Keys to the Game
What was the turning point of this one? Well there was never really a specific point in which the game turned, although the Wizards did hang on extremely well for the last six minutes of the fourth quarter.
It was back-and-forth all game long, and the Wizards relied on one thing to take this one away from the Knicks. Three-pointers.
Washington sank 10 of 14 three pointers through the firs three quarters of the game before going just 1-6 down the stretch, but when they needed to hold the lead, it was their rebounding and defense that started to take over.
They may have been out-rebounded, but they pulled down some huge boards down the stretch, either leading to clock resets, easy layups, or just avoiding a transition game from the Knicks.
As for the Knicks, they just made a few mistakes down the stretch. A costly turnover here, a front-rimmed free throw there, an airballed three-pointer by J.R. Smith everywhere and suddenly you're fighting to get back into the game.
It wasn't really a bad loss, just a series of unfortunate events, and a night when the likes of Jason Kidd and Iman Shumpert shoot 2-12 from the field.
