Patrick ClarkeCorrespondent IMarch 2, 2013

The New York Knicks are starting to heat up, winning their third consecutive game on Friday night in the nation's capital.

Despite a slow start and a 19-point third quarter, the Knicks beat the Washington Wizards on the road, 96-88. New York's victory was keyed by Carmelo Anthony, who led all scorers with 30 points on 10-of-24 shooting from the field.

Raymond Felton, who played a key role in the fourth quarter, chipped in 23 points and four assists for the Knicks. 

Washington was led by rookie shooting guard Bradley Beal, who scored 29 points and grabbed 11 rebounds. John Wall finished with 16 points and six assists for the Wizards, who were outscored 23-11 in the fourth quarter after taking a four-point lead into the final period.

The Knicks won despite struggling from downtown, connecting on just 8-of-28 three-point attempts as a team (28.6 percent). But the Wizards certainly didn't help themselves, missing 10 free throws on Friday night (19-of-29 as a team).


Player of the Game: Carmelo Anthony

Another night, another 30 points poured in by Carmelo Anthony. Two nights after lighting up the Golden State Warriors for 35 points in a win, Melo showed no signs of fatigue, getting to the foul line early and hitting a huge 3-pointer late to put the game away.

Melo also snared six rebounds, recorded three assists and forced two steals.


Up Next for the Knicks

New York's win is its third straight overall, and runs its season record to 35-20. The Knicks will return home now where they'll host the Miami Heat on Sunday afternoon in a marquee matchup.

After that, New York will hit the road to take on Cleveland on Monday and Detroit on Wednesday.


Up Next for the Wizards

The loss drops the Wizards to 18-39 overall this season. Washington will host the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday before heading out on a two-game road trip where it'll play at Minnesota on Wednesday and at Brooklyn on Friday.
