The New York Knicks thumped the Washington Wizards 120-99 on Tuesday night behind 36 points from Carmelo Anthony, extending their win streak to 13 and clinching their first Atlantic Division title in 19 years.
The Knicks tied a franchise record with 20 three-pointers versus Washington, shooting 56 percent from beyond the arc. They hit nine triples in the first quarter alone, a season-best for the team.
New York was able to easily survive 33 points from John Wall, stifling the rest of the Wizards team and making this one a laugher by the end of the third quarter.
The Knicks approached 40 points in individual quarters twice, dropping 36 in the first and then 37 in the third period.
