Lee: Wizards assistant tricked me on final play

Knicks guard Courtney Lee hesitated to shoot a last-second 3-pointer against the Wizards, saying Washington assistant coach Sidney Lowe was on the court and shouting as if he was a defender.

John Wall on the All-Star voting: "Hopefully I'm a reserve. A lot of great guards playing in the East this year. Congratulate to all the guys that start. They've been playing well this season, a great season so far. Hopefully I'll be joining those guys next week."

John Wall scores the last four points to dash a furious Knicks' comeback and then Washington doesn't allow a Knicks' shot to get up on final possession to escape with a 113-110 win. It's only the fifth road win of the season for Washington. Knicks have now lost 12-of-their-last-15 games.

So after scoring 100 points through three quarters, Washington has been held to nine in the fourth with 1:37 to go. Knicks have been hustling with Derrick Rose even hitting the floor for a loose ball past half court. Madison Square Garden is ready to explode if Knicks take the lead. Knicks trail 109-108.

Carmelo Anthony cooled off after halftime with just one point in the third after dropping 25 in the second. But Washington didn't stop scoring, reaching 100 by end of third. Defenseless Knicks trail 100-86 entering fourth quarter.

Otto Porter Jr. continues his impressive season. The forward has 15 points and has shot a blistering 5 of 7 from 3-point range so far. Knicks can't afford to leave him open but they can be caught out of position with John Wall's speed breaking down the defense. Wall has 15 points and 11 assists midway through the third.

John Wall deserves an All-Star return

This would be four straight appearances. It's an easy selection for Kevin Pelton, who wanted Wall in the Eastern Conference's starting lineup. Pelton's All-Star reserves (Insider)

A scorching Carmelo Anthony scored 25 of his 27 points in the second quarter, setting a franchise record for points in a quarter. He is shooting 11-of-15 so far.

Carmelo Anthony, fresh off an All-Star starting snub, is on fire. He has scored 21-of-his-23 points and has made 8-of-10 shots so far in the second quarter alone.

Washington has won 13 straight at home but just four times away from D.C. all season. Knicks have won only once at home since Dec. 22.
