Knicks clinch Atlantic Division with 13th consecutive win.
It was a memorable night at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday, as the New York Knicks sealed a 120-99 win over the Washington Wizards.
It was their 13th consecutive win, the longest winning streak since the 1993/94 season, which coincidentally was the last time the Knicks clinched the Atlantic Division.
Carmelo Anthony had 36 points for his 29th 30-plus points game of the season as his incredible scoring run continues. Chris Copeland and Iman Shumpert both contributed well, posting up 17 and 18 points respectively.
As is becoming expected of him, J.R. Smith was also effective off the bench, as he added a further 17 points.
John Wall had an enjoyable night despite the defeat for the Wizards, as he closed the game with 33 points but will be disappointed it was for a losing cause.
However, the Knicks went 20-for-36 from the three-point line and were too much for the Wizards to handle. Next up for Mike Woodson’s men are the Chicago Bulls, while the Wizards head to Miami to face the Heat.
