Current Standings - New York – 2nd in the Eastern Conference (6.5 games behind Miami), 1st in the Atlantic Division (2 games ahead of Brooklyn) Washington – 13th in the Eastern Conference (10 games behind #8 seed Milwaukee).
Previous Meeting - New York fell to Washington 106-96, on February 6th, 2013.
What To Watch For - The Knicks have responded to their four game losing streak by winning back to back games over Philadelphia and Golden State. Tonight will be a golden chance to extend that winning streak to 3 before they head into their Sunday showdown against the Miami Heat. Carmelo Anthony has called this a payback game for the one the Knicks lost in DC a few weeks back when John Wall went off for 21 points and 9 assists. The Knicks need to come out with good energy and not allow the Wizards to hang around in front of their home crowd. Washington has won 3 of their last 4, including home wins over Denver and Houston.
