Knicks continue to lose following Fisher’s firing
- Updated: February 10, 2016
The New York Knicks played last night their first game post the Derek Fisher era and lost to the Washington Wizards, 111-108 at the Garden.
Interim coach Kurt Rambis couldn’t change much since taking over as the Knicks head-coach, New York missed the chance of sending the game in overtime and perhaps helping Rambis get his first win.
The Knicks trailed by 16 in the first half but made a comeback in the third quarter where for a slight moment managed to take the lead.
Later in the final seconds, Langston Galloway made a three pointer to put the Knicks behind by just one but after John Wall’s made free throws, he missed a buzzer beater from behind the arc that would have tied the game.
Carmelo Anthony scored 33 points and grabbed 13 rebounds while Kristaps Porzingis contributed with 20 buckets. Galloway and Robin Lopez had each 14 points and Arron Afflalo added 11. Jose Calderon was scoreless in just over 28 minutes but dished 6 assists.
The Knicks are now 23-32, 1-10 in the last 11 games and just checked their 6th straight loss.
After the All Star break the Knicks will take on the Nets on February 19th, at the Barclays Center.
