Recap


Carmelo Anthony's 3-pointer with 15.9 seconds remaining put New York ahead for good and gave the visiting Knicks a 99-96 win over the winless Washington Wizards on Friday night.
 
Anthony scored 37 points, including 10 straight down the stretch for New York (3-4). He came into the game as the league's second leading scorer, averaging 27.8 points.

Washington is the only team without a victory and fell to 0-7 for the first time in franchise history.
 
The Wizards couldn't hold a 16-point lead in the second quarter, but rallied from an eight-point deficit late in the fourth. John Wall's basket with 47.4 seconds remaining gave Washington a 96-95 lead before Anthony drilled his clutch shot after a Knicks timeout.
 
Wall missed a 3-pointer and Chris Singleton missed a follow-up shot. After Ian Shumpert split two free throws, the Wizards called timeout, but Nick Young's 3-point attempt from the corner rimmed out.
