Anthony scores 30 as Knicks beat Wizards

NEW YORK (AP) — Carmelo Anthony scored 30 points, including a tiebreaking three-point play with 13.9 seconds left, and the New York Knicks overcame a 10-point deficit late in the third quarter to beat the Washington Wizards 103-100 on Wednesday night.

John Wall scored 29 points, hitting 10 of his 16 shots from the field, and Otto Porter Jr. added 22 points in the loss for the Wizards, who wrapped up their preseason schedule.

With the Knicks leading 100-97 with 1:22 left on the clock after a 3-point shot by Pablo Prigioni, who scored 12 points, Washington’s Damion James evened it 100-all on a 3-pointer with 33.2 seconds left.

On the ensuing play, Anthony hit a jumper and was fouled. He made the free throw to give New York a three-point lead.

Porter Jr. had a chance to tie the game but misfired on a 3-pointer.
