WASHINGTON (AP) — The New York Knicks’ deconstruction project hit a new low Wednesday night with a 101-91 loss to the Washington Wizards, setting a record for longest in-season losing streak in the proud franchise’s 69-year history.
The defeat was the Knicks’ 13th in a row, surpassing the mark set at the end of the 1984-85 season, and their 23rd in 24 games. It featured all the now-familiar follies and a few new ones: passes that went nowhere, shots that became bricks, and Tim Hardaway Jr.’s bizarre decision to pass the ball away from the basket when he had a two-on-one fast break right in front of him.
John Wall had 18 points and eight assists for the Wizards, who avoided slipping in an obvious trap game after a tough five-game road trip.
Jose Calderon scored 17 points for the Knicks, whose roster requires a flow chart these days just to keep up.
