Goaltending call gives Wizards last-second win over Knicks

Washington Wizards vs. New York Knicks - 1/17/19 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction Watch: Wizards Beat Knicks on Goaltending Call
Shannon Reynolds | 21 January, 2019, 19:13

NY was ahead 100-99, but Washington had possession. Bradley Beal struggled to shoot the ball, scoring 26 points but making only 10-of-29 shot attempts, turning the ball over seven times as well.

Beal, who finished with 26 points and nine rebounds against NY, is averaging 29.8 points with 5.8 rebounds and 6.2 assists over his past 10 games. They actually got one, but a missed three-pointer gave the Wizards the ball back with roughly three seconds remaining.

That left Washington with one last opportunity. The Wizards ended up coming away with an unlikely 101-100 victory when Allonzo Trier was called for goaltending on a Thomas Bryant layup attempt.

"It was a great play", Beal said. And the first goal is to make it into the playoffs and to do better than we did last year, and to me that will make for a successful year.

"I think from my angle, watching the replay".

Emmanuel Mudiay scored 25 points and Luke Kornet finished with 16 points, including 12 in the first quarter, for the Knicks, who lost their fifth consecutive game. The Wizards reclaimed the lead at 92-91 with 4:34 left on Porter's pull-up jumper.

Another pipeline burst into flames in the neighbouring state of Queretaro, but the Mexican army reported that no one was hurt. Public Security Minister Alfonso Durazo said the blaze had been extinguished shortly before midnight local time (06:00 GMT).

The Knicks were without their leading rebounder and third-leading scorer, Enes Kanter, who stayed in the US because of worries about his safety following his criticism of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The Knicks were up by as many as 19 points - matching their largest blown lead this season.

The Wizards shot 7 for 27 from 3-point range and had a 51-42 rebounding advantage. Rookie C Mitchell Robinson returned after missing 13 games with a groin injury and finished with four points and two rebounds in 10 minutes.

Despite losing John Wall for the season, Washington Wizards owner Ted Leonsis stated that his goal is to still make the playoffs rather than tank for a high draft pick.

"I'm told I'm not allowed to break news today, but yes, it is possible", he said.

Elsewhere, the Los Angeles Lakers recorded an impressive 138-128 win against Oklahoma City Thunder. This chaotic game comes after the Wizards almost upset the top-seeded Toronto Raptors in double overtime on Sunday.
