Knicks Beat Wizards 108-87 to Remain Tied With Nets in Division

Dec. 1 (Bloomberg) -- Carmelo Anthony and reserve J.R. Smith each scored 20 points as the New York Knicks defeated the Washington Wizards 108-87 to stay tied atop their National Basketball Association division.

The Knicks, who improved to 11-4, are tied for first with the Brooklyn Nets in the Eastern Conference’s Atlantic Division. Brooklyn beat the Orlando Magic 98-86 last night.

Tyson Chandler had 12 points and 10 rebounds and Ronnie Brewer added 12 points for the Knicks, who improved to 6-0 this season on their home court at Madison Square Garden.

“Bottom line is we’ve been playing great at home, and we have to continue our winning ways at home,” Knicks coach Mike Woodson told reporters. “It doesn’t matter who comes in here. We’re trying to stay at the top of our division. I’m pushing our guys to continue our winning ways at home.”

Jordan Crawford came off the bench to score 17 points for the Wizards, who fell to 1-13. The Wizards lost their first 12 games this season.

The Knicks and Nets are a half-game behind the leading Miami Heat (11-3) in the Eastern Conference.
