Goaltending call gives Wizards last-second win over Knicks

When Bradley Beal felt his legs go out beneath him, likely ending his chances of scoring the go-ahead basket for the Washington Wizards, he spotted Thomas Bryant standing alone in the lane.

The Knicks took a 12-point lead into the fourth quarter during Thursday's game in London against the Wizards, and it looked like they were actually going to win a road game. As a team, the Wizards shot 45 percent from the field and 19 of 44 from the 3-point line as they led by two points with 15 seconds on the clock until the Raptors' Serge Ibaka drained the three to steal the game.

Beal scored 26 points and had nine rebounds and Otto Porter Jr. had 20 points and 11 rebounds for the Wizards, but it was Bryant's bucket - or, more accurately, the one he didn't make - that mattered most.

Bryant scored the game-winning basket on a goaltend with 0.4 seconds left, as the Wizards erased a 19-point deficit.

I'm sure by now everyone has seen the highlights or heard how the Washington Wizards were able to pull out the victory.

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


It is widely believed Durant - who would be required to opt out of the one-year player option with the Warriors - is their top target, though he did his best to evade such suggestions when the Knicks were beaten by the reigning champions in Oakland on January 9. It doesn't matter who has the ball, who makes the plays, as long as it gets done. "Right now we're thinking that the format will be one game".

We can tell you Nagel is leaning toward the Under, but his stronger play is on the side. Washington is coming off an overtime loss to the Raptors, but won its prior two games in impressive fashion against the Bucks and Sixers.

Bryant hopes Washington can start stringing together a good run in the second half of the season, starting against the Knicks.

The Wizards shot 7 for 27 from 3-point range and had a 51-42 rebounding advantage.

NY held a 10-point lead after the first quarter and pushed it to 19 in the second before entering halftime up 63-53.
