Five things to know from Saturday's game
1) The Knicks came out of the opening gates playing very sloppy basketball, turning the ball over four times in the first two minutes of the game. But after Washington jumped out to a five-point lead, the Knicks began to find their groove. Julius Randle led the way as the Knicks went on a 17-0 run during the late stages of the first quarter, pushing their lead to 33- 23 after one. The Knicks fell back into their bad ways in the second, though, and a 17-3 Wizards' run put Washington back on top. But a couple of threes from Kevin Knox and RJ Barrett gave the Knicks a 59-58 lead at the break.
In the second half, the Knicks appeared to right the ship, with Randle continuing to lead the way. Despite a 7-0 Wizards run to end the quarter, the Knicks entered the fourth with an 86-78 lead. Turnovers continued to plague the Knicks in the fourth, allowing the Wizards to regain the lead 90-89 with under nine minutes to play. The teams went back and forth during the home stretch, but Randle made sure the Knicks wouldn't let this one slip away, as the Knicks held on for the win.
