The Knicks' Courtney Lee says the NBA should investigate Wizards assistant coach Sidney Lowe for interfering with him on New York's final possession in their 113-110 loss to Washington Thursday.
Video showed Lowe stepped on the court and began shouting as Lee set up along the sideline for what could have been a game-tying 3-pointer. After getting a pass from Carmelo Anthony, a wide-open Lee passed to Brandon Jennings, who had the ball stolen from him by John Wall.

"If that was their tactic, their defensive scheme, it worked," Lee told reporters. Lee said Lowe screamed "I'm here" and "my stunt" as if Lowe were a defender. Lowe ultimately was pushed back to the bench by a referee, but only after Lee passed the ball.
"I thought it was another guy rotating down. I'm watching the ball and all I hear is "I'm right here, I'm right here.' And I'm not sure if he had his hands up or not. But he fooled me."
