Familiar ending. John Wall and the Wizards fell to 0-21 on the road with a 115-106 loss at the New York Knicks Monday night.
Forward Andray Blatche struggled mightily for the Wizards scoring just 6 points on 2-10 shooting and his coach, Flip SAunders, skewered Blatche after. “He was terrible, he was bad. He was bad. He didn’t look like he had energy or something. He didn’t have it. When you’re a quote-unquote go-to guy you can’t have those kind of games. You gotta get some energy and find a way to produce,” Saunders said.
John Wall had 18 points and 9 assists in the loss while teammate Nick Young had a team high 22 points. Amar’e Stoudemirte led the Knicks with 30 points.
The 13-30 Wizards get Carmelo Anthony and Denver Tuesday night. The Wizards have been a tough out at home, with a 13-9 record. The road record continues to be a sore spot though. “I don’t know if they were trying to have someone else play to win. I told our guys we can’t talk about the road losing streak. We can’t worry about it. We have to go home and play,” Saunders said.
