NEW YORK -- Bradley Beal only contributed seven points in the first half and started the second half cold, but the second-year shooting guard, playing for the first time since Nov.


The Knicks are in a bit of disarray, in part, because of injuries. The Wizards are in disarray because of injuries to starters, too.


The Wizards may be in a funk, losers of four in a row, but they're still much better off than the New York Knicks as J.R. Smith appears to be clashing with coach Mike Woodson.


Washington (4-8) is playing its fourth game in five days, but at least it'll be at home.


FINAL: New York 98, Washington 89

BALTIMORE -- Again, the Wizards played a game that was basically home court.
