Knicks ‘Streak’ Through DC

The Knicks kept all their streaks alive tonight, beating the Washington Wizards by a final score of 101-95.

The win was New York’s seventh straight overall and eighth straight road victory.

And by scoring a game-high 36 points, Amar’e Stoudemire kept his personal run going as well. Stoudemire tied a franchise record by scoring 30 or more in a seventh consecutive game, tying a mark set by Willie Naulls in 1962.

Stoudemire tied another franchise record in the game — one he would rather have left in the books — with 11 turnovers. He joins Michael Ray Richardson as an owner of that dubious mark. But to his credit, he didn’t let the turnovers distract him from the task at hand; he followed up the eleventh with an impressive block of a John Wall shot attempt and was four of four from the free-throw line in the final minute-and-twenty, helping the Knicks hold off a late Wizard charge.
