Recap: Washington vs. New York

Washington, DC (Sports Network) - Steve Novak connected on all seven of his three-point attempts and the New York Knicks claimed their first victory of the preseason, defeating the Washington Wizards, 108-101.

Novak, who led the league in three-point percentage last season, led all scorers with 21 points off the bench. J.R. Smith contributed 20 points and dished out six assists for the Knicks, who lost to the eventual NBA champion Miami Heat in the first round of the playoffs last season.

Star forward Carmelo Anthony started for New York and poured in 17 points in just 21 minutes of play. Amar'e Stoudemire was held out of action after bruising his knee in practice.

Jordan Crawford led the Wizards with 17 points and Martell Webster finished with a double-double, scoring 12 points and pulling in 10 rebounds. Rookie Bradley Beal once again proved worthy of his high draft selection, finishing with 15 points, five rebounds and five assists for Washington.

Newly acquired center Emeka Okafor was suffering from food poisoning and did not play for Washington, which has lost its first two preseason games.

After trailing 38-21 to start the second quarter, the Wizards went on a remarkable 22-0 run to take the lead. Washington was outscored 29-24 in the third period and 26-21 in the fourth, however.
