Tommy Beer @TommyBeer
This is the type of stuff we’ve seen far too often from Randle this season…
Wants a foul call. Doesn’t hustle back on defense. Lazily jogs back up the floor. Because he late getting back, he’s forced into a mismatch. Then plays horrible individual defense as a cherry on top pic.twitter.com/vTvI864NlM8:57 PM

Chris Miller @cmillsnbcs
Most points in a qtr this season.
Steph Curry (25)
Kemba Walker (23)

I notice the Knicks’ head coach is back communicating with Kemba Walker. At least during a game he flexed for 28 b4 intermission. Funny how that works… – 8:46 PM

“Performance matters. If you’re playing well, you’re gonna be in there. That’s the way it works. I love Kemba. But I’ve got to do what’s best for the team. So he’s playing great basketball. All credit in the world to him. But the team winning is the most important thing.” – Thibs – 8:42 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
The Wizards go into halftime down 6 to the Knicks. Could be worse, as Kemba Walker went off for 27 points on 9-14 FG. MSG fans were chanting his name at the end of the half. – 8:35 PM

Jeff Eisenband @JeffEisenband
“He thinks he’s back in the Big East.” -Clyde on Kemba tonight – 8:35 PM

New York Knicks @nyknicks
KEMBA. – 8:35 PM

Fred Katz @FredKatz
What an outrageous quarter from Kemba Walker, with a flailing buzzer beater to close it.
22 points in the quarter on 8-for-12 shooting and 3-for-6 3-point shooting. Also had four rebounds and two assists. – 8:35 PM

Fred Katz @FredKatz
That Kemba floater scraped the moon. – 8:32 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
With Kemba Walker lighting it up on offense, the Wizards have switched Deni Avdija over to guard him. Avdija has been their best on-ball defender this year. We’ll see how he does. – 8:31 PM

Corey Kispert with a perfect start in his first career NBA start (at MSG no less) with 10 points on 4-4 shooting in 11 minutes. – 8:14 PM

Josh Robbins @JoshuaBRobbins
Corey Kispert’s career-high point total as a rookie this season is 13 points. Tonight, in his first NBA start, he has 10 points with 9:52 remaining in the second quarter. – 8:13 PM

Washington Wizards @WashWizards
Maybe the highest pass thrown in the league this season..
But it worked 👀 pic.twitter.com/PaI9HAjiQ68:12 PM

Fred Katz @FredKatz
The Knicks would fare quite well if basketball were just a high jumping competition between every team’s centers. – 8:12 PM

Tommy Beer @TommyBeer
Oh so it’s Corey Kispert is the random player that’s gonna have a career high against the Knicks tonight? – 8:11 PM

Ava Wallace @avarwallace
Double digits for Corey Kispert in his first career start tonight. He’s 2-2 from three and the Wizards are up 38-32 at MSG. – 8:11 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
Corey Kispert so far in his first NBA start: 11 min, 10 pts, 4-4 FG, 2-2 3PT

#DCAboveAll | @CapitalOne8:09 PM

Josh Robbins @JoshuaBRobbins
The Wizards lead the Knicks 31-27 at the end of the first quarter. This has been one of the offense’s better performances, with the team shooting 11 for 21 from the field. Spencer Dinwiddie has three points, three rebounds, four assists and one block. – 8:08 PM

Fred Katz @FredKatz
Through one quarter, the Wizards lead the Knicks 31-27.
• Randle 6 & 2
• Kispert 7 pts
• Dinwiddie 3-3-4
Knicks had only two assists in the first quarter. – 8:07 PM

Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
Wes Unseld Jr. gets burned not taking a timeout when Montrezl Harrell first takes a shot to the face/eye.
Spencer Dinwiddie misses a layup 4 on 5 and then Knicks get a dunk for Trezz’s man (Sims).
Then Unseld has to burn the timeout next offensive possession anyways. – 8:01 PM

New York Knicks @nyknicks
Watch ya’ head, Jericho‼️ pic.twitter.com/8HnFm7xZ0R8:01 PM

Fred Katz @FredKatz
Thibs is basically using Taj Gibson as a wing this week. He guarded Cory Joseph on Tuesday, when Knicks were shorthanded. Taking on Deni Avdija tonight, when the Knicks have some guys back. Picked up Spencer Dinwiddie in transition. I’ll tell you what; I did not see this coming. – 7:59 PM

Fred Katz @FredKatz
We’re seeing this look with Randle, Gibson and a center again, even though Toppin is available. Not sure what to make of it. – 7:56 PM

Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
The Pistons made eight 3-pointers against the Knicks on Tuesday. They’ve already made five against the Heat tonight with 4:29 left in the first quarter – 7:56 PM

Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
As long as defenses continue to give Deni Avdija right hand driving lanes, he’s going to continue to take advantage – 7:55 PM

David Aldridge @davidaldridgedc
Wes Unseld, Jr., says pregame that Rui Hachimura will likely dress tonight in New York against the Knicks, but won’t play. He says this is the next step in getting Hachimura ready to get back on the floor. – 6:10 PM
