Knicks Defeat Wizards on Free Throws from Douglas by Derrel “Jazz” Johnson

Toney Douglas had his best preseason game of the year as he scored 23 points on 9 of 17 shooting from the field, including three three-pointers, and his only two free throw attempts proved to be the margin of victory as the New York Knicks defeated the Washington Wizards 92-90 Sunday night. Douglas lead the Knicks with 23, and Amar’e Stoudemire, who sat out the game Saturday for precautionary reasons, scored 18 points and added 7 rebounds and 2 blocks. Rookie Russian center Timofey Mozgov continued to impress in his third start, as he scored 12 points on 5-8 shooting in 22 minutes. Danilo Gallinari had his worst preseason game, scoring just 1 point and went 0-7 from the field. Floor general Raymond Felton had 8 points and 8 assists.

The Washington Wizards were lead by rookie sensation John Wall, who scored 19 while dishing out 6 assists and pulling down 5 rebounds. Al Thorton and Yi Jianlian both scored 12 for the Wizards off the bench, while Andray Blatche and JaVale McGee each scored 11 and 10, respectively. McGee also added 6 blocks.

The 2-3 Knicks face The New Jersey Nets tonight at Madison Square Garden.
