Recap roundup: All smiles in D.C.

Rounding up all the recaps from last night's 106-96 Wizards win over the Knicks.


How the Wizards guarded Melo

Carmelo had 31 points, but the Wizards' gameplan in the fourth quarter forced the ball out of his hands.


John Wall's game-sealing hockey assist

With one minute and 50 seconds left, the Wizards clung to a six-point lead against the Knicks. But instead of folding late, the Wizards hit the game-sealing three, and they have John Wall to thank for it.

Here's the play many of you have asked about.


Beal won't play vs. Knicks

Bradley Beal will not go tonight for the Wizards against the Knicks, the team announced. Randy Wittman had called Beal a game-time decision an hour and a half before the contest, but ultimately, the team has decided to hold him out for at least one more game.

The Wizards will once again start John Wall, Garrett Temple, Martell Webster, Nene and Emeka Okafor.

Sheed reminisces about old Bullets

Are you ready for a blast from the past? Here's current New York Knicks injured forward Rasheed Wallace talking about his too-brief tenure with our favorite franchise in an interview with Michael Lee of the Washington Post.

"Man, I think about it a lot," said Wallace, who averaged 10.1 points and 4.7 rebounds in his rookie season. "I understand it was all business and money, but we had a helluva squad here. I wish we could've stayed like two, three years together, just to be able to see what we could've done."


"That it was a helluva team and we could've did some things. ...I think we would've went far in the playoffs, because we were big.

Lee notes that the Bullets tried trading Wallace for the No. 1 pick in the 1996 draft, which turned into Allen Iverson. I did not know about that one.


Beal a game-time decision vs. Knicks

There appears to be a chance that Bradley Beal will be back in the Washington Wizards' lineup for Wednesday's game against the Knicks. Beal took part in shootaround and will be a game-time decision, the team announced:

Beal has missed the Wizards' last four games with a wrist injury originally suffered January 18 against the Denver Nuggets. He played ineffectively for five games before finally sitting out to rest the injury. A visit to a hand specialist revealed no structural damage, and Beal did take part on a limited basis in practice yesterday.

It'll be interesting to see whether Beal is immediately elevated into the starting lineup. On the one hand, Garrett Temple had his best game of the season against the Clippers, so it'd be a bit odd to demote him right away. On the other hand, if Beal starts, Temple still merits minutes, so that might squeeze Jordan Crawford even more.
