Emmanuel Mudiay's two free throws got the Knicks within five with 1:02 remaining, and after Morris missed a 3-point attempt, Noah Vonleh's layup cut the Wizards' lead to three. However, Wall's 3-pointer with 12 seconds left made it 110-104. Tim Hardaway Jr. led five New York players in double figures with 20 points.
