The Washington Wizards stopped New York’s five-game winning streak, and halted their own 10 game losing streak to the Knicks, holding on for a 106-96 victory at the Verizon Center on Wednesday night.

Ex-Knick Trevor Ariza hit five of his seven 3-point attempts, en route to a team high 20 points, while Martell Webster made 5 of 9 threes for the bulk of his 19 points. As a team, Washington shot 11-20 from long range helping to improve their mark to 13-35 – still second worst in the league.

Carmelo Anthony’s 31 points led the Knicks, who struggled to close out what looked like a victory. After trailing by seven early in the third quarter, New York built a five point lead only to be outscored 36-23 in the final period.

Amar’e Stoudemire poured in 19 and Raymond Felton added 17.

Tyson Chandler snatched 13 rebounds, ending a run of three consecutive games with exactly 20 boards.

New York falls to 31-16 overall, and 12-10 on the road, heading into a Friday night visit to Minnesota (8:00 p.m.).
