-Wizards 113 Knicks 102: Well, Isiah and the Knicks didn’t take long to wipe out any good feelings over their last game. Facing a pathetic Washington team, New York gave a lackluster effort again in the loss.

Eddy Curry had another good game, 22 points and 11 rebounds, but he didn’t have much support. Marbury and Francis combined for 26 points on 33% shooting with only seven assists. Gilbert Arenas ripped the Knicks for 38 points and Antawn Jamieson added 33 in the win.

-Devils 2 Montreal 1: Patrik Elias scored with seven seconds left in overtime to give New Jersey the win.

-Mets trade for Burgos: This is interesting from the standpoint of where the Mets go next. They don’t really need Burgos for the bullpen, unless they are trading Heilman. Maybe he is going to the A’s for Harden? Stay tuned…..
