Wizards survive Knicks last-second shot

Down by 3 in the final seconds, Langston Galloway got a wide-open look from the wing, but his shot came up just short and the Wizards escaped with a 111-108 win in Kurt Rambis' debut as Knicks head coach. Box score

Langston Galloway: unshakeable. After committing what could have been a game-ending turnover, Galloway hits a 3-pointer with 8.5 seconds to play to pull NY within one. Give the Knicks this much: they didn't quit late in games under Derek Fisher and they haven't quit tonight in Game No. 1 under Kurt Rambis.

After review, the refs reverse their foul call on Bradley Beal and call a charge on Arron Afflalo. Knicks would have had a chance to cut Washington's lead to two with a made free throw. Instead, they are down five with 44 seconds to play.

A strong late comeback for the Knicks: Kristaps Porzingis blocks John Wall on one end and Arron Afflalo converts a layup while being fouled on the other. New York has a chance to cut the lead to two with 44 seconds to play.

Knicks have fallen behind by four with 5:46 to play and Kristaps Porzingis, who had 14 points in the 3rd quarter, is set to check in. It will be interesting to see how often Porzingis is involved down the stretch. There were games under Derek Fisher when he didn't get many touches late in the fourth quarter.

Quite a sequence for Kristaps Porzingis: He converts a tomahawk dunk over Martin Gortat, a bank shot in the post and a left-handed runner early in the third quarter to cut Washington's lead to five.

The Knicks are shooting 1-for-10 from beyond the arc and Washington is shooting 10-for-12 thus far. Not a great start for interim coach Kurt Rambis. NY down 11 with one minute to play in the first half.

The most important takeaway on the mini essay Phil Jackson released earlier today to me? I think he's saying he'd be open to hiring a coach who doesn't have triangle experience.
