The New York Knicks (18-19) will be looking for just their fourth road win of the season when they head to Capital One Arena for a Wednesday night matchup against the Washington Wizards (21-16).

New York fell at home to the San Antonio Spurs by the score of 100-91 on Tuesday. Despite holding San Antonio to just 37.8 percent shooting from the field, the Knicks lost largely in part to attempting just 18 free throws compared to 34 for the Spurs. Michael Beasley led the team with 18 points off the bench while Kristaps Porzingis, Lance Thomas, and Courtney Lee all poured in 13.

The Wizards won their second straight on Sunday and for the fourth time in five games when they defeated the Chicago Bulls, 114-110. Washington trailed by six after three quarters but outscored the Bulls 31-21 in the final 12 minutes. Bradley Beal shot the ball unconsciously scoring 39 points and nearly finished with a triple-double grabbing nine rebounds and dishing nine assists. John Wall had 21 points and nine assists while Mike Scott scored 17 off the bench.

Tidbits to know for Wednesday's game

The Knicks are just 2-5 in the second game of a back-to-back this season and are 0-5 when that game is on the road.

New York was able to win their last away game when they won by the score of 105-103 over the New Orleans Pelicans last Saturday.

They now own just a 3-12 record on the road this season. It has been nearly a year since they won two straight on the road as it last occurred on January 18 and 23 when they beat the Boston Celtics and Indiana Pacers respectively.

Through Monday's games, the Wizards have been the best in the league at defending the three-pointer as their opposition has only connected on 33.3 percent of them.

That doesn't seem to bode well for a Knicks team that ranks dead last making just 7.7 threes per game.

In his last 11 games (nine coming off the bench), Michael Beasley has averaged 17.4 points per outing. He has shot 51.3 percent from the field over that time frame while also grabbing 6.6 rebounds per game.
