Wizards’ Bradley Beal hits the game-winner to beat Knicks for second time this season (VIDEO)

Apr 4, 2014, 11:04 PM EDT

This was a tough shot by Bradley Beal to give the Wizards the 90-89 win over the Knicks on Friday, and an even tougher loss for New York to deal with considering where it puts them in the standings.

Beal evaded one defender on the perimeter, then dribbled into two others before draining the jumper that ultimately proved to be the deciding shot.

The Knicks played well in this one, and got monster performances from J.R. Smith (32 points, 8-of-16 from three) and Amar’e Stoudemire (who scored 12 of his 16 points in the third). But the margin of error is extremely slim at this point in New York, and Carmelo Anthony had one of his worst games of the season, finishing with 10 points on 5-of-14 shooting to go along with nine turnovers.

It was the second time this season Beal beat the Knicks, after his game-winner back in December similarly sank New York’s chances.

The loss leaves the Knicks in a difficult spot, trailing the Hawks by two games in the loss column for the final playoff spot in the East.

    I’ve rooted for the Wiz since 85 & have never seen a Washington Team this close. Wall and Beal included. Guys like Garett Temple, who played a lot before Andre Miller, are all on the bench with smiles and claps. Good vibes from the Wiz, with some bad dudes like Gortat and Harrington to keep it edgy.

      Arenas, Butler, Jamison were awesome until injuries. Chaeney, Howard, Webber, rod Strickland too, but the East was hard when they played and had to face prime MJ.
