Knicks 101, Wizards 95: Stoudemire Scores 36

Washington, DC (Sports Network) - Amare Stoudemire recorded 36 points and tied a Knicks scoring record with his seventh consecutive game of 30 or more points, and New York continued its road prowess with a 101-95 victory over the Washington Wizards.

Stoudemire equaled the effort of former Knick Willie Nauls, who accomplished the feat in 1962. New York has now won eight straight on the road -- tied for the second longest such streak in franchise history -- and 12 of 13 overall to move six games over .500 for the first time since the 2000-01 season.

All five Knicks starters scored in double figures, including 16 apiece from Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari. Stoudemire also added 10 boards and five assists, but had 11 of his team's 20 turnovers.

Gilbert Arenas recorded 20 points to lead the Wizards, who have lost four straight. Nick Young scored 17 points, while Andray Blatche returned from a two-game absence to post 16 points in defeat.
