WASHINGTON -- The Washington Wizards are currently bad at basketball. Carlos Martinez . New York Knicks forward Krystaps Porzingis is soaring.Porzingis scored a career-high 35 points in New Yorks 105-102 win over the Detroit Pistons Wednesday night just as Washington suffered a brutal 109-102 loss at the one-win Philadelphia 76ers. The two sides meet Thursday night on the Wizards homecourt.Carmelo Anthony had 22 points and Derrick Rose scored 16 for the Knicks (5-6), who have won two straight. Joakim Noah, who was benched for the second half of Mondays win, grabbed 15 rebounds and had seven points. New York outrebounded Detroit 52-40. Having a 7-foot-3 standout like Porzingis helps with boards and buckets.The second-year big man made 13 of 22 shots from the field, three 3-pointers and grabbed seven rebounds over 40 minutes.He is dangerous, Rose said. For a second-year player that doesnt really know the game like that, for him to come out and play the way he plays is incredible. And for him to be 7-foot-3 and move the way that he moves is kind of crazy. A unique, unique player.Porzingis had 25 points in the first half.Shots were falling, Porzingis said. I was playing my game. My teammates were finding me. I was in good position and my shot felt good.The Wizards (2-9) played without guard Bradley Beal throughout and without much passion in the first half. Philadelphia led 29-15 after the first quarter and largely maintained a comfortable margin and until the final minutes. Trailing 103-100 with 1:10 remaining, hope faded as 76ers big man Richaun Holmes drained a backbreaking 3-pointer.They outplayed us in that first half, coach Scott Brooks said after the Wizards fell to 0-5 on the road. There was about a 12-minute period where we showed no resistance and its unacceptable. We battled back but when youre down a big number and playing catch-up, it takes a lot out of you.John Wall had 23 of his 27 points in the second half. Markieff Morris scored 19 points.You have an opportunity to play the game that you love for a living. So, playing hard should be the easiest thing that you do, Wall said. Competing, making shots, that can all come later on. Making shots, that can come later on. Sometimes youre going to make shots, sometimes youre going to miss shots. But when youre not making shots, you have to be able to defend and play hard. Most of the game, they outplayed us, until the end of second. In the third and fourth we showed glimpses.The point guard played 24 minutes after sitting out Saturdays 106-95 loss at the Chicago Bulls. The three-time All-Star has not played both ends of a back-to-back set this season after undergoing two knee surgeries during the offseason. That is expected to change Thursday, but Washington limited Walls minutes in Philadelphia accordingly.Beal missed his three straight game with a hamstring injury suffered on Nov. 9. Undrafted rookie Sheldon McClellan scored six points in his second career start.Washington won the series 2-1 last season, including a victory in the lone game at Madison Square Garden. Wall had 28 points and 17 assists in a 111-108 win on Feb. 9. Yairo Munoz . -- Five former Kansas City Chiefs players who were on the team between 1987 and 1993 filed a lawsuit Tuesday claiming the team hid and even lied about the risks of head injuries during that time period when there was no collective bargaining agreement in place in the NFL. Marcell Ozuna . Each of Houstons starters scored in double figures as the Rockets improved to 2-0 against the Spurs this season, with both victories coming on the road. They also moved within 3 1/2 games of San Antonio (22-7) for the lead the Southwest Division. http:///...sey-large-1231q.html .Y. - Nelson Mandela will be honoured by the New York Yankees with a plaque in Monument Park. FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The New York Jets are giving Austin Seferian-Jenkins a chance to redeem himself off the field and get his NFL career back on track.The talented but troubled tight end was claimed off waivers Monday from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who cut him last week after he was arrested on suspicion of driving while under the influence.Seferian-Jenkins, in his third NFL season, was a second-round draft pick out of the University of Washington in 2014. He had three catches for 44 yards and a touchdown in two games this season, and has 45 career receptions for 603 yards and seven TDs.To make room on the active roster, the Jets waived linebacker Julian Stanford.The Florida Highway Patrol said in a news release last Friday that Seferian-Jenkins was driving between 75 and 80 mph on Interstate 275 when his vehicle cut in front of a troopers cruiser and weaved back and forth. Sgt. Steve Gaskins said Seferian-Jenkins was charged with DUI and violation of an ignition interlock device restriction from an arrest in Washington in 2013.Seferian-Jenkins refused a breath test at the Hillsborough County Jail and was released by the Buccaneers later that day.We are very disappointed in todays news, Bucs general manager Jason Licht said in a statement last Friday. Andrew Miller. After careful consideration, we felt this was the right decision at this time.Seferian-Jenkins could face a suspension as discipline by the NFL for possibly violating the leagues personal conduct policy.The 6-foot-5 Seferian-Jenkins, who turns 24 on Thursday, could potentially help the Jets in the red zone, where the team has struggled this season. New York is 6 for 16 on scoring touchdowns inside the opponents 20 in three games.However, offensive coordinator Chan Gailey rarely uses traditional tight ends in the passing game. With the addition of Seferian-Jenkins, the Jets now have four tight ends on the roster with Kellen Davis, Brandon Bostick and Braedon Bowman -- and none has any catches this season.Last season, tight ends had only eight receptions, with Jeff Cumberland catching five passes and Davis three.---AP Sports Writer Fred Goodall in Tampa, Florida, contributed.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: https://twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
