NEW YORK, Dec. 16 (UPI) -- Bradley Beal returned from an injury absence to score 21 points Monday, including a late, go-ahead basket that lifted Washington over New York 102-101.

Beal, who had missed nine games with a leg injury, heated up down the stretch, scoring 14 points in the fourth quarter.

The Wizards were trailing 101-100 with 5.9 seconds left when the Washington shooting guard drove past Beno Udrih for the key layup.

Carmelo Anthony had a final shot for the Knicks but his 3-point try at the buzzer bounced off the backboard.

Martell Webster canned six 3-pointers en route to 30 points and John Wall added 20, eight assists and six rebounds as the Wizards snapped a four-game losing streak.

Anthony poured in 32 points for New York, which finished 1-1 on a two-game homestand.
