The Washington Wizards and Detroit Pistons were on different sides of the last-minute heroics in their most recent games. The Wizards are coming back from a trip to London, where they defeated the New York Knicks 101-100 Thursday in the first game the franchise has played overseas. The Wizards got the game-winning points when Thomas Bryant was credited with a basket with four-tenths of a second left following a goaltending call.
A goaltending violation was called on Allonzo Trier on a Thomas Bryant shot in the final second and it proved decisive as the Wizards completed a brilliant 101-100 victory.

Trailing 100-99 with three seconds remaining, the Wizards set up a pick-and-roll with center Thomas Bryant and guard Bradley Beal. Bryant broke free when the Knicks double-teamed Beal after the pick, and Beal found a driving Bryant in the lane. Bryant, 6-11, was in prime position to flush the bucket home, but 6-5 Allonzo Trier leapt into the lane to deny Bryant when he chose to finger roll what would have been the go-ahead score.
