New York Knicks head coach Mike Woodson's future is secure - despite his game-defining blunder against the Washington Wizards, according to Carmelo Anthony.

The Knicks have struggled for form this season, winning only seven of their first 24 games of the 2013/14 campaign.

Woodson's Knicks had the perfect chance to secure their second consecutive win on Monday night against the Washington Wizards - but fell at the final hurdle.

The Knicks had a one-point advantage going into the final 24 seconds with a foul to give.

However Woodson's side did not use the foul to their advantage, which allowed Washington Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal to seal his side the win.

Despite the defeat - due to the Knicks' costly mistake - Anthony believes Woodson will avoid the sack.

Speaking to ESPN after the game, Anthony said on Woodson: "As far as I'm concerned, he's secure right now. I haven't heard anything.

"There's nothing to discuss. He's our coach, and we're rolling with him."

Woodson and Anthony will be hoping their side can get back to winning ways on Wednesday when they travel to the BMO Harris Bradley Center to play the Milwaukee Bucks.
