New York Knicks (20-52) VS. Atlanta Hawks(32-40)
This game may mean nothing to the Knicks, but it's something to the Hawks. The Hawks are barely hanging on to the 8th and final playoff spot, and a win over the Knicks could catapult them to the playoffs. They are currently 2 games ahead of the Nets for that final playoff spot.
The Knicks are currently on a 5 game road trip. The last time the Knicks played a 5 game road trip, they were competitive in every game, but finished 0-5.
Against the Toronto Raptors, guys like Jared Jeffries(who had 21 points, 10 rebounds, and 3 assists) and Quentin Richardson(who had 20 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists) helped keep the Knicks in it, but the result was the same.
Let's see if the Knicks can finally win one, as they take on the Atlanta Hawks @ Philips Arena.
New York Knicks
