Nate Robinson returned to play 38 minutes after being fined $25,000 for public asking for a trade after his recent benching. Robinson played over an ailing Jonathan Bender and Larry Hughes who has been dealing with a groin injury. Robinson poured in 41 points, 11 in overtime, somewhat dominating the offensive end of the court against the 21-10 Atlanta Hawks on their home court.
After 14 straight DNP’s many fans suspected Nate would be traded as soon as possible. Nate’s attitude had worn on Mike D’Antoni, but he seemed to say all the right things while waiting for playing time. The Knicks were down 13 points in the third quarter to the athletic Hawks before riding Nate and Chandler’s hot hand to victory.
