Good win.. Now onto Utah
this is a feel good win...now we gotta buck the trend and win tomorrow
good to see Ma$e get some minutes
Back to back wins would be nice now, stop this win-loss trend since the trade!
Amare was sick in that last quarter.
Well, our guards Douglas/ Carter/ Fields/ and Mason Jr. took this WIN in Atlanta over the Hawks.
Knicks-92 Hawks 79
Mason Jr. made a 4th qtr. statement on Crawful
Headcoach Chauncy Billups 4-guard rotation is better than the 3 seasons of Dantoni's 3-guard rotation...
Great win in a much needed game. Like you've all stated: We must protect our home court & take out the Jazz to stop this win followed by a loss, tough to swallow thrend.
Great feeling to win tonight. We should have won in similar fashion on Friday night, but what's done is done. We can only work on what's coming up next.
I think the greatest part of tonight's victory is not just that we played great TEAM D, but that Melo had a really quiet night offensively but our role players stepped it up in a huge way. We had 7 different players in double figures tonight.
However, We have done this with the gread D against 3 really GOOD teams (miami, Hornets and Hawks) but then totally Flopped against the Cavs both times giving up HUGE number to them. Like you said we have to BUCK the Trend against Utah if nothing else to give these guys some confidence that they can do it night in and night out.
Overall I am happy with what i am seeing. Playing GREAT D every other game I guess is better then what we used to do which was NEVER play D.. So its a huge turn around from what we are used to.
Sixers won again tonight to keep the pressure on us only a half game back.
Hey guys how many of you would like to slip to 7th and play the Heat in the first round instead of the Bulls. I think we get eliminated by Chicago in 6or7 games, but for some strange reason I feel we can beat the HEAT in 5or6. call me crazy
Good win today, nice to see them string a really good 4th quarter together.
Meanwhile the heat are crying in their locker room, love it.
Great win tonight, our defense and teamwork was great.
Great win tonight. We scored at will towards the end of the game, while playing solid D.
Melo really had an off-night tonight while Amare did his thang. Sure he will rebound tomorrow when we square off against the Jazz.
Loved Landry Fields' play tonight, played hard on both sides of the ball and shot the 3 ball well which he hasn't much lately.
This was a must-win and an important one so that we can catch back up to the Hawks and didn't fall behind the 76ers.
Hope to have Chauncey back to run the O again real soon, if not tomorrow night against the Jazz- Next game against the Grizzlies. I don't know if I can deal with Toney running the point any longer. Doesn't pass much which really gets on my nerves. Chauncey our leader and brains on Offense and hope he recovers and is back on the court real soon.

Nice win tnite..
Safe to say Mike D had this team primed and ready to cut heads. Whatever he said to em it definitely got across. The fact it was almost like a home game helped as well.
Amare played like the MVP he is. He owned Horford and Smith in this one.
Fields was key to this win also. He played hard-nosed and consistently suffocating D on J.Johnson. He also made big shots.
Bad news: The Sixers won tnite also.
We need another victory tomorrow. Melo needs to bring his A-game..
Great feel good win. Can't wait to win in Utah.
Orange and blue, yesterday, today, and tomorrow...
great win tonight i love seeing the defensive hustle out there crazy how in ATl Amare was receiving MVP chants! on to Utah hopefully the defensive consistency will be there tomorrow and we can climb into the 5th seed
PLUS, CHI has been through the playoffs together already, while this is MIA's first go at it (like us). AND, let's not forget Thibby vs D'antoni isn;t fair for us.
SO, who cares if we finish with the 7th seed. BRING ON THE HEAT!
