Saturday, November 27th, finds the New York Knicks facing the Atlanta Hawks in their first meeting of the season. Both teams are participating in a back-to-back set.
Atlanta got the easy 132-100 victory when Ja Morant was forced to leave nine minutes into the match with an apparent knee injury. The Knicks got routed by the Suns.
Last season the clubs played three times with the Knicks taking all three contests. The Hawks hold the all-time record with 197 wins in 380 matches.
New York Knicks
It was a rough night for the Knicks facing one of the best teams in the association. They served up the Suns’ 15th straight victory without putting up much of a fight.
Four Knicks scored in double-figures with Kemba Walker (17) the high point-getter. New York lost every quarter and Tom Thibodeau went to his reserve unit early and frequently given how quickly the game was over.
Immanuel Quickley (16), Evan Fournier (11), and RJ Barrett (10) were the other double-figure contributors. The loss was the fifth in their last eight games.
The Knicks reside in the middle of the board for the key categories with the 16th ranked offense (107.9) and 19th ranked defense (108.5).
Derrick Rose (ankle) and Taj Gibson (groin) both missed the game on Friday and are questionable for Saturday.
While the Hawks were able to win two road games in a row it’s not necessarily an accurate read of their abilities given they beat the Spurs and the Grizzlies without Ja Morant.
Atlanta extended their win streak to seven games in a row and have improved on the road to 3-8 on the road. Although the Hawks didn’t get off to a strong season start they’re turning the corner especially playing at home (8-1).
The Hawks are one of the best teams at keeping possession of the ball tied for first for the fewest turnovers (7.5) and with their recent success have climbed to the top spot on the ladder for perimeter efficiency (40.5%).
Six Hawks are scoring in double-figures including Trae Young (25.3), John Collins (16.6), Bogdan Bogdanovic (12.3), Cam Reddish (11.8), Clint Capela (11.3), and DeAndre Hunter (10.8).
Onyeka Okongwu (shoulder) and DeAndre Hunter (wrist) are out indefinitely.

Free New York Knicks vs. Atlanta Hawks NBA Prediction:
This is the perfect example of two teams headed in opposite directions. The Hawks are on a roll expanding their winning streak to the road while the Knicks are searching to rediscover the early-season Bing Bong that put them in the top of the East.
The Knicks cover the spread 50 percent of the time on the road while the Hawks feast at home covering the spread 77.7 percent of the time.
This should be a motivational game for the Knicks who lost to the Hawks in the postseason and had to experience Trae Young telling the MSG crowd to be quiet. The problem is they haven’t shown much fight to this point so it’s hard to back them beating the Hawks especially in Atlanta.
