New York Knicks
On the year, the Knicks have proven to be a one-sided team. Offensively, this squad is posting 105.6 points per game, which is good enough for 11th in the NBA.
Defensively is where things take a turn for the worse. New York is giving up 107.9 points per contest, which is only good enough for 25th across the Association.
One reason this team has struggled to truly take the next step is because it is hesitant to play Kristaps Porzingis as center. It’s easy to see why the Knicks want to keep him at the 4 — there’s already a logjam at the 5 — but this team plays its best when The Unicorn is acting as a stretch 5 and not a stretch 4.
If the Knicks are willing to go small during significant portions of this contest with Porzingis at the 5 and Carmelo Anthony at power forward, they’ll have a shot to beat a mediocre Hawks team Wednesday night.
On the year, the Atlanta Hawks are just 22nd in points per game. They’re putting up 101.8 points on a nightly basis.
Defensively, this group is 15th in points per game allowed. It gives up 104.1 points on a nightly basis.
With Dwight Howard back in the lineup, Atlanta should be on the up and up in terms of getting above .500 for good.
Look for the Hawks to be much improved after the New Year.

Both of these squads have recent trends that point to their success Wednesday night. The problem is, while we know the Hawks can be inconsistent, it’s the Knicks who have cleverly tricked people into thinking they’re actually good at this point in the season.
