The NBA is back in action today as the New York Knicks will clash with the Atlanta Hawk.
Atlanta is heading into this game after a 143-138 double-overtime win at home against Charlotte in their last game Monday night. And on the other side, the Knicks suffered a 122-115 defeat in their last game against the Wizards.
New York Knicks Form
The Knicks are having a bad season so far. Moreover, they are in the basement of the Atlantic Division, 26 games behind the Raptors for the top spot. As for the Eastern Conference playoff picture, the team is 12th in the standings, nine games behind the Magic for the final playoff spot. The Knicks are not showing any signs that they can turn it around in the rest of their games this season.
On the offensive side of the game, the Knicks score an average of 104.6 points per game, good for the 28th spot in the league in scoring. Also, they have an average of 46.3 boards per game combined with 21.6 dimes per night.
Also, their defensive record stands at 111.6 conceded points per game which is the 19th defensive record in the NBA.
Atlanta Hawks Form
The Hawks are another team that is not having a good season so far. Therefore, the team is still in the basement of the Southeast Division, 21.5 games behind the Heat for the top spot. As for the Eastern Conference playoff picture, the team is 14th, 8.5 games behind Orlando for the final playoff spot. The Hawks are not having a good season overall, same as the last season. However, they managed to get a solid win in their last game against the Hornets.
On the offensive side of the game, the Hawks scored an average of 111.1 points per game. And that is the 17th scoring record in the league. Also, Atlanta has an average of 43 boards a night combined with 23.8 assists per contest. As for the defensive side of the game, Atlanta is 29th in the league in scoring defence as they allow opponents to score 119.2 points per game this season.
Both sides are having a bad season so far. However, the Knicks seems to be the team that suffers from fatigue as they cannot withstand back to back games. On the other side, the Hawks got a valuable win in their last game against the Hornets. Also, they are playing at home and I expect a second win in a row for them. Take Atlanta in this one.
