Atlanta Hawks at New York Knicks

February 22, 2012

The sizzling hot New York Knicks play host to the Atlanta Hawks in Madison Square Garden Wednesday February 22. The Knicks are enjoying recent success and are amidst “Linsanity” as newcomer Jeremy Lin has brought game to MSG once again. Nevertheless, the Knicks lost Monday night to the New Jersey Nets and their record dropped to 16-17 overall. The Hawks are 19-13 overall and lost a tough game to Chicago Monday night.

The Hawks have a balanced attack on offense. Four players average double figures in scoring with Joe Johnson leading the way with 17.6 points per game. Josh Smith chips in with 16 point per game and leads the team in rebounding with 9.6 a game.

The Knicks leading scorer Carmelo Anthony has recently returned to action and is scoring at a pace of 21.8 per game. Lin is leading the team with 5.7 assists per game and is averaging 14.6 points as well. Tyson Chandler leads the Knicks in rebounding with an average of 9.6 per game.

New York holds the head-to-head advantage over Atlanta. The Knicks are 7-3 SU and ATS in the last ten games between the two teams. The total has been OVER 6 times during those same 10 games.

The Hawks are in a tailspin of late as they are 1-4 SU over their last five games. The only win during that run was against the Phoenix Suns. The Knicks are 3-2 SU in their last five games including a 104-97 win against Dallas.

The Knicks have played much better ball of late than the Hawks. They are getting used to all the hype and craziness that Lin has brought to MSG. In this matchup, the Knicks should be victorious SU and ATS against the Hawks. The Hawks are quickly heading in the wrong direction after a very strong start.
