The New York Knicks and Atlanta Hawks continue their spirited series on Saturday in Atlanta, with each team entering the game going in different directions. The Hawks are 3 1/2 games outside the final playoff spot, currently held by New York.
This will be the third meeting between the teams this season, with New York winning both previous games. Atlanta’s Trae Young missed the second game because of COVID-19. The Knicks have won six straight regular-season games against the Hawks, though Atlanta defeated New York in five games in the first round of the playoffs last season.
