The Knicks host the Hawks in another one of those weird noon games that nobody likes playing.
Hopefully the Hawks went out partying in New York City last night (although after what happened to Thabo Sefolosha last year, perhaps they would be a bit wary of partying in New York City) and that the early game time will slow them down. The Hawks lost their last game after Dwight Howard was ejected for a flagrant foul late in the fourth quarter against Charlotte. Charlotte then scored nine unanswered points and ended up winning the game despite being down ten points late.
Paul Millsap is an excellent player, but Porzingis is a bad matchup for him, so hopefully the Knicks go to Porzingis early and often.
Ron Baker was called up for this game. Could he actually see some playing time today?
Let’s go, Knicks!
