The Knicks are somehow already returning to Atlanta for a second time in the first eleven games. The Knicks had a weird game in their last time in Atlanta. They handedly kicked the Hawks’ ass almost the entire game, which was the road opener of the season (the second game of the Knicks season overall), and then, in the last minute or so, the Knicks just started inexplicably turning the ball over and allowing Atlanta to make it a game, and had it not been for an epic defensive play by Mitch altering what should have been an easy Capela layup, the Knicks might have lost that game in one of the most shocking losses of the last few years.
So the Knicks should hopefully be able to avoid that bizarre late collapse and just kick the Hawks’ ass like normal. The Hawks are on the second half of a back-to-back, which is nice for the Knicks. Trae Young missed the previous game due to the birth of his kid, but he’s back tonight.
RJ might be out due to migraines, but hopefully he can play.
A winning record after 11 games would be swell, so let’s hope that they get it!
Let’s go, Knicks!
