New York Knicks vs Atlanta Hawks Preview
The Knicks burnt us on Monday with some uncharacteristically sloppy defence in crucial stages, but I’m willing to bet they’ll learn from those mistakes ahead of Game 2.
The pressure of playing playoff basketball at the Garden for the first time since 2013 no doubt played a part, so hopefully New York’s nerves are a little more settled now as they look to even things up.
The trends suggest the Knicks are a good bet considering they’ve played to an outstanding 19-12 record after a loss this year against the spread, while I’d also be very surprised if their elite defence gave up 32 points to Trae Young again.
Overall, the Hawks aren’t a very good defensive team and the Knicks are, so I think we’ll see the script flipped in Game 2.
