KNICKS GET SLAPPED SILLY BY THE HAWKS

Chris Paul, Grant Hill, and former Knick, Nate Robinson, led the Hawks in a 19 point beatdown of the New York franchise. New York shot 41% from the floor; which was their worst performance of the entire season. They also put up a disappointing 1 of 10 shots from three point land. For a team trying to put wins together, this game was not the outcome that they wanted.


Chris Paul led the Hawks to an easy win over the up and down Knicks

Although the Knicks struggled making baskets all game, they were still fairly close at the half. However, the Hawks went on a 9-0 run to start the 3rd quarter which essentially put a nail in the coffin. Anytime New York chipped into the lead, Atlanta would respond immediately. In the 4th quarter Chris Paul took over the game and made sure that there would be no comebacks whatsoever.

Rasheed Wallace was the only Knick who played a decent game. He finished with 12 points and 7 rebounds. The team will need more than that to compete with the better teams. With the loss they move to 10-9 and will face a Pistons team who they recently beat by 8.
