ANALYSIS

The Knicks travel to Atlanta as both teams try to bolster their position in the Eastern Conference and enter the all star break on a high note. This is the fourth and final matchup this season between the recent rivals with the Hawks taking two of three thus far. 

The Knicks (32-27) have been playing solid basketball the past few weeks and are coming off an impressive 124-106 win against the Nets behind 40 points from Jalen Brunson.
