The New York Knicks have been in a slump as they’ve lost

in the second quarter by 39-18 to lead by as many as 18 points, before they
fell to pieces in the second half where the Wizards outscored them by 68-45.
Still, the Knicks hung in the contest until the fourth quarter where the
Wizards used a decisive 18-7 run to steal the game late.
Meanwhile, the Atlanta Hawks have been in decent form as they've split their last eight games and they will be looking to build some momentum after outlasting the Hornets in a 143-138 double overtime win on Monday. Trae Young led the team with 31 points and 16 assists, John Collins added 28 points with 11 rebounds and two blocks while Cameron Reddish chipped in with 22 points on eight of 14 shooting off the bench.
