On Friday evening, the Atlanta Hawks and the New York Knicks will play in an Eastern Conference game. Atlanta is without a win for the campaign, finishing with a 41-41 record and a loss in the NBA Play-in Tournament. New York, on the other hand, is winless in this season and went 47-35 in the previous campaign before making it to the Eastern Conference Semifinals. The Knicks have prevailed in 5 of the past 6 meetings in Atlanta, while both sides split their 4 regular-season encounters the previous year.
In their season debut at Madison Square Garden against a formidable Boston squad, New York lost 108-104. Regarding the game’s specifics, the Knicks shot a pitiful 37.1% from the perimeter. That they were able to stay together at that number is surprising. However, they were able to make 43.9% of their attempted three-point shots. Immanuel Quickley and RJ Barrett each scored 24 points on their own. Julius Randle scored 14 points and pulled down 11 rebounds to record a double-double.
This summer, the Hawks made only a few personnel changes: they traded for John Collins and acquired Patty Mills via the Nets. Dejounte Murray, who played the inaugural season with the squad last year and averaged 20.5 points and 6.1 assists, was also extended.
The Hawks fell short of the Hornets 116-110 on their travels on Wednesday in their first game of the season. In Atlanta’s first-round loss to Charlotte, they were merely outmatched. On field goal percentage with 50.0 vs. 41.9, 3-point percentage having 29.7 vs. 17.2%, and rebounding with 51 vs. 42, the Hornets prevailed over them.
The Hawks didn’t make any particularly significant off-season additions, despite being rather busy. They acquired Patty Mills through a trade from the Thunder and selected Michigan native Kobe Bufkin with their first-round selection choice.
