Atlanta Hawks vs. New York Knicks Odds For Game 2

Game 1 between the Hawks and Knicks ended with Trae Young breaking New Yorker’s hearts with just 0.9 seconds left on the click.  The game ended 107-105 in favor of Atlanta and first blood to the Hawks. Silencing Madison Square Garden seemed to fire up the Hawks and if they can do the same on Wednesday night they’d take a 2-0 lead back home for the next two games of the series.

It’s vital for the Knicks to level the series tonight and the sportsbooks do make them betting favorites to do so. In the Hawks vs Knicks odds market, the Knicks are -126 to emerge victorious on the night.

Atlanta Hawks Preview

Making his first ever start in the playoffs didn’t cause any problems to Trae Young who stole the show in game 1 of this series. Young tallied 32 points on the night and 10 assists!

The Hawks will be relying on more of the same from Young tomorrow night and will need to keep their cool in the midst of what will be a very hostile crowd at Madison Square Garden.

If Trae Young can’t produce more of the same heroics, it will be vital that Clint Capela steps up to the plate after just a steady performance in game 1. He’ll simply have to produce more end product and stop Julius Randle if the Hawks are to overcome the Knicks on the night.   

New York Knicks Preview

As mentioned above, the Knicks have to take game 2. With huge crowd support behind them, they need to take advantage of that to level the series ahead of back-to-back road games.

To avoid that scenario it is up to RJ Barrett and Julius Randle to deliver. Both struggled in game 1 and will need to step up to the plate on Wednesday night.  Managing just 29 points between them is nowhere near enough if they want to topple Trae Young and co. 

If they can make a faster start (they were 8 points down in the first quarter in game 1) and get a fiery Garden behind them, Randle and Barrett and carry the team forward to level up the series. The Knicks can use memories of beating up the Hawks in the regular season to draw level.
