Atlanta Hawks vs. New York Knicks Saturday Game Preview, TV Schedule and Betting Line

Carmelo Anthony

The Atlanta Hawks take their show to Madison Square Garden tonight, and Al Horford’s crew is favored in this one (-1) on the road.

Carmelo Anthony has especially liked what his teammate Amar’e Stoudemire has been bringing to the table lately.

“The last couple nights,” Anthony said. “Amar’e has been stepping up big time by giving us another option we can go to offensively. Defensively, he’s stepped up and we’ve had his back out there. We have to help him get better and we have to do it together.”

This one tips at 7:30 PM and whether the Knicks can play together consistently still remains to be seen.

Here is the TV info for that one in case you just wanted to use this poor sailor and leave.

TV: SportSouth, MSG, DTV: 634, 649, 755, 756

Have to go with the Hawks in this one despite Amar’e’s improvement, because of something you probably did not know about the Hawks. Did you know that if the season ended today they would be the number three seed in the West? That’s right if the season ended today the Hawks could have home court advantage in their first two (WHAT!) playoff series. Meanwhile the New York Knicks have won six games all season and lost fifteen. Argument made? I think so, moving on.

One more preview coming your way tonight folks. Thanks as always for reading; join us again tomorrow if you are so inclined.
