Atlanta Hawks vs New York Knicks prediction

The New York Knicks could be without Brunson to a knee injury, so it's key to check the injury report before betting anything in this game. However, the Hawks are heading in the wrong direction quickly and Trae Young still isn't around to right the ship. The Knicks are at home where they're 20-11 SU, and they've won 7 of the last 10 meetings against the Hawks. Brunson or no Brunson, the Knicks should win this game at home. The Atlanta Hawks just lost back to back games to the Nets. There's not much left to say for this contest. I'll lay the points with the Knicks.
