The Atlanta Hawks have been soaring through the Eastern Conference to start the NBA season and they’ll tangle with another East foe when they pay the New York Knicks a visit at Madison Square Garden on Sunday.
- The UNDER is 4-1 in the Hawks’ last 5 road games.
- The OVER is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings.
- The Knicks are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 vs the Southeast Division.
Oddsmakers opened the Hawks as slight 3-point faves with a total of 206.5.
Atlanta is one of the most well balanced teams in the league, and they’re punishing opponents on both ends of the floor. The Hawks own the best point differential in the conference (plus-8.5). Dwight Howard has been everything the Hawks hoped he would be after signing him in the offseason, as the big man already has nine double-doubles through 12 games.
Derrick Rose has fared well in his new digs, but his play hasn’t translated to wins for the Knickerbockers. Rose has scored at least 16 points or more on six occasions but New York has dropped each of those tilts.
