Default Atlanta Hawks and NY Knicks 8pm Game Thread

The Hawks (who don't want to win) go up against the Knicks (who don't care if they win). Larry Draw has said Hawks will rest a bunch of players, Knicks have yet to release a list of those out but except it to be half the team.

THE NBA. WHERE TANKING HAPPENS.

If the Knicks had any inkling of intelligence they would rest their six best players like the Nets did. Also, it would be good if the Knicks lost today.

Why would Atlanta not want to win if they can still get the 5 seed?

Trolling as usual?

Knicks want to win this game to keep Atlanta at the 6 seed, and in their half of the draw.

Are you really that scared of Chicago?

They wouldnt want Heat in 2nd round.

But they will not make 2nd round anyway, they are 1st round frauds.

I feel a Steve Novak dunk is going to happen. Knicks want to win, Hawks want to lose....Hence, this should be an easy game.

Why would the Knicks care if hawks ends up sixth? They will face the pacers in round two anyways.

Why do you assume that? Pacers haven't played that well recently. I too prefer Hawks instead of Bulls.

Why would the Knicks want to lose though?

I'm surprised they don't want the 5th seed. That's great news for my Bulls. The winner of the Nets/Bulls series would give Miami a much better battle in the 2nd round than the Atlanta Hens.
