Tonight, the New York Knicks take on the Atlanta Hawks at Madison Square Garden, starting at 7:30pm. The key to tonights game will be containing two players. Al Horford who has played well against the Knicks but has been red hot of late and Jeff Teague, the elusive point guard. Two positions the Knicks have trouble defending and two players who have the ability to light it up.
For the Knicks, I’ll be interested to see if Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith can bounce back from last nights debacle. The two players scored a combined 5 points against the Celtics on 1 for 9 shooting. The lack of production from the shooting guard position has to improve if the Knicks are to get back into this.
Tonights Knicks starting lineup is Pablo Prigioni, Iman Shumpert, J.R. Smith, Carmelo Anthony and Andrea Bargnani. They will wear their white uniforms instead of the hideous orange ones they were scheduled to wear. The orange Knicks and red Hawks confused viewers during their last matchup.
