New York Knicks vs Atlanta Hawks: Storylines

The New York Knicks were one of the most exciting teams to watch this season. Their defense was outstanding and their competitiveness brought back life to the Madison Square Garden. Then again, their lack of another scorer, Julius Randle's poor performances, and Nerlens Noel's limited minutes may put an end to their season.

Moreover, the Atlanta Hawks have been just too good over the past couple of weeks. Trae Young rose to the occasion as one of the league's up-and-coming stars and he's been on a roll since the start of the playoffs. They're deeper than the Knicks and look way more comfortable right now.
