The New York Knicks have caught the Atlanta Hawks in the standings for the eighth seed in the Eastern conference and the last spot in the Eastern conference. The Knicks are playing defense like they want to make the playoffs. They hosted the Brooklyn Nets back on Wednesday and came away with the 110-81 victory and cover as a -2 ½ point wagering favorite. In that game they held a very good Brooklyn Nets team to a poor shooting game with a good defensive performance. Prior to that win against the Nets the Knicks brought the defense in a win at Utah where against they held the Jazz to poor shooting. The night before the Knicks had a major test as they traveled into a Golden St team with great guard play and shooters. New York came away with the win and held the Warriors to poor shooting and a mere 84 points. It seems that the Knicks may have come together on that last west coast trip. It started with a humiliating 127-96 defeat at the LA Lakers. They started well in the first half. When the Knicks came out for the second half they gave up an embarrassing 51 points in the third quarter on their way to a 31 point loss to a playoff eliminated Lakers team just playing out the string. Since that loss the Knicks have won four of their past five games and with help with the free falling Atlanta Hawks the New York Knicks have clawed their way back into the playoff picture.
