The Atlanta Hawks play the Charlotte Bobcats Monday night but here is a little bulletin board material for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

Garden Chairman James Dolan guaranteed a win for his Knicks in Wednesday's game following their blowout loss to the Spurs on Sunday:

"Thanks to the Rangers who brought me a win," Dolan said on stage. "Unfortunately the basketball (team) couldn't do it today. We're going to win the next game, that's a guarantee."

The Knicks were destroyed on Sunday by the Spurs 120-89 dropping their record to 2-4 on the season. Dolan has been unhappy with his team's start and recently said that he expected the Knicks to contend for a championship this season. In an interesting twist that could spell trouble for former Atlanta Hawks coach Mike Woodson who is the current coach of the Knicks. Dolan met with Woodson after Sunday's embarrassing loss.

Would a nationally televised loss to the Hawks on Wednesday force Dolan's hand?
