New York Knicks vs Atlanta Hawks game thread

Holiday basketball returns to Philips Arena this evening. Join us!

Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Hawks have struggled at home this season and the New York Knicks come to town on Wednesday evening. Mike Budenholzer's team is favored to win this particular match-up, at least according to oddsmakers, but New York has overachieved throughout the season and nothing will be easy for Atlanta in this spot. Beyond that, Hawks fans get an up close and personal look at one of the game's best young players in Kristaps Porzingis and fun will be had by all.

Stay tuned throughout the evening for all the latest and, as always, let's keep the discussion civil in the comments.
