Knicks Vs. Hawks Final Score: New York Gets Back On Track With 99-82 Win

The New York Knicks took care of business at Madison Square Garden on Wednesday night, bouncing back from Monday's loss to down the Atlanta Hawks with ease, 99-82.

The Knicks seized control of the game early with strong first and second quarters, building a 25-point lead heading into the break and maintaining the lead for much of the second half. As time wound down, the starters were able to have a seat on the bench and get some much-needed rest, allowing the reserves to get a bit of run in the blowout.

Jeremy Lin and Steve Novak shared the team-high honors, scoring 17 points in the win. Lin just missed a double-double, dishing out nine assists while turning it over four times. Landry Fields added 16 points and seven rebounds while Carmelo Anthony finished with 15 points.

Jeff Teague led the way for the Hawks in the loss, scoring 18 points. Willie Green added 16 points, with Josh Smith scoring 13 points to join the two in double-figures. The three accounted for all but two of the starting five's points, as Zaza Pachulia (two points on 1-of-4 shooting) and Marvin Williams (scoreless on an 0-of-6 mark from the floor) struggled.

New York heads to Miami to take on LeBron James and the Miami Heat on Thursday night in a must-see matchup before the All-Star break.
