In addition, Anthony, who missed six games due to groin injury, finished off with 15 points, as the Knicks led the scores on the first half having a lead of 25 points, with the Hawks trying to catch up on the second half but failed.

For the Atlanta Hawks which had its 3 straight losses and eighth in their 11 games, Jeff Teague led the scores with 18 points, followed by Willie Green with 16 points and Josh Smith making 13 points; as the team apparently missed a lot of back-to-back shots.
