Game Thoughts:

If the goal is still to finish higher than fourth in the Eastern Conference then this is a game that the Hawks have to win. If that is in fact the goal then they can no longer succumb to the mental lapses that they exhibited down the stretch in Miami. The remaining two games on the road trip are tonight’s against the Knicks and Thursday’s against the Wizards. While it is tough to win on the road in the NBA these are games that the Hawks simply should win against non playoff teams. Its important to get these games before the schedule turns a little tougher at the end of the month. The Knicks are coming off a loss to the New Jersey Nets so they are struggling but remain a team that on any given night can put up a ton of points given the style that they play. Playing solid defense will be key tonight to keep someone like David Lee or Al Harrington from having a huge night.
