Hawks Send Knicks To 5th Straight Home Loss
NEW YORK (AP) — Jeff Teague scored 16 points to lead eight players in double figures, and the Atlanta Hawks sent the New York Knicks to a fifth straight home loss with a 110-90 victory Saturday night.
Paul Millsap, back in the starting lineup, had 14 points and 13 rebounds as the Hawks shot 56 percent and won for the fourth time in five games. They avenged the loss during that span, a 95-91 Knicks victory in Atlanta on Wednesday.
This was at Madison Square Garden, where New York hasn’t won since beating Milwaukee on Oct. 30 in its season opener, and where the fans are getting restless.
There were noticeable groans and boos in the arena, along with a few “Fire Woodson!” chants as the Knicks fell to 3-6.
Carmelo Anthony had 23 points and 12 rebounds for New York.
Andrea Bargnani added 16 points and nine boards.
