ks on March 28 and is 8-2 in the past 10 meetings. New York has lost six straight gam
#1
ATLANTA -- With Paul Millsap nursing a sore knee and Al Horford likely out for the season, Mike Scott filled a big void to help the Atlanta Hawks snap an eight-game skid. John Brown Jersey . Scott scored a career-high 30 points, Jeff Teague added 28 and the Hawks rallied to beat the New York Knicks 107-98 on Saturday night. "We were down Paul, down so many bodies," Scott said. "It was great for everyone to come out and play and finally get a win." Carmelo Anthony finished with 35 points and Tyson Chandler had a season-high 23 rebounds for the Knicks, who blew a double-digit, third-quarter lead for the second straight night. New York has lost two straight and seven of nine to fall 5 1/2 games behind Atlanta for the eighth and final Eastern Conference playoff spot. Atlanta began the game without Millsap, who sustained a right knee contusion late in Fridays loss at Detroit, but the Hawks rallied from a 17-point deficit to take a 74-73 lead on Lou Williams 3-pointer early in the fourth. The Hawks, who finished 16 for 31 beyond the arc, never trailed again. "It feels so good," Teague said. "You work hard every day. We come in here and compete. We just couldnt get over the jump the last couple of games. To get one under our belt made us feel really good." New York coach Mike Woodson said before the game that the Knicks were preparing to buy out the contracts of veterans Metta World Peace and Beno Udrih. Neither made the trip to Atlanta, but Anthony indicated the teams problems are bigger than one or two players. "Its same things, different days," Anthony said. "Its starting to get tough to handle. Its definitely tested me. The frustration has definitely sunk in." Scott scored nine straight points to put the Hawks up 33-23 in the second, but New York went on a 33-6 run to take a 56-39 lead on Raymond Feltons long jumper early in the third. Anthony grabbed a rebound midway through the third, dribbled up the court and hit a 3 from the right wing to make it 63-48. He and Hawks guard DeMarre Carroll were called for a double technical foul on Atlantas ensuing possession and Woodson, who was defending Anthony to official Ed Malloy, was called for a technical, too. "I think the biggest thing is a lot of people get caught up in me and Carmelo trash talking, but I think it was bigger than Carmelo tonight," said Carroll, who finished with a season-high 24 points. "Coach (Mike Budenholzer) told me that youve got to learn how to get your guys motivated. If Ive got to talk to our guys to get Jeff Teague scoring (eight) in a row and Mike knocking down 3s and Lou, thats why Ive got to do." The Knicks, who lost in double-overtime Friday at Orlando, fell into another defensive lapse on the perimeter from the closing seconds of the third through the first two-plus minutes of the fourth. Williams began the game 0 for 7 from the field, but hit three straight 3s, and Hawks also got one trey from Scott and Teague to take an 80-75 lead. "We have leads, we have opportunities to win the ball game and down the stretch we get in close games," Chandler said. "Whenever you give up 39 points in the fourth quarter, its going to be difficult for you to win." Scotts previous career high was 23 points at New York last April 17. Elton Brand, the Hawks 15th-year centre, played a team-high 43 minutes, finishing with one point and six rebounds. Another starter, guard Shelvin Mack, finished with just three points after going 1 for 9 from the field. Atlanta outscored the Knicks by 17 points at the free throw line. It seems as nothing is going right for New York. "Im going to keep coaching and Im going to keep pushing," Woodson said. "If it means being naggy or whatever, thats my job. But Ive got to get them over the hump, man. Ive got to get them over this funk that were in." NOTES: Former Atlanta and New York coach Lenny Wilkens, 76, was honoured at halftime by the Hawks 20 years after he led the team to its most recent division title in 1993-94. Wilkens, who last coached in 2004-05, was joined on the court by longtime friend and former teammate Paul Silas, former Hawks centre Dikembe Mutombo and Atlanta general manager Danny Ferry, who played for Wilkens in Cleveland. .... Kyle Korver hit first 3-point attempt, extending his NBA record to 124 straight games with a trey. ... With Millsap injured, the Hawks requested waivers on G Jared Cunningham and signed C Dexter Pittman to a 10-day contract. Pittman did not play. John Brown Ravens Jersey . He looked very comfortable Wednesday night. Konerko had a big three-run double and Gordon Beckham homered for the second straight game, leading the Chicago White Sox to an 8-3 victory over the sliding Chicago Cubs. Mark Andrews Jersey .The result meant Juventus will spend the winter break three points clear of Roma after the league leader beat Cagliari 3-1 on Thursday.Milan remained seventh ahead of the rest of the weekends fixtures, but was provisionally two points behind third-place Napoli in their duel for the final Champions League spot. http://www.footballravensstore.us/authen...ns-jersey/ . With the results, North America claimed 2.5 of the three available points, opening up a 17.5-12.5 lead in the overall standings. A total of 60 points are available, meaning the first team to 30.5 points will win the Continental Cup.(SportsNetwork.com) - The Chicago Bulls hope to get Joakim Noah back when they host the New York Knicks Thursday at the United Center. Noah has missed the last four games because of a sprained ankle and is listed as probable tonight. The Bulls could use his presence and energy in their return home after a two-game road trip (1-1). The big man is averaging 8.9 points and 9.6 rebounds for Chicago, which won its third straight game with a 93-75 win at Miami on Sunday and dropped a 93-86 decision against Atlanta the following night. Jimmy Butler scored 22 points, Taj Gibson added 15 and 17 rebounds, and Pau Gasol added a double- double of 13 points and 12 boards. Derrick Rose recorded 14 points, eight assists and five rebounds in the loss. The Bulls struggled from the field, making 37.6 percent, and connected on six of their 29 3-point attempts. We had a couple shots go in and out on us, Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau said. You have to give (the Hawks) credit. They made big plays. Chicago lost despite a 57-40 rebounding advantage and is 4-5 at home. Michael Crabtree Jersey. The Knicks are only 5-22 this season and have lost two in a row and 12 of the past 13 games. In Tuesdays 107-87 loss to the Dallas Mavericks, Carmelo Anthony led the hosts with 26 points and Tim Hardaway Jr. netted 14. New York shot 44 percent from the floor and made 5-of-21 3-pointers. Amare Stoudemire and Jason Smith scored 10 points apiece for the Knicks, who trailed, 36-24, after the first quarter. I thought the start was not the right way to start a professional basketball game, said Knicks coach Derek Fisher. Guys that start the game need to be mentally and physically ready to play. Fishers team is 2-11 outside of Madison Square Garden this season. The Knicks dropped a 104-80 decision to the Bulls in the season opener on Oct. 29, as Anthony scored 14 points. Gibson and Gasol scored 22 and 21 points, respectively, in that one for Chicago, which will host the Knicks on March 28 and is 8-2 in the past 10 meetings. New York has lost six straight games at the United Center.
