In both Game 1 and in the overall series, the oddsmakers see this series as one that could go either way. While the Hawks may have Trae Young, the Knicks do technically have the advantage shooting the deep ball. Overall, the New York Knicks’ more physical style of play on both offense and defense gives them the edge in the NBA Playoffs, where that style of play is given a longer leash than in the regular season. The size, shooting and physicality of the Knicks will be the factors that give them the edge in this series.
