NBA Eastern Conference Quarterfinals NBA Playoffs Game 2 (ATL Leads 1-0)
Atlanta Hawks (41-31, 16-20 Away) vs. New York Knicks (41-31, 25-11 Home)

Coverage: TNT

The speed of the Hawks was able to push them past the power of the Knicks in Game 1. Despite putting up 32 points, Trae Young only made one three-pointer in the game. Instead of putting up a barrage of threes, Young showed maturity by sharing the ball with his teammates down the stretch.

If the New York Knicks are going to even the series, Julius Randle needs to step up. This will be a quick series if Randle scores just 15 points on 6-23 shooting. Shoutout to Alec Burks for scoring 27 points on 9-13 shooting in 26 minutes off the bench. But the odds of him doing so again are low. Therefore, the Knicks will need their star to step up, because dropping the first two games at home will spell disaster in this series.
