Magic now 4-17 after that loss in Cleveland. Next: At Philly, home against Denver, then on the road for Houston, Golden State, Sacramento, and the LA teams. Home against Atlanta and Miami after that. Again: this could get ugly. – 10:13 PM

A lot of clapping and cheering could be heard as the Suns returned to their locker room along with someone shouting, “We run New York.” Red-hot Suns push winning streak to 16 in a row after beating the Knicks and Nets on the road on back-to-back nights. – 9:56 PM

Fred Katz @FredKatz
What a massive performance from Alec Burks on a night the Knicks needed it most. – 9:47 PM
Tommy Beer @TommyBeer
Good win for the Knicks.
Beat Atlanta on the second night of a back-to-back and missing 4 rotation players.
Alec Burks w/ 23 points.
20 for Fournier. 13 points in 16 mins for Obi.
Team-high 7 dimes for IQ.
Game ball goes to Jericho Sims – valuable mins patrolling the paint – 9:47 PM
Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
Hawks’ seven-game win streak is over, as the Knicks win 99-90. More importantly, Bogdan Bogdanovic and Cam Reddish left early with injuries. Can’t afford any long-term injuries to both.
Young: 33/4/7, 10/22 FG
Capela: 16/21, 8/14 FG
Collins: 12/9

Sarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
Hawks fall to the Knicks, 99-90, snapping a seven-game win streak.
They move to 11-10.
Trae Young had his fourth-straight 30-plus point game (33 pts, 7 ast) but overall this was a rough shooting game for the Hawks (season-low 35.5% FG). – 9:43 PM
Fred Katz @FredKatz
The Hawks look like a team on the second half of a back-to-back. Short on lots of jumpers here at the end. Thing is, Knicks are on the second half of a BTB, too, and they’re holding off. One of their best defensive performances in a while. Fighting real hard. – 9:42 PM
Sarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
Hawks down 11 but free Chick-fil-a for folks in State Farm Arena, on the bright side – 9:40 PM
Atlanta Hawks PR @HawksPR
Clint Capela currently has 20 rebounds in tonight’s game. It’s his 22nd career game grabbing 20+ rebounds and seventh time in his Atlanta career. – 9:37 PM
Sarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
Trae Young lop to Clint Capela has the Hawks back within nine of the Knicks, 5:08 to play in the fourth.
Capela has 16 points and a season-high 18 rebounds. – 9:31 PM
Atlanta Hawks PR @HawksPR
With his seventh assist tonight, Trae Young (1,997) has tied Bill Bridges for 14th place in Hawks franchise history … Young ranks 10th in Atlanta history (since 1968-69). – 9:30 PM

Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
Whatever the outcome here, the Hawks have three off-days coming up to regroup. – 9:29 PM
Sarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
Hawks trail the Knicks 90-78 with 7:26 to play in the fourth and are currently shooting 35% from the field, which would be a season-low.
Knicks are shooting 50% FG. – 9:25 PM
Steve Popper @StevePopper
Trae is 5-for-9 from 3 – the rest of the Hawks are 3-for-23. Knicks up 12. – 9:24 PM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
John Collins just made a spectacular block on Obi Toppin at the rim. But the next time down, rather than jumping to contest he slides under Toppin, causing Toppin to hurt his elbow (looks to not be serious) and hitting his own head on the court. #fixthecharge9:24 PM
Fred Katz @FredKatz
If this game is tied at the end of regulation, I propose that instead of a conventional overtime, Obi Toppin tried to dunk on John Collins 11 times. If he does it six times, the Knicks win. If he doesn’t, Hawks win. – 9:22 PM
Stefan Bondy @SBondyNYDN
Gallinari still playing for the Knicks tonight. – 9:22 PM
Rebecca Haarlow @RebeccaHaarlow
What. A. GAME in ATL. Also, Fyi, Mitchell Robinson is available down the stretch. @MSGNetworks9:20 PM
Steve Popper @StevePopper
Knicks going with a lineup that has RJ Barrett as the player with the most experience – Sims, Quickley, Toppin and Grimes along with him. And it’s working. – 9:18 PM
Sarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
Hawks will enter the fourth quarter trailing the Knicks, 85-74.
Trae Young: 31 pts (5-9 from 3), 6 ast
Hawks overall are shooting 8-28 from 3 (28.6%), so the rest of the team has combined to go 3-19. – 9:15 PM
Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
Gallinari should not get beat to his left to end 3Q when Collins smartly plays the clock and helps/doubles to his right side. He has had a tough night. – 9:15 PM
Fred Katz @FredKatz
Through three quarters, the Knicks lead the Hawks 85-74.
• Bucks 23-6-3
• Barrett 13 & 6
• Fournier 15 pts
• Randle 6-6-4
• Young 31-3-6 – 9:15 PM
Fred Katz @FredKatz
Alec Burks making a serious case to start. Not just all the 3s. He’s got 15 points in the third quarter. But there’s the defense, too. It’s not just better but it’s also way more versatile with him out there. Knicks can play various types of coverages with Burks at PG. – 9:14 PM

11/22 vs. OKC (30 pts, 6 ast)

11/26 vs. MEM (31 pts, 10 ast)
Tonight in his first 29 minutes vs. Knicks (31 pts, 6 ast) – 9:11 PM
Atlanta Hawks PR @HawksPR
Trae Young has poured in 30-or-more points in four straight games – the longest active 30+ scoring streak in the NBA this season and tied for second-longest of his career. Young leads the NBA in 30+ point outings this season with nine. – 9:11 PM

Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
The sequence where the Hawks missed four (?) layups after what should have been two Trae assists cost the Hawks more than two points. Sapped the energy from the past few minutes. – 9:04 PM
Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
Mitchell Robinson is getting worked on while sitting on the floor next to the Knicks bench. – 9:02 PM
Steve Popper @StevePopper
Mitchell Robinson with his fourth foul and limps off – caught his left leg as he fouled and now being tended to on the bench by trainers. – 9:01 PM
Steve Popper @StevePopper
With 8:08 left in the third Randle rebounds a Barrett miss and scores his first points of the night. – 8:55 PM

Another John Collins to Clint Capela assist!

Randle has turned down numerous drives when he spots Capela coming into the picture. – 8:52 PM
Sarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
Trae Young is just on fire right now.
Ended the second quarter with 8 straight points, opens the third with a 3-pointer, then two quick assists to Clint Capela to put the Hawks back in front of the Knicks, 57-51. – 8:49 PM
Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
7-0 run for the Hawks to start the third quarter. A 3 from Trae and 2 assists to Capela.
Trae is in total control tonight – 8:49 PM
Steve Popper @StevePopper
Trae takes over again out of the intermission – a three, then a pair of lobs to Capela for dunks. Knicks down 57-51, a 7-0 run in just 86 seconds. – 8:49 PM
Atlanta Hawks PR @HawksPR
Lou Williams is playing in his 1083rd career game tonight, tying Dell Curry and Antawn Jamison for 85th place in NBA history. – 8:47 PM
Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
Solomon Hill starting the third quarter with Bogdanovic out for the rest of the game – 8:47 PM
Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
Bogdan Bogdanovic (right ankle sprain) will not return. – 8:44 PM
Steve Popper @StevePopper
Maybe Kemba’s best assist this season would have been to tell Randle to take a rest game tonight – the Hawks don’t seem to be his ideal opponent. 0-for-5, 0 points, 2 assists, 2 rebounds in the first half. – 8:39 PM
Steve Popper @StevePopper
Bogdanovic will not return after spraining his right ankle. That’s no Bogey or Reddish for Atlanta i the second half. – 8:38 PM
Adam Zagoria @AdamZagoria
After blowing out the Knicks last night the Suns led the Nets by as many as 20 in the 2nd Q before some good Brooklyn D helped close the gap to 56-46 at half – 8:38 PM

Bogdan Bogdanovic (right ankle sprain) has been ruled out for the rest of the game – 8:38 PM

Clint Capela pulled down 14 rebounds in tonight’s first half. It’s the first time this season Capela has recorded 14-or-more rebounds in a first half and only the ninth time in his career. – 8:36 PM
Tommy Beer @TommyBeer
NY up 1 on ATL at the half 51-50
Knicks bench has outscored ATL by 14 points.
Combo of Obi, IQ, Grimes, and Sims have scored 24 points on 10-of-14 shooting (71.4%)
11 points in just 9 minutes for Obi Toppin, who was electric in that first half pic.twitter.com/MtJAeydIIO8:35 PM
Sarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
Hawks were fading and got down 10 after losing Cam Reddish and Bogdan Bogdanovic to injury, but Trae Young fought hard to keep them in it.
Knicks are up just one, 51-50, at halftime.
Young leads all scorers with 22 points (7-11 FG), w/ 3 assists. – 8:33 PM
Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
Hawks down 51-50 to the Knicks at the end of the first half.

What a fun first half. Knicks lead the Hawks 51-50.
• Barrett 9 & 3
• Burks 8-4-2
• Randle 0 pts, 0-5 FGs
• Young 22 pts
• Capela 4 & 14 – 8:32 PM
Steve Popper @StevePopper
Trae has 22 points at halftime, but knicks up 51-50. Even with Burks pushed to the starting lineup it’s the bench that carries them again – building a 10-point lead before starters came back. – 8:32 PM
Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
I think Trae Young likes playing the Knicks – 8:31 PM
Stefan Bondy @SBondyNYDN
Man. Knicks were up by 10. Thibs subbed out Obi for Julius Randle and the lead disappeared in two minutes. – 8:30 PM
Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
The Hawks still have a villain. – 8:30 PM
Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
Trae Young is willing the Hawks in this game. Now up to 20 on 6 of 10 shooting. – 8:30 PM
Steve Popper @StevePopper
Alec Burks may have missed the part in the scouting report on Trae’s range. – 8:30 PM
Marc Berman @NYPost_Berman
Young Knicks – with Randle watching from bench – built a 10-point lead late in second quarter. It’s uncanny. – 8:27 PM
Stefan Bondy @SBondyNYDN
Oh. My. Quentin Grimes went behind the back and threw a sweet alley-oop to Obi.
Quality stuff from the Knicks youth. – 8:23 PM
Fred Katz @FredKatz
Obi Toppin, holy freakin crap – 8:23 PM
Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
Solomon Hill enters. – 8:20 PM
Sarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
Bogdan Bogdanovic went down on the court after coming down wrong on his right leg/foot.
He’s being helped off back to the locker room and not putting weight on it. – 8:20 PM

Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
Suns, playing the second of a New York back-to-back, have forced 11 turnovers already with 6:51 left to play in the first half. The Nets are struggling to get a good clean offensive set going. Phoenix is getting whatever it wants on the other end. Suns up 51-31. – 8:19 PM
Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
Cam Reddish (left wrist sprain) will not return. – 8:18 PM
Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
Cam Reddish is out for the rest of the game with a left wrist sprain – 8:18 PM

This Young Five has #Knicks fans emotional right now. #NewYorkForever8:12 PM
Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
Cam Reddish went to the locker room. He was on the injury report with left wrist pain and it looked like he just hurt that wrist before the timeout – 8:12 PM
Sarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
Looked like Cam Reddish may have tweaked his left wrist on that last play. He’s walking back to the locker room now. – 8:11 PM
Tommy Beer @TommyBeer
Knicks JV team gonna talking a lot of sh*t in class on Monday!! – 8:11 PM
Fred Katz @FredKatz
Wanna know how much confidence the Knicks have in throwing lobs to Jericho Sims? RJ Barrett knew he was near the hoop and just tossed the ball around the rim without even looking, clearly figuring “Whatever, Jericho will get it.” – 8:08 PM
Sarah K. Spencer @sarah_k_spence
End of the first quarter: Knicks 28, Hawks 27
Trae Young: 9 pts, 3 ast, 2 reb

Young: 9/2/3
Collins/Capela: 4 each
Randle: 0/4 FG – 8:04 PM
Stefan Bondy @SBondyNYDN
A good sign: Knicks won the first quarter even though Julius Randle was scoreless. – 8:04 PM
Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
I am exaggerating, but I don’t think John Collins has missed a post up jumper this season – 8:02 PM
Fred Katz @FredKatz
Jericho Sims is doing some really good stuff. Even on that PnR with Burks just now, he rolled hard and to the right spot, enough to open up the driving lane for a Burks layup. Also, he’s jumped 8+ feet like 7 times already. – 7:59 PM
Steve Popper @StevePopper
Jericho Sims is very active. – 7:54 PM

7:33 in and this lineup held its own – tied 19-19 with the Hawks. They haven’t slowed Trae, but who would? – 7:50 PM
Fred Katz @FredKatz
For all the talk of “Will Alec Burks or Immanuel Quickley by the Knicks point guard tonight?!” the real answer is Julius Randle. – 7:50 PM
Atlanta Hawks PR @HawksPR
With his first three-pointer tonight, Trae Young has 549 in his career, and has tied Steve Smith for fifth place in Hawks history … The top four are Mookie Blaylock (1,050), Joe Johnson (908), Kyle Korver (818) and Jason Terry (648). – 7:46 PM
Steve Popper @StevePopper
The Hawks have very intricate handshakes during player introductions. – 7:38 PM

Usual Hawks starters for tonight:
Trae Young
Bogdan Bogdanovic
Kevin Huerter
John Collins

▪Irving, Harris & Claxton are out. – 6:59 PM
