OUR PREDICTION: Both teams are in a bit of a funk and with Rose out, it's hard to predict which Knicks squad will show up today in Atlanta. But with the Hawks struggling defensively over their last few games, the over appears to be a solid bet today. The over has cashed in nine of the last 12 meetings between these two teams and in 20 of the last 28 meetings in Atlanta. The over is also 6-2 in the Hawks' last eight games and is 10-4 in the Knicks' last 14 games coming off a win.
