[ATLANTA] — The Atlanta Hawks played host to the New York Knicks last night and the hometown crowd got exactly what they paid for in the form of a hard-fought 102 to 98 Hawks victory. The win bumps Atlanta's record up to 16-16 on the season, while the loss drags New York's down to 16-15. Though a win's a win and Hawks fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

An impressive performance from Dwight Howard led all players in the contest and his 16 points, 22 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 blocks and 1 steals in 39 minutes will make many-a-fantasy owner proud. Unfortunately for Howard, what really matters - the result on the scoreboard - still leans in favor of the Hawks. Perhaps continued performances like this one in the near future will get New York back in the win column before too long.

At the helm for the Hawks in the victory was Joakim Noah and while he may not have posted a more attractive statline than Howard, he did help his club walk away with the victory. Noah posted 14 points, 16 rebounds and 3 assists in the win.

Atlanta's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Knicks, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Hawks will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling Hawks will be a date with the Denver Nuggets while the visiting Knicks will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Orlando Magic.
