The New York Knicks defeated the Atlanta Hawks 101-92 in Game 2 of their first-round playoff series, tying the series at 1-1. Julius Randle led the way for the Knicks with 15 points and 12 rebounds, while Derrick Rose provided a spark off the bench with 26 points. Trae Young had 30 points and 7 assists for the Hawks, but it was not enough to overcome the Knicks’ strong defense and balanced scoring attack.

The Hawks made a run in the third quarter and cut the lead to 4 points, but the Knicks responded with a 12-0 run and never looked back.

The win was crucial for the Knicks, who lost Game 1 at home and needed to even the series before heading to Atlanta for Games 3 and 4. The series now becomes a best-of-five, with the next game being a crucial one for both teams. The Knicks will look to build on their strong performance and take the lead in the series, while the Hawks will try to regain their home-court advantage and take control of the series.
