Knicks ride Harrington, Duhon to road win over Hawks

ATLANTA (NBA.com exclusive) -- Things were going badly Friday for the Atlanta Hawks, and when Josh Smith was ejected in the second quarter they got worse.

But the Knicks' fortunes have changed for the better.

They followed Tuesday's impressive 126-99 home win over the Suns with perhaps an equally large 114-107 win (sandwiched around Wednesday's loss at Orlando).

The Knicks won, after all, in Philips Arena, where the Hawks' only previous loss was to the Magic, and on Friday they were significantly under-manned.

Who'da thunk it, especially after the Hawks jumped out to an 11-0 lead?

Probably anybody who would have predicted that would've predicted Al Harrington scoring 25 of his 27 points in the first half, or that point guard Chris Duhon would score 25 points with 10 assists and no turnovers.

"I'm just reacting, not thinking any more," said Duhon, who added four rebounds. "Whatever happens, happens. Al got hot and carried us until our offense got going."

That would be understatement, and again nearly impossible to predict.

Knicks forward Danilo Gallinari, who has made more 3-pointers than any player in the NBA (56 of 127) didn't play because of a strained right forearm.

So instead of coming off the bench, Harrington started in his spot, and he and Duhon each hit 3 of 4 3-pointers in the first quarter while scoring 17 points.

"We were a little rattled, slow to get started," D'Antoni said. "Give it to Al, who really had a big first quarter to give us some confidence, and I thought Chris Duhon played his best game all season."

For good measure, Larry Hughes -- moved by D'Antoni to the bench in favor of Jared Jeffries as the coach sought more athleticism on the court to counter Josh Smith -- hit his only shot in the period, a 3-pointer, and the Knicks made 14 of their final 18 shots in the first quarter for a 35-34 lead.

"We're starting to play a little bit better," said Knicks forward David Lee, who scored 18 points with 17 rebounds. "When Josh Smith got thrown out of the game, it was big for us because he changes the dynamic."

Affirmative.

Smith pulled Atlanta to within 48-42 on a short shot with 6:21 left, but he was hacked off.

He and Harrington, a former teammate, were going back and forth pretty good, and Smith appeared to think he was fouled and let Delaney know it. Delaney hit him with a technical foul, and Smith started down court, still grousing as no teammate intervened to calm him.

Eventually, Smith pointed to his own eyes with two fingers. The ref saw that, and ran the Hawks' power forward.

With the league's leading shot-blocker gone, the Knicks attacked the paint to score eight of their final 16 points in the second quarter from close range.

The Hawks, meanwhile, were suddenly disjointed on offense, mis-firing on four consecutive 3-pointers, with only a pair of Al Horford free throws in that sequence. By halftime, the Knicks led 64-51.

"I think we got caught up in how they play," said Atlanta guard Jamal Crawford, who scored 12 points but missed all three of his trey tries. "They shoot a lot of 3s, and we thought that was the answer."

Atlanta dominated the third quarter to take an 84-83 lead, but the Knicks made 12 of 17 shots in the final period -- including all eight attempts in the paint. Hughes scored 10 of his 16 in the fourth quarter, while Wilson Chandler had 11 of his 18.

"It's huge because of where we are psychologically," D'Antoni said. "We could have wilted because they are good, and that's where the veterans come in."

This left the Hawks right back where they were before whipping Toronto 146-115 Wednesday -- disjointed, and searching for defense.

Joe Johnson scored 29 points, but missed all five of his 3-pointers and Atlanta made just four of 23 in losing for the fourth time in six games following an 11-2 start. They also fell for the second time in three home games after a 7-0 start in Philips.

In the past two games, Atlanta opponents have shot 54.4 percent (87 of 160), and 51.2 percent from 3-point territory (21 of 41).

It never really mattered that D'Antoni didn't have Gallinari, nor that he chose not to play guard Nate Robinson, who Knicks writers said is in the coach's doghouse. Injured center Eddy Curry (knee) wasn't missed, either.

"Defensively, we were non-existent tonight," said Atlanta coach Mike Woodson. "We suddenly ran out of juice, but it was an uphill climb all game. They're a scary team when they're making shots."

Note: D'Antoni said he thinks Gallinari will be ready for the Knicks' next game, Sunday at New Jersey.
