Knicks’ victory over Atlanta a cathartic W in more ways than one

Of the sporadic wins the Knicks have managed to pick up in recent weeks (they haven’t had a streak of any kind since losing two straight on Nov. 10 and 12) none have felt particularly good.

A win by two points counts in the standings just as much as a win by 30. But whether it was a required double-digit comeback against a middling opponent (Indiana), a tight contest against an inferior one (Houston), or a blown double-digit lead that had to be salvaged (Lakers), those victories (all at home, btw) never felt like the kind New York could build off of.
