The New York Knicks and Atlanta Hawks enter Game 4, with Atlanta looking to take a 3-1 lead in the series while New York looks to return to Madison Square Garden tied 2-2. Trae Young shined in Atlanta’s Game 3 victory and will look to follow that up in Game 4.

Knicks vs. Hawks, 1:00 p.m. ET, ABC

Pick ATS: Hawks -4.5 (-109)

The Hawks are favored in this game and while they may not shoot nearly 60 percent from downtown again, the Knicks are having trouble defending Atlanta’s offense on the perimeter. Young is a threat from anywhere on the floor and the Hawks finally got production from their bench with Danilo Gallinari and Kevin Huerter hitting double figures.

Player Prop: Trae Young over 1.5 3-pointers (-186)

The value might not be great, but Young is going to be hoisting from deep often. He took seven attempts in Game 2 and six in Game 3. Expect the same amount of volume from the perimeter for Young and the Hawks in general. The way he shoots, he’s a good bet to hit at least a couple triples.
