    ATLANTA — RJ Barrett scored 26 points, Julius Randle added 24 and the New York Knicks beat the Atlanta Hawks, 117-108, on Saturday night (Sunday, Manila time) for their third straight victory.

    The Knicks improved to 22-21, the first time they've been over .500 since Dec. 2. They have won five of six, but began the night in 10th place in the Eastern Conference.

    Trae Young led Atlanta with 29 points, and Danilo Gallinari had 17. The Hawks have dropped five straight and nine of 11 to fall to 17-26. They began the night 12th in the East.

    The Hawks, who knocked off New York in the quarterfinal round of the playoffs last year and advanced to the conference finals, have lost 10 straight at home.

    Lou Williams' jumper pulled Atlanta within four at the 8:35 mark of the fourth and Williams followed over a minute later with a 3 that made it 93-91, but that was as close as the Hawks would get before New York's Evan Fournier drilled a 3 and hit a layup to push the lead to six.
