The Hawks snapped an eight-game losing streak tonight with a 107-98 win at home against the struggling Knicks.

Mike Scott came up huge in filling in for the injured Paul Millsap, who was out with a sore knee. Scott had a career-high 30 points and made 11 of 14 shots, while Jeff Teague returned from an ankle injury to add 28 points.DeMarre Carroll returned from a shoulder injury and had 24 points for the Hawks as well.

Carmelo Anthony, who w as a rumored trade target prior to Thursday's deadline, scored 35 points for New York. Raymond Felton added 16, but no other Knick scored more than 11 points.

The win ended the Hawks' eight-game losing streak which has caused them to plummet from third to eighth in the Eastern Conference - still good enough for the playoffs, but dangerous. The Knicks, with the loss, are 5 1/2 games behind the Hawks for that eighth and final playoff spot.

The Hawks fell behind by as many as 17 points, but rallied to take the lead early in the fourth quarter on a Lou Williams 3-pointer. The Hawks hit 16 of 31 three-pointers to rally and take down the Knicks for their first win in three weeks.

The Hawks are tied with Charlotte and Brooklyn for the 6-7-8 spots in the East, with Detroit and Cleveland behind them and in front of the Knicks.

The Hawks next face the Bulls (29-25, 4th in the East) on Tuesday at Philips Arena.
