Atlanta missed six shots and committed two turnovers during that stretch before Schroder’s layup with 9:53 left. The Hawks outscored the Knicks 7-2 to cut the margin to 84-82 with 9:04 to go.
Injured guard Isaiah Thomas, out all season with a torn labrum in his right hip, participated in 3-on-3 drills on Monday.
Lue did not provide an update on Thomas’ expected timeline. The Cavs say Thomas will be playing in games by the end of the month, barring any setbacks.
“The biggest thing is just to make sure he’s 100 percent,” Lue said. “We’re not trying to rush him back, and that’s the biggest key, so he doesn’t have any setbacks.”
Lue didn’t commit to a specific game Thomas could make his debut in.
Here we look at some of the best headlines from Sunday’s slate.
Terrell tries to give some perspective: After the Chiefs’ defense fell apart in a 38-31 loss to the Jets, safety Steven Terrell tried to put things in perspective. “As bad as it seems right now, it could always be worse,” Terrell said. Maybe Terrell thought his words would comfort Chiefs fans, but they are likely to do the opposite. It could be worse, and after seeing the Chiefs lose six of their last seven, Kansas City fans probably will expect worse.
Ravens running back Alex Collins broke out in a big way, rushing for 120 yards and a touchdown and hauling in two passes for 46 yards. In all honesty, Collins should have had three TDs on the night if it wasn’t for Javorius Allen vulturing two of them. Collins used his speed against a banged up Steelers defense, which look nothing like the fourth-best unit in the league.
