[VIDEO] The Sports Kings: Hawks Spoil Woody’s Return!

Joe Johnson scored 28 points and Willie Green carried the Hawks in the fourth quarter, leading Atlanta to a 100-90 victory over Mike Woodson and the New York Knicks on Friday night.

Green scored 15 of his 20 points in the final period, including a 3-pointer from the corner that stretched Atlanta’s lead to 94-84.

Woodson, who coached the Hawks from 2004-10, returned to Philips Arena for the first time as the Knicks interim coach. His team wasn’t at full strength, forced to go without injured starters Amare Stoudemire (back) and Jeremy Lin (left knee).

Carmelo Anthony led the Knicks with 36 points and rookie Iman Shumpert matched his career high with 25. Still, the Knicks lost for only the second loss in 10 games under Woodson.
