On Sunday, there are a handful of games on the basketball television schedule that we have circled that should be good ones. Check out our NBA picks for Sunday!

NBA Matchup: New York Knicks @ Atlanta Hawks
Date: Sunday, April 22nd, 1:00 ET
Location: Phillips Arena, Atlanta, GA
NBA Betting Odds: Atlanta -3.5
NBA TV Schedule: ABC

The Hawks have more to play for in this one than the Knicks do in our eyes, and we think that it is going to show. New York now knows that it is in the playoffs, and it really doesn’t make all that much of a difference if it is going to be the No. 7 or No. 8 seed. The Hawks are still fighting for home court advantage in the first round of the playoffs, and to be quite honest, we think that they are the better team and the better team by quite a healthy margin. Amare Stoudemire is back in the fold, and that really seems to be hurting the Knicks, knowing that he and Carmelo Anthony both just had a miserable game against the lowly Cleveland Cavaliers. It’s going to be a heck of a lot harder in Atlanta.

NBA Pick: Atlanta Hawks -3.5

NBA Matchup: Oklahoma City Thunder @ Los Angeles Lakers
Date: Sunday, April 22nd, 3:30 ET
Location: Staples Center, Los Angeles, CA
NBA Betting Odds: Oklahoma City -1
NBA TV Schedule: ABC

The Lakers and the Thunder have to face the facts that they are probably going to be playing each other in the second round of the playoffs, whether it be in the roles of a No. 1 and No. 4 seed or a No. 2 and No. 3 seed. Oklahoma City still has a massive chip on its shoulder, trying to get to the top seed, not just in the West, but for the whole league as well. There is just something about these Lakers that really concern us, and though they have one of the best home records in the league, we don’t think that they are going to get the job done against the Thunder.

NBA Pick: Oklahoma City -1
