The Knicks continued their winning ways on Wednesday night in Atlanta.  In the second night of a back-to-back, Carmelo Anthony picked up where he left off after his 50-point explosion in Miami the night before.  The All-Star forward scored 40 points on 17-of-27 shooting -- Melo has now scored a whopping 90 points in his last two outings. The Orange and Blue past the playoff-bound Hawks, 95-82, as they ran their unbeaten streak to 10 games.  

As they moved into sole possession of 2nd place in the Eastern Conference, here are the five biggest takeaways from New York’s impressive showing in the ATL.
