Knicks win finale, Hawks get No. 6 seed in East

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - Carmelo Anthony won the scoring title without playing, and the Atlanta Hawks lost their chance to move up in the East standings.

Chris Copeland scored 33 points on a night that belonged to the benches, and the New York Knicks wrapped up their winningest season in 16 years by beating the Hawks 98-92 on Wednesday.

With Anthony and just about every important player on either side sitting, the Knicks finished 54-28, their most victories since going 57-25 in 1996-97.

New York is the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference and will host the No. 7 Boston Celtics on Saturday.
