The two national TV games for Wednesday, Dec. 7 are the Hawks vs Knicks and Celtics vs Suns. Both will air on ESPN. Atlanta and New York tip things off at 7:30 p.m. ET. Boston and Phoenix will close the doubleheader at 10 p.m. ET. 

The Hawks are currently trying to navigate trade rumors and in-team drama affecting morale. Atlanta's gone 2-4 over its last six, including a 121-114 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder in its last time out. New York is also 2-4 in its six previous games, but won 92-81 over the Cleveland Cavaliers in its most recent game.

The East-leading Celtics, meanwhile, will look to stay hot against the Suns. Phoenix is expected to get a huge reinforcement back in this one, as Chris Paul returns to the lineup following a one-month absence.
