The Atlanta Hawks and the Detroit Pistons face off on Saturday Night in Phillips Arena in preseason NBA action.
The Atlanta Hawks are 2-2 so far this preseason and with 10 days before the season officially starts they have played just one home game. The Hawks are coming off of a one-point loss at Chicago on Thursday in a defensive game where they played right into the Bulls hands. Only Paul Millsap didn’t play on Thursday as 14 Hawks saw action. Mike Scott led all Atlanta scorers with 15 points in 22 minutes and Dennis Schroder added 11 points. John Jenkins was the leading bench scorer with 10 points and Pero Antic had eight points. Elton Brand and Al Horford were the hawks leading rebounders with six each. While it was just preseason, the Hawks led the entire first three quarters of the game before being outscored by 20 in the fourth quarter to lose by a single point.

The Detroit Pistons are playing their second game in as many nights as they were bounced by 12 points on Friday in Orlando. Greg Monroe had a big game on Friday scoring 24 points and grabbing 10 rebounds in 32 minutes. D.J. Augustin continued his strong play for the preseason scoring 21 points and grabbing six rebounds in 24 minutes. Andre Drummond had 11 points and Brandon Jennings had 10 points in the losing effort. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope didn’t dress while Spencer Dinwiddie and Tony Mitchell were among those that didn’t play.
The under is 5-1 in Atlanta’s last six games and 7-0 in their last seven home games. Detroit is 1-6 against the spread playing on no rest and he over is 14-4 when playing on no rest.
I don't love this number but with the Pistons playing on back to back nights I will take the Hawks.
