The Atlanta Hawks and Detroit Pistons meet Thursday in NBA action at the Little Caesars Arena.
The Atlanta Hawks are coming off a 29-win season and hope to take that next step under a young core that looks promising up to this point. A combination of Trae Young, John Collins, Alex Len, De'Andre Hunter and Cam Reddish makes you believe the Hawks are heading in the right direction and could even surprise some folks as early as this season. The additions of Jabari Parker and Evan Turner also give the Hawks a splash of experience and depth in hopes of balancing things out. The Hawks may be a year or two away from doing anything significant, but this will be a fun team to watch and is probably a team you’ll be able to get some good value on due to the lowered expectations most have. The Atlanta Hawks have lost seven of their last nine road games.
The Detroit Pistons look for another win after beating the Indiana Pacers in their season opener yesterday. The Detroit Pistons are averaging 119 points on 52.6 percent shooting and allowing 110 points on 46.1 percent shooting. Andre Drummond is averaging 32 points and 23 rebounds while Luke Kennard is averaging 30 points and two assists. Derrick Rose is the third double-digit scorer and Tony Snell is dishing two assists. The Detroit Pistons are shooting 45.8 percent from beyond the arc and 78.8 percent from the free throw line. The Detroit Pistons are allowing 38.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45 rebounds per game. The Detroit Pistons have won eight of their last 10 home games.
The Hawks are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 road games, 8-3 ATS in their last 11 vs. Eastern Conference and 17-7 ATS in their last 24 games overall. The Pistons are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 0 days rest, 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Hawks are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Detroit and 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The under is 30-12-1 in Pistons last 43 games playing on 0 days rest. The over is 7-3 in Hawks last 10 overall.
The Atlanta Hawks are a talented group that could surprise some people this season, but they're also very young and weren't good defensively last season, which allowed a lot of games to get away from them late. The Detroit Pistons are still without Blake Griffin, but Drummond dominated last night and others showed they're ready to step up. I like that the Pistons have a game out of the way to knock off any potential rust, and they're also a team that finished strong at home last year. The Pistons have also won seven of the last 10 meetings against the Hawks. In a near toss-up, I'll take the Pistons.
