The Atlanta Hawks return to action Wednesday night when they look to continue their home dominance over the Detroit Pistons.
The Atlanta Hawks return to action Wednesday night after enjoying a three-day break to take on the Detroit Pistons at Philips Arena. Atlanta wrapped up a four-game in five day stretch with a 92-75 win over the Chicago Bulls on Saturday. That win improved the Hawks' record to 16-9 and snapped a two-game slide in the process.
Detroit's two game winning streak is a little deceiving since both of their wins came against the Washington Wizards who currently hold the worst record in the NBA. Prior to the wins over Washington, Detroit had lost six straight and are 3-13 on the road this season. Furthermore the Pistons have lost eight straight games at Philips Arena dating back to 2008.
Atlanta hopes that the three-day break will be enough to get guard Devin Harris back in the lineup after missing the last three games with a foot injury. An MRI exam came back negative for Harris and he is listed as day-to-day. Tayshaun Prince sat out practice on Monday after suffering an ankle injury in Saturday's win. He will likely be a game-time decision for the Pistons.
