Hawks Injury Report:Devin Harris (left foot), Anthony Morrow (hip strain), and Johan Petro (illness) did not travel with the team to Detroit. Al Horford (hip contusion) did not participate in practice yesterday, but did travel with the team and is expected to be in the rotation.
Hawks Player(s) to watch: Josh Smith had the most "Josh Smith" game of the season the last time he matched up with the Pistons. He scored 14 early first quarter points and made 13 of his first 18 shots. However, as the game progressed, Josh Smith's shot selection got worst as he missed all 7 of his field goal attempts in the 4th quarter and both overtime periods. Which Josh Smith do we see tonight?
Pistons Player(s) to watch: The last time these two teams matched each other, the tiny and quick Will Bynum exploded for 31 points (26 in the 2nd half). He was the biggest reason for the Pistons' comeback and how they made the Hawks play two extra quarters. The Hawks will need to make sure to limit the amount of good looks he gets, because as they say, "fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me".
