Predicted bane of the Hawks existence: Will Bynum, unless the GT trifecta of defeat happens.

Game Preview:

The Pistons traditionally play awful on Sunday afternoons. They probably are without three of their best players. Charlie V. cannot even kind of guard Josh Smith. Joe Johnson should not struggle. Shoot Marvin has no reason to be scared. Nothing short of an easy win is expected. Just a win is perfectly acceptable.

Keys to the game:

  1. Limit points in the paint. In particular slams by Will Bynum and Jason Maxiell
    Teamish offense.

Go Hawks!
