Preivew:

The Atlanta Hawks will look to bounce back from Wednesday's loss to the Miami Heat when they take on the Detroit Pistons Friday night at the Palace. The Hawks will have a slightly bigger magnifying glass on them Friday night after the news of Josh Smith's trade demand broke on Thursday. Atlanta has played well of late after struggling for most of the month of February. It will be interesting to watch and see if any of the off court distractions affect the team as next week's trade deadline looms.

Update* Joe Johnson is in the starting lineup for tonight's game against Detroit
