Detroit Pistons vs Atlanta Hawks game thread

New, comments

The Hawks are (finally) home. Let's do this together.

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

It has been a long time since the Atlanta Hawks took the floor in Philips Arena, but that absence comes to an end on Friday evening. The Detroit Pistons are in town for amounts to a (very) quick, one-game "homestand" for the Hawks and, if you have been watching Atlanta lately, it is pretty clear that the team could use a victory in this particular contest. Unfortunately, the Hawks will be without Paul Millsap and that makes the climb much steeper.

Stay tuned throughout the evening for all the latest and, as always, let's keep the discussion civil in the comments.

Probable Starters

Hawks

PG - Dennis Schröder

SG - Kyle Korver

SF - Kent Bazemore

PF - Thabo Sefolosha

C - Dwight Howard

Pistons

Injury Report:

Atlanta - Mike Scott (left knee) is probable; Paul Millsap (left hip) and Tiago Splitter (calf) are out.
