Game Thread: Atlanta Hawks vs. Detroit Pistons

Basketball on a Friday night!

If the Atlanta Hawks play a basketball game without television cameras, does it really exist? Well, yes it does!

The Hawks are in Detroit this evening to finish off the road preseason slate but, without any local coverage, you’ll be wise to keep tabs on the proceedings here. Preseason games do not always provide massive takeaways but DeAndre’ Bembry is expected to return and, with a young team, there is usually something to grasp within the confines of a 48-minute game.

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

SG - Tyler Dorsey

SF - Taurean Prince
