The 13-26 #Pistons are hosting the 23-13 Atlanta Hawks Friday night at The Palace of Auburn Hills. The Hawks have won the past three against Detroit and nine of the last 12. They’ve also taken the last two at The Palace.
- The good: The Pistons are winners of 7 of their last 10 at home.
- The bad: Brandon Knight’s no-show against the Lakers.
- Who to watch: Josh Smith, who has asked for a trade out of Atlanta. So start talking about who to give up to get Smith in a Pistons uniform.
- The unknown: Atlanta’s leading scorer Joe Johnson has missed four straight games and six of seven with a knee injury, but his status is unknown against the Pistons.
Tip off is at 7:30 pm and will be broadcast on Fox Sports Plus. If you can’t catch the game on TV, catch it on the radio over at 97.1 The Ticket.
