The Pistons are looking for their first win and are playing a team that hasn’t loss in the Atlanta Hawks. They are also playing on the road, and they are playing on the road. Recipe for disaster? Maybe not. If Ben Wallace can do a reasonable job at containing Al Horford, the Hawks don’t have anyone that can punish you in the post. They are quick and athletic, however, so the Pistons will have to make tonight the night they learn how to get back in transition.
On offense, the Pistons will need to utilize Ben Gordon as he will be matched up against inferior defenders such as Mike Bibby, Jeff Teague and Jamal Crawford.
