Just two days after losing on the road to the Atlanta Hawks, the Detroit Pistons get a chance for revenge on home court this evening. The Pistons were plagued by poor shooting from their two important offseason additions, Josh Smith and Brandon Jennings, in the 93-85 loss.
Here is a look at all the important information for tonight’s game.

If the Pistons are to beat the Hawks they will need Smith and Jennings to play a more efficient brand of basketball. That could be as simple as knocking down a few more shots but if the shots aren’t falling, they will need to adjust. That means moving the ball to find the best possible shot on each possession. The Pistons haven’t shown they can do that with regularity, which means they may be in for another feast or famine night.
Prediction: Hawks 101, Pistons 99
