In Wednesday night NBA action, the Atlanta Hawks will invade Little Caesars Arena to take on the Detroit Pistons. This will be the second of a back-to-back on the road for Atlanta, who made the plays down the stretch during last night's 117-111 victory against New York. The Hawks (36-36) knocked down 15-for-36 from the three-point line and shot 49 percent overall.
All-Star G Trae Young poured in a game-high 45 points on 13-for-25 shooting and dished out eight assists. Bogdan Bogdanovic contributed 32 points in 34 minutes off the bench for the Hawks.
The Detroit Pistons are 13 games below .500 at home and are tied with Orlando for the worst overall record in the Eastern Conference. On Monday, Detroit rallied from a 15-point halftime deficit before faltering down the stretch of a 119-115 home loss versus Portland. The Pistons (19-53) missed 26 of their 35 three-point attempts and turned the ball over 20 times in defeat.
Cade Cunningham and Saddiq Bey led Detroit with 25 points apiece on a combined 16-for-34 shooting. Marvin Bagley III added 15 points and nine rebounds for the Pistons.
