The Detroit Pistons travel to Atlanta to take on the Hawks opening night on Tuesday.
The Hawks come in off a season that saw them win the Eastern Conference in the regular season, but get swept in the Conference Finals by the Cavaliers.
Detroit comes in off another season of missing the playoff, but with Stan Van Gundy has rebuilt the Pistons into potential contenders as he enters his 2nd season calling the shots.
The Pistons knew they had some moves to make in order to get their team back into playoff contention in the NBA Eastern Conference. Head coach Stan Van Gundy has done just that and with his recruiting help, the Pistons have the tools to do some damage this season.
It starts with F Andre Drummond. Last season, the tall forward averaged a double-double with 13.8 points per game and 13.5 rebounds. The Pistons have built a foundation around him to help take some pressure off him.
Along side Drummond, he’ll see Reggie Jackson and newly acquired Ersan Ilyasova and Marcus Morris in the front court.
Detroit also brought in some veteran leadership with the signings of Anthony Tolliver and Jodie Meeks. The duo will both come off the bench and offer the Pistons a lot of depth.
The key loss for Detroit in the off-season was C Greg Monroe. The center led the Pistons in just about every category and at times put the team on his back. With the new signings along side the returners, Detroit hopes to pick up the production lost.
The Hawks were absolutely dominant in the NBA regular season last year. Marking a franchise record of 60 wins, the Atlanta Hawks secured the overall number 1 seed in the Eastern Conference and secured home court advantage throughout the playoffs.
Making it to the conference finals, the Hawks met with the Cleveland Cavaliers and were essentially given no chance at beating them.
Those doubters knew what they were talking about as the Hawks were swept in 4 games by Cleveland.
Now, Atlanta starts their trek for self redemption and look to avenge their poor end to the 2014-2015 season.
Atlanta will feature one of the biggest front courts in all of the NBA. While they loss star defender DeMarre Carroll to free agency, they brought in Tiago Splitter from San Antonio and added him to Paul Millsap and Al Horford’s already big line.
Expect Kyle Korver to play another giant part in the Hawks offensive game here in 2015. Korver shot 49.2 percent from the 3 point arc last season.
