The Hawks are done but they didn’t get the roster makeover some were expecting at the trade deadline. To me that means there is no reason to expect any sort of jump in their performance, but there can be a continuity advantage in some matchups I guess.
Detroit did make the big move getting Blake Griffin. It was smooth sailing until it wasn’t. They have lost two in a row including against Atlanta on Sunday on the road.
This is being written in advance of the Hawks game on Tuesday night at Milwaukee making this contest a road to road back to back. They are 0-3 SU in that situation this season, 1-1-1 ATS.
When they beat the Piston a few days ago Dwayne Dedmon was full value inside with 20 points and 13 rebounds. He made the Pistons respect the Hawks inside.
On the perimeter Denis Schroeder was his usual slipper self with 23 points all from inside the arc and at the free throw line.
In addition to those two four other players scored 10 or more led by Ersan Ilyasova. The stretch four was thought to be moved to teams seeking more shooting but is stuck in Atlanta and making the most of it.
Tyler Dorsey seems to be finally breaking through as a rookie. He has scored 10 or more in four straight games.
Even though they have lost a couple of games the Pistons have been playing better lately. Still they are under .500 and at the moment sit a few games behind the last playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Losing at Atlanta stung but if they lose to the Hawks again at home they might just be their season.
Since joining the Pistons Blake Griffin is averaging only 21 points and 7 rebounds. Both of those numbers are slightly below what he was averaging with the Clippers and they need to lean on him more if they are going to make the playoffs. He has become a really good passer and they need him to dictate the action more.
You never know with these things but the addition has done nothing to the production of Andre Drummond. He is not a polished scorer but he is one of the most consistent players in the game. He has posted 11 straight double-doubles and upped his free throw shooting all the way to 62%.

Free Atlanta Hawks vs. Detroit Pistons NBA Prediction:
The Pistons get to be the better rested team in this one and that may show. So will some ire from the last game.
If they play well the Hawks should not be able to match the power and production of the Pistons inside. Dedmon is not that good.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Pistons -9
I usually look for small numbers and big advantages but in this case I am going with the larger home chalk. Detroit will get a big one.
