Detroit absolutely lit up Atlanta on Thursday night in Georgia. The Pistons scored seventy-four points in the first half without a field goal from Blake Griffin; they hit a season-high on three-pointers midway through the fourth quarter; and they finished with a 124–109 win.
I’ve been impressed with Alex Len early on because of his seemingly newfound ability to hit the mid-range and even three-point jump shot but he didn’t play much at all in this game because Andre Drummond was having his way in the paint. Miles Plumlee played a season-high seventeen minutes in the loss.
Now the Hawks embark on what is going to prove an extremely difficult West Coast road trip against the Lakers, Warriors, Nuggets and Pacers, one game every other day.
Atlanta has lost three in a row and has given up an average of 116 points in those three losses to the Hornets, Knicks and Pistons.
But Len should play effectively in this game and the Lakers’ offense isn’t exactly the most lethal in the league, especially if LeBron James isn’t going full-boot, which he likely won’t be against a former Eastern Conference nemesis.
It sort of feels like one of these first two games against the Lakers and Warriors might be the one Atlanta wins on the trip. I don’t think it’s got much of a chance at all against Denver or Indy later in the week.
Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers are in Sacramento on Saturday night before coming back home for this one on Sunday, a busy weekend.
They’ve won three out of their last four, going into that Kings game. They beat Dallas by one, Portland by four and Minnesota by four with a double-digit home loss to the Raptors in between.
Lonzo Ball started the last game against Minnesota but he tweaked his ankle in the latest lower body injury he’s suffered. He’s questionable for Saturday but it doesn’t sound like he’s playing.
That means it will be Rajon Rondo in the starting five with Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma and James, all three of whom went for 20+ against Minnesota.
Tyson Chandler is also a Laker now. He’s been in the league even longer than James and was selected second overall, after Kwame Brown, by the Clippers in the 2001 Draft, out of high school.
He’s old but he’s a nice compliment and backup to JaVale McGee, who’s been doing work in the first spot where it feels like his team is really depending on him.

Tough matchup for Trae Young going up against Rondo. I like the Lakers to make this a 15-20 point win.
