Monday, December 28th finds two Eastern Conference clubs tipping off as the 2-0 Atlanta Hawks host the 0-2 Detroit Pistons in their first meeting of the 2020-21 season.
The Pistons hold the all-time record between the clubs with 222 wins in 432 meetings. Last season, the clubs played three times with Detroit winning two and Atlanta taking one.
Five Pistons scored in double-figures in a game that went to overtime. Detroit had a chance to win in regulation but failed to get up a shot as the team on the floor lost track of time.
Jerami Grant registered a double-double of 28 points and 10 rebounds to lead the way. Blake Griffin (26), Delon Wright (19), Derrick Rose (13), and Svi Mikhailiuk (12) all scored in double-figures.
Andre Drummond got revenge on his former team delivering a double-double of 23 points and 16 rebounds along with five assists, four steals, and three blocks.
Jahlil Okafor suffered an ankle injury while Sekou Doumbouya was hit in the nose so both left the match and are questionable to play Monday.
Deividas Sirvydis missed the last two games as he navigates the COVID-19 protocols and is still questionable.
With numerous players out the Hawks demonstrated precisely how deep they are as five players scored in double-figures in the win over the Grizzlies.
Trae Young led the way with 36 points and nine rebounds but took 24 shots – more than double any of his teammates.
DeAndre Hunter (15 points. 11 rebounds) and John Thompson (13 points, 10 rebounds) each produced double-doubles. Kevin Huerter (21) and Nathan Knight (14) were the other double-digit contributors.
Atlanta has several players on the injured list. Danilo Gallinari missed the last game with a foot contusion.
Each of Clint Capela (Achilles), Rajon Rondo (COVID-19 protocol), Tony Snell (foot), Kris Dunn (knee), and Onyeka Okongwu (toe) has missed both games to start the season and are all questionable for Monday.
This game marks the home opener for the Hawks who started the year on the road.

Free Detroit Pistons vs. Atlanta Hawks NBA Prediction:
It’s only been two games but the Pistons are looking like a good bet to be one of the bottom three teams in the league to capture the top draft pick.
Even if the Hawks fail to get back all or a portion of the six players who are on the injured list it won’t matter as the Pistons haven’t shown a propensity to play defense.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Pistons +9.5
Meanwhile, the Hawks also haven’t shown much excitement in playing defense but they have so many offensive weapons it hasn’t mattered to this point. Once Kris Dunn returns that will offset some of their issues.
As the Sunday Nets, 76ers, and Bucks matches showed elite teams will lose games against teams they should beat. While the Hawks likely take this game – they’ll need to make sure not to underestimate the Pistons or play down to the competition.
