Detroit Pistons vs Atlanta Hawks

Detroit Pistons vs Atlanta Hawks

When: 8 p.m.

Where: Philips Arena, Atlanta

The Line: Atlanta Hawks -6.5 — Over/Under: 197.5

The Atlanta Hawks led the Eastern Conference with a franchise-record 60 wins last season but were swept by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference finals and are being overlooked as a possible contender in the East this season. The Hawks will set about proving the doubters wrong when they host the Detroit Pistons in the 2015-16 opener on Tuesday. Atlanta was considered the underdog in the 2014-15 postseason to LeBron James and the Cavaliers despite its win total and goes into the 2015-16 campaign in the same position

ABOUT THE PISTONS (2014-15: 32-50):

The Hawks will be eager to kick off the new season with a win after finishing with an impressive 60-22 record last season. Jeff Teague led from the front with averages of 15.9 points and 7.0 assists last season but it was a complete team performance as Al Horford averaged 15.2 points, Paul Millsap averaged 16.7 points while Kyle Korver provided the cherry on top by shooting 49.2 percent from the field from beyond the arc for the season. Injuries hampered the Hawks’ hopes of playing for a championship, but they’re all fully healthy to start the season and will remain unchanged from last season except for the trade of DeMarre Carrol.
Van Gundy was given control over personnel when he took the job and has spent the last year remaking the roster. Detroit lost veteran forward Greg Monroe in free agency but is building around Drummond, Jackson and Johnson while bringing veterans Anthony Tolliver and Jodie Meeks off the bench. “You never want to read too much – good or bad – into the preseason, but I hope depth will be a big thing,” Van Gundy told reporters. “I go into it thinking that it will. I’ve got confidence virtually in everybody on our roster being able to go in and play.”

ABOUT THE HAWKS (2014-15: 60-22):

The Hawks will be eager to kick off the new season with a win after finishing with an impressive 60-22 record last season. Jeff Teague led from the front with averages of 15.9 points and 7.0 assists last season but it was a complete team performance as Al Horford averaged 15.2 points, Paul Millsap averaged 16.7 points while Kyle Korver provided the cherry on top by shooting 49.2 percent from the field from beyond the arc for the season. Injuries hampered the Hawks’ hopes of playing for a championship, but they’re all fully healthy to start the season and will remain unchanged from last season except for the trade of DeMarre Carrol.

The key to Atlanta’s offense last season was its ability to spread the floor with the 3-point shot, keyed by Kyle Korver’s 49.2 percent from beyond the arc in the regular season. Korver dipped to 35.5 percent in the playoffs and underwent surgeries to his elbow and ankle during the offseason. “I feel like I still have a little ways to go physically,” Korver, who knocked down 8-of-23 from 3-point range in the preseason, told the team’s official website. “Everything is not quite connected yet in my shooting. Shooting is all about rhythm and confidence, and sometimes those are the last things that get there.

In ATS trends, the Pistons are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games against the Eastern Conference and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 Tuesday games, while the Hawks are 1-4 ATS in their last five home games and 1-5 ATS in their last six against the NBA Central.
