The Pistons’ next test comes Monday night in Charlotte against a team that’s beginning to solidify a stingy identity and has been particularly impressive defensively over its last five contests.
|Pos, Player||Ppg||Rpg||Pos, Player||Ppg||Rpg|
|G K. Walker||17.6||3.7||G R. Jackson||19.9||4.3|
|G N. Batum||17.2||6.6||G K C-Pope||12.9||3.2|
|F P. Hairston||3.9||2.1||F Ma. Morris||14.3||6.4|
|F M. Williams||9.9||7.1||F E. Ilyasova||10.4||3.6|
|C C. Zeller||7.4||5.1||C A. Drummond||18.6||16.7
The Pistons have been a pretty inconsistent team all season, but they’re suddenly going for a fifth straight win after last night’s 111-91 win over the Lakers. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope led the scoring with 22 points, Reggie Jackson added 20 while Andre Drummond had a double-double of 18 points and 15 rebounds in just 24 minutes as the Pistons stormed out to a 65-42 lead at halftime and never looked back. The Pistons have really been on a tear offensively during their winning streak, averaging 114 points per game, led by Jackson who is averaging 27 points in his last four outings.
The Hornets have won six of their last eight overall and are coming off an impressive 102-96 upset win at Chicago. Nicolas Batum led the team with 24 points, 11 rebounds and five assists while Cody Zeller and Kemba Walker added 17 points each as the Hornets won without Al Jefferson who will miss another two weeks while nursing a strained calf injury. The Hornets were coming off a 116-99 home loss to the Warriors but showed plenty of resolve to bounce back and earn a tough win on the road, elevating their record to 11-8 on the season and 3-5 on the road.
In ATS trends, the Pistons are 4-0 ATS in their last four games overall and 1-7 ATS in their last eight road games, while the Hornets are 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 games against a team with a winning record and 6-2 ATS in their last eight games when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game.
Head to head, the Pistons are 2-5 ATS in the last seven meetings overall and 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Charlotte

Matchup to Watch
Al Jefferson vs. DeMarcus Cousins: These are two of the best low-post scoring big men in the NBA. What they do is becoming somewhat a lost art.
It has been a wild week for the Atlanta Hawks, and the team returns home on Friday in a shorthanded state. Thabo Sefolosha, who was involved in a bizarre incident in New York that netted both himself and Pero Antic in jail, is out for the season following an ankle injury sustained during the course of his wild stay in the Big Apple, and that is just the beginning of the uncertainty surrounding the roster for Friday night.
The Atlanta Hawks may have only had one night off, but it will be a welcome relief for the team to return to basketball, and get away from the recent events that have had them in the news off the court.

The Hawks will look to put that to the back of their mind with a victory over Charlotte tonight though, particularly seen as the banner for winning the Southeast division will be raised in Philips Arena before the game.
Obviously, Sefolosha’s absence is of the extended variety and the Hawks must get used to playing without their backup small forward. Somewhat fortunately, Atlanta has been able to play without Sefolosha in the lineup at times due to a long-term calf injury, and we should see a lot of Kent Bazemore and potentially an uptick from Shelvin Mack, John Jenkins and/or Austin Daye.
In addition, Paul Millsap has missed the past two games with a shoulder ailment, and his status is very much up in the air for this game. On one hand, there is no reason to rush Millsap along in his attempt to recover, but in the same breath, the Hawks would certainly love to see their All-Star power forward on the floor in a productive way before the start of the playoffs.
Throw in the continued uncertainty of Pero Antic, who missed Wednesday’s game for obvious reasons, and the Atlanta Hawks have a bit of a pickle with regard to the roster on the whole. Still, this is a “meaningless” game in the standings, and while the Hornets are still alive in the race for the final playoff spots in the East, Charlotte is on the very fringe of contention.
The Atlanta Hawks have only two additional home games in the regular season, and prior to this game, the team will raise the banner associated with the 2014-2015 Southeast Division title. That is worth celebrating, and once the banner is lifted, the focus can shift to the future from a personnel standpoint.

ABOUT THE HORNETS (33-45):
Charlotte is slipping in part due to injuries, and Al Jefferson (knee), Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (ankle) and Cody Zeller (shoulder) are all questionable for the rest of the season. Clifford plans to give the younger players long looks over the final handful of games and played rookies P.J. Hairston and Noah Vonleh a combined 48 minutes in Wednesday’s loss to the Raptors. “Games like (Wednesday) for the rookies, for instance, those are great teaching tapes,” Clifford told reporters. “There’s a lot there that they can take with them over the summer that they can watch, and that sometimes helps even more.”
ABOUT THE HAWKS (59-19):
Atlanta is gearing up for the playoffs with wins in six of its last eight games and took a break from pounding opponents with a 114-111 road win over Brooklyn on Wednesday. The Hawks had won their two previous games by a combined 59 points and are staring down the franchise’s first 60-win season. Atlanta’s big lead in the East has given the team the opportunity to rest forward Paul Millsap, who sat the last two games with a shoulder injury, while sprinkling in plenty of time off for the rest of the regulars.
