Atlanta havent been great on the road in terms of getting the win but they are doing well to cover the spread. Detroit are 1-4 ATS against Atlanta in their last 5 meetings and I dont think they will win by double figures the way they are currently playing. If Atlanta didnt have the worst defence in terms of points given up, they could be level with Detroit and be looking to make the playoffs. The defensive game has been the big difference in the success of these two this season. Although Detroit are clearly the better team they are actually averaging less points than Hawks this season as well as having a lower field goal, 3-pt and free throw percentage.

The Hawks definitely need to stop Griffin if they are to have any chance of winning the game against the Pistons. He has had absolutely no problem retooling his game and can handle the ball really well as well as shoot the 3 at a really good percentage of 36.5% off 7 attempts a game, which makes him a huge threat. He is averaging a career-high 26.3 points per game, along with 8.1 rebounds and 5.4 assists.

They currently are 3rd in the Central Division. They have a point differential of -9.6 as they average 109.0 points per game while giving up 118.6 per contest. The Hawks have a record of 8-23.

Before that run they were 13-7 on the season and dominated the month of November with wins over Toronto, Houston and Golden State. Not much has changed with Detroits style of play as they are still averaging a similar amount of points per game as well as points given up. Detroit have had a tough few weeks winning just 2 of their last 10 games in the run up to Christmas. Pistons are still in a great position to reach the playoffs for the first time in 3 seasons, they just need to get past this hangover and return to winning ways.
