Hawks Starting to Get it Together

Atlanta Hawks Paul Millsap

The Atlanta Hawks have failed to recapture the success of last season’s 60-win squad and have been riding a nonstop teeter-totter so far in the 2015-16 campaign. The Hawks have performed better heading into the Christmas break, however, claiming four in a row after winning just seven of their previous 18 games.

Shark Bites
  • The Pistons are 5-0-1 ATS in their last six games.
  • The Hawks are 1-7 ATS in their last eight games vs the Central Division.
  • The OVER is 5-1 in the Pistons' last six games.

Next up for Atlanta is a home tilt against the beast that is Andre Drummond and the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night. Detroit, winners of three in a row, has been turned around under the highly-respected Stan Vay Gundy this year. A big reason for the Pistons’ success is their dominance on the glass. The Pistons lead the league in offensive rebounding (13.6 boards per game) led by Drummond’s Association-leading 16.4. Detroit is 15-3 when outrebounding their opponents this year.

Atlanta became known for its high-flying brand of basketball last season and Hawks fans have been treated to the same up-tempo hoops as of late. The Hawks are shooting 51.4 percent from the field while averaging 111.3 points per game during the aforementioned winning streak.
