Historical stats about the games played between the Hawks and the Pistons with their all-time performance against each other in the NBA Season and Playoffs.

The Atlanta Hawks opened their season firing on all cylinders against a weary Pistons team coming off a hard fought victory a night earlier. Although for the first half Detroit more than kept up with the young Hawks, leading 63-60 going into the break.

In the opening half it was the Trae Young vs. Derrick Rose show. Young scored 26 points from literally all over the court, and Rose scored 15 on 7-of-8 shooting, getting into the lane at will and also making a living with his effortless mid-range game. Andre Drummond’s first half was a good one as well, displaying an improved touch around the rim and his usual quick hands with a few pickpockets of Hawks.

Detroit shot 53% in half number one while Atlanta shot 52%. The frenetic high scoring pace favored the well rested Hawks and you knew Detroit wasn’t likely to keep it up.

Detroit could barely put the ball in the hoop in the second half, as it was all Atlanta all the time. They wore down the Pistons iso-heavy attack, and even when the Pistons moved the ball for perimeter shots, the Hawks were serious with their contests. The Hawks also did a fine job on the glass, not allowing Detroit to get easy put-backs.

Drummond never got anything going in the second half. He part disappeared and part was frozen out by his teammates. Give the Hawks some of the credit — they goaded Detroit into lazy and selfish one-on-one play and rushed jump shots. Detroit spent a ton of energy last night in Indiana and it was evident as the Hawk’s ramped up their defensive intensity.

Reggie Jackson followed up a flat game one with another flat performance. He left the game in the third quarter shortly after coming up lame after a dunk. There’s certainly good basketball in Reggie to come, but right now he’s either overthinking too much or perhaps he’s worried that Rose will take over his starting spot, or even worse yet, be the closer for this team at point guard.

Tim Frazier made a lengthier appearance than he did against Indiana, giving the team a brief lift in the second half by hitting a couple jump shots and pressuring on defense. But ultimately Tim was overmatched against the bigger Hawks guards. And by the time Rose was ready to reenter for the stretch run, any kind of team rhythm was long gone.

Markieff Morris’ shot looks flat as a pancake in the first two games — he finished 3-of-11 for the second night in a row. With Blake Griffin out for at least another handful of games, Markieff needs to find his happy stroke.

In all, the Hawks were much more than just the 38-point, nine assist, and seven rebound Trae Young show. But hey, while I’m at it, here’s part of the show:

Two Eastern Conference hopefuls meet on Thursday when the Atlanta Hawks visit the Detroit Pistons in an early-season NBA matchup. The Hawks, who placed fifth in the Southeast Division and 12th in the conference with a 29-53 record a season ago, were 12-29 on the road, while the Pistons (1-0) were 26-15 at home. Thursday’s game at Little Caesars Arena is slated to begin at 7 p.m. ET. The Hawks were 16-36 against Eastern Conference foes last season, while Detroit was 27-25 against the East. Detroit is a 1.5-point favorite in the latest Pistons vs. Hawks odds, up a half-point from the opener, while the over-under for total points scored is set at 222. You’ll want to see what the SportsLine Projection Model is saying about the game before making any Hawks vs. Pistons picks.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every NBA game 10,000 times, and anyone who followed it last season saw massive returns. The model finished 300-252 on all its top-rated NBA picks. On top-rated against-the-spread and money line picks alone, the model returned a whopping $4,280.

Now, the model has dialed in on Pistons vs. Hawks. We can tell you it’s leaning over, but it’s also generated an against the spread pick that hits in well over 50 percent of simulations. That one is available exclusively at SportsLine.

The model knows the Pistons have success against the Hawks over the past few years, winning two of three games against them last season and seven of the last 10 overall. The Pistons have also won three of their last four home games against Atlanta. Stretching back to last season, the Pistons have won three straight regular-season games.

Detroit’s bench came up big in Wednesday’s win over Indiana, scoring 57 points. Shooting guard Luke Kennard had the hot hand, hitting 8-of-13 field goals, including 6-of-9 from 3-point range, while point guard Derrick Rose scored 18 points on 6-of-11 shooting.

But just because Detroit opened the season on a high note does not guarantee it will cover the Pistons vs. Hawks spread on Thursday.

That’s because Atlanta has experienced success through the years, making 46 postseason appearances in 70 seasons, winning one championship (1957-1958), four conference titles and five division crowns, the last coming in 2014-15. The Hawks won last year’s only meeting in Detroit, 98-95.

Center/power forward John Collins will look to build on a strong season from a year ago when he averaged 19.5 points and 9.8 rebounds. In one game against the Pistons in 2018-19, Collins scored 19 points and grabbed six rebounds. Also making a difference for the Hawks is point guard Trae Young (back), who is expected to play Thursday. Young averaged 19.1 points and 8.1 assists last year. In three games against Detroit, he averaged 19.3 points and seven assists.
