The best that the Detroit Pistons have done this year was a four game winning streak, and they'll get a chance to match it when they play the Atlanta Hawks on the backs of a three game streak as well as a streak of winning five of their last six games on Friday.
Rodney Stuckey and crew will need a good performance to shut down Joe Johnson and the Hawks, who got the luxury of a quarter of their last game against the Charlotte Bobcats as they easily dispatched arguably the NBA's worst team.
Atlanta has won the last six games of the series that have taken place in Atlanta. Detroit did win the most recent game though, taking an 86-85 win in Detroit away from the Hawks thanks to a last second winner from Tayshaun Prince.
The game will be at Philips Arena at 7:30 p.m. ET.
