Hawks vs. Pistons: Detroit faces Atlanta in preseason finale

Tom Szczerbowski-US PRESSWIRE

The Detroit Pistons host the Atlanta Hawks in a final tune-up before the regular season starts next week.

The Detroit Pistons wrap up their 2012 preseason schedule on Friday when they host the Atlanta Hawks. The Pistons will look to finish their exhibition season at .500, which they can do with a win.

Detroit is coming off an ugly 95-76 loss at the hands of the Minnesota Timberwolves up in Canada. Rodney Stuckey scored 21 points for the Pistons, but only two other players scored in double figures.

Stuckey leads the team in scoring this preseason at 13.1 points per game, although he has struggled with his shot. Greg Monroe has been the best Piston so far, with averages of 13.0 points and 5.3 rebounds. Rookie center Andre Drummond struggled against the Timberwolves, but has shown some promise in other games.

Atlanta has gone 3-3 this preseason as they attempt to acclimate a host of new players. Newly acquired guard Louis Williams leads the team in scoring, putting up 13.2 points per game.

Point guard Jeff Teague has been battling an ankle problem, and it's unclear whether he will play on Friday night.

Tip-off for Hawks/Pistons is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET.
