Pistons vs. Hawks: Detroit searching for 3rd consecutive victory Wednesday

USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Pistons and Atlanta Hawks will tip off on Wednesday from Philips Arena in a key conference battle.

Fresh off a pair of wins over the lowly Washington Wizards last week, the Detroit Pistons will try to keep things rolling on Wednesday night against the Atlanta Hawks.

Though he continues to see sporadic playing time, Pistons rookie Andre Drummond racked up 25 rebounds and six blocked shots over the two-game series with Washington and has every reason to enter Wednesday's game with his confidence soaring. Drummond has managed to block at least one shot in nine straight games, and should only see his minutes increase with his team already well out of the playoff picture.

The Pistons have yet to face the Hawks thus far in 2012-13, but were able to pull off only one victory in four meetings with Atlanta last season. Just two and a half games out of first place in the East at the moment, the Hawks hold an impressive 10-4 mark against teams from their own conference this year, but have dropped three of their last five games.

When: Wednesday, Dec. 26

Where: Philips Arena, Atlanta, Ga.

Game time: 7:30 p.m. ET

TV channel: Fox Sports Detroit

Spread: Detroit +7.5
