The Detroit Pistons staged a furious comeback on Wednesday night, but it was ultimately all for naught in what was a 126-119 loss to the Atlanta Hawks. Detroit came from 22 points down to take a 101-100 lead with four seconds left in regulation, but Al Horford made one of two free throws to force overtime. In the first overtime, the Pistons held a four-point lead with under two minutes remaining, but could not hold on for a victory. Atlanta dominated the second overtime as they pulled to victory.

The Pistons were led by point guard Will Bynum, who came off the bench to score 31 points in 36 minutes on 13-of-26 shooting. He was not one of the two Pistons with a double-double, though -- those were Andre Drummond (16 points, 12 rebounds) and Rodney Stuckey (16 points, 11 assists). Austin Daye also had one of his better games of the season, chipping in with 8 points and 11 boards in 32 minutes.

Detroit will be off on Thursday after returning home from Atlanta. They'll host the Miami Heat at 7:30 p.m. ET on Friday night.
