ATLANTA, GA (WTVB) -The Detroit Pistons have lost ten straight games at Atlanta with last night’s 93-85 setback against the Hawks at Philips Arena. Brandon Jennings tallied 21 points, seven boards and six assists for Detroit while Rodney Stuckey added 18 points off the bench and Josh Smith had 11 points and six rebounds in defeat against his former team. Stuckey was finished for the night after his sixth foul on an offensive push-off with 3:30 remaining and then Pistons head coach Maurice Cheeks was ejected less than a minute later after being hit with his second technical foul. It was all part of a 4-minute swing that saw the Hawks turn a close game into a relatively easy win.
Detroit, now 4-7, will have a rematch with Atlanta tomorrow night at the Palace.
