Hawks run out of gas in the Motor City

The Atlanta Hawks entered Detroit on the heels of a thrilling comeback victory at Madison Square Garden, but every game in the NBA is a new adventure. The Detroit Pistons had stumbled as of late after turning the corner of sorts.

Detroit followed a 6-2 streak with a 1-6 skid that included elimination from postseason contention, but onlookers would never know it from the proceedings on Wednesday night. In the end, the Hawks were outclassed by a Pistons team with little to play for besides player development and ultimately fell 122-101.

Sparingly used Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot got the start Wednesday night with John Collins and Danilo Gallinari on the mend.
