Al Horford came up big in giving the Hawks their second straight road victory, a 114-103 win over the Detroit Pistons. Horford finished with 23 points and 22 rebounds to lead the Hawks to their fifth win in six games.
Jeff Trague finished with 20 points and 12 assists - his third straight 20+ point game, and Josh Smith also added 23 points. The Hawks took advantage of the Pistons' shorthanded roster, thanks to injury to Brandon Knight and suspension of Will Bynum, going up by as many as 26 points to coast to the victory.
Rodney Stuckey had 22 points for the Pistons while Jonas Jerebkok had 21 points off the bench. There was not much help elsewhere, however, as 17 Pistons turnovers gave the Hawks extra chances.
The Hawks moved to 2-0 on their season-long six game road trip. They also moved into fourth place in the Eastern Conference, percentage points ahead of the Brooklyn Nets. They will next travel to Utah, to face the Jazz in a 9:00 PM tipoff Wednesday night.
