Preview: The Atlanta Hawks and Detroit Pistons will get together Monday night at the Palace.

Atlanta is looking to snap their two game losing streak, as the Bobcats downed them Saturday night. The loss sent Atlanta to a tie with Orlando for second place in the Southeast Division, and also fourth overall in the Eastern Conference.

Atlanta as a team rank 22nd in the league with 96.9 points per game.

For Detroit, they look to play the role of spoiler, as they are five games out of a postseason position. The Pistons are coming off a 106-92 loss to the Miami Heat Friday night. Detroit hosts the Portland Trailblazers Sunday so this will the latter game of a back-to-back. The Pistons are led in scoring by Rodney Stuckey who is scoring 15.2 points per game. Detroit ranks as the fourth worst offensive team in the league, scoring 94.7 points per game. The Hawks and Pistons have met on the court twice this season, with the two teams splitting the games.
