Hawks hold off Pistons for 118-114 win
17-March-2016 07:59
Jeff Teague scored 22 points, including two crucial free Dustin Byfuglien Jerseythrows with 17.9 seconds left, and the Atlanta Hawks held off the Detroit Pistons 118-114 on Wednesday night for their sixth win in seven games.

Atlanta went on a 10-0 run late in the fourth quarter to take a 113-104 lead, then let the Pistons back in the game. Marcus Morris cut the lead to two with a three-point play with 18 seconds remaining, but Teague's pair of free throws made it 118-114, and neither team scored after that.

Andre Drummond had 18 and 18 rebounds for Detroit, but he went only 8 of 17 from the free throw line, and the Hawks were more than willing to foul him.

Al Horford scored 21 points for Atlanta.

The Pistons led by 11 in the third, but Atlanta wiped out that deficit before the quarter was even over, the game was tight for most of the fourth. Drummond's free throw put the Pistons up 104-103, but Paul Millsap answered with a three-point play.

The Hawks didn't make another field goal, but they shut down Detroit's offense for long enough to build a nine-point lead, and the Pistons couldn't quite come all the way back.

Detroit was playing the Ryan Strome Jerseyopener of a nine-game homestand that will be crucial to the Pistons' playoff hopes. Detroit was coming off a 43-point loss to Washington on Monday.

The Hawks made their first five shots from the field, and some early Detroit had the Pistons trailing 12-7 and coach Stan Van Gundy calling a timeout. Detroit bounced back nicely from that start, shooting 63 percent for the first quarter.

The Pistons led 62-61 at halftime.
