Detroit Pistons vs Atlanta Hawks (By: Miyagi)
The Pistons a huge edge in Center position with Drummond over weaker Dedmon who is not the typical Center, though the Hawks have done a great job in preventing their opponents from feeding the ball inside the paint recently and they will foul terrible FT shooter Drummond on sight, so, no value for him although he has a good matchup.
The Hawks have had issues in PG position and rookie Trae's defense is something he has to work thus Jackson is the other player to look for here. He has the long-range shot and the Pistons take a lot-lot of those three-point shots with Bullock and Jackson as of late, while he is also aggressive and against the Hawks who don't have a big guy under the basket to prevent the opponents from attacking them, he will look to attack the basket everytime he has an open lane/ off screens or in multiple occasions where Griffin will draw a double-team on him.
Reggie has a decent edge here and a good chance to boost his numbers which have dropped (13.5ppg) in December.
