TIP-OFF: 7:30pm

TELEVISION: SportSouth

RADIO:
Hawks Radio Network, Audio League Pass

GAME NOTES:
Hawks/Pistons

ATLANTA INJURY REPORT:
Speedy Claxton blah blah blah rah-tah-tee-tah.

DETROIT INJURY REPORT: Allen Iverson (flu) and Rodney Stuckey (sprained right ankle) are game-time decisions.

FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY: Detroit -3.5, 188.5 o/u

OTHER PERSPECTIVES:
Piston Powered, Detroit Bad Boys, Need4Sheed

PREVIOUSLY, THE DETROIT PISTONS...played without Allen Iverson and blew a 15-point fourth quarter lead to lose 107-102 in Chicago last night despite 30 points from their (now firmly entrenched) sixth-man Rip Hamilton.

The Hawks won the lone meeting between the teams earlier this season, 85-78 on December 21st in Atlanta.

Consider this an open thread for all pre-game, in-game, and post-game (but pre-recap) thoughts.

There's a cliché about sportswriters loving one sentence paragraphs. The AP recap for this game is a great example. Not an example of great writing, though.

I understand that tossing out an "official" recap minutes after the game ends (as AP does, and it's generall a good thing) can be chaotic, and tends to involve hurriedly getting all your thoughts together, but at least demonstrate that you went to school. I mean, I would have a tough time sharing writing that I'm not proud of.
