Auburn Hills, MI (Sports Network) - Despite a sluggish fourth quarter, the
Detroit Pistons rolled to their fourth consecutive win by holding off the
Atlanta Hawks, 85-84, at the Palace of Auburn Hills on Friday.
After taking an 83-66 lead four minutes into the fourth, the Pistons scored
just two more points the rest of the way on what turned out to be the deciding
basket on a layup from Rodney Stuckey, who returned to the lineup after a
three-game absence from an ankle injury.
With just seconds remaining, Al Horford passed to an open Lou Williams in the
corner, but Andre Drummond leaped in to get just enough of the ball to deflect
it away from its trajectory, allowing Detroit to hold on for the win.
