The short-handed Pistons lost 114-103 to the Hawks last night at the Place of Auburn Hills. It was Detroit’s fourth defeat in five games since the All-Star break.
Last night, the missing Pistons included Andrew Drummond, Brandon Knight and Will Bynum. Detroit got 22 points from Rodney Stuckey while Jonas Jerebko had 21 off the bench. Drummond missed his ninth straight game with an injured back. Knight sat for the third game in-a-row because of a hyperextended knee and Bynum was serving a one-game suspension for punching an Indiana player in the stomach during Saturday’s loss to the Pacers. The Pistons, now 22-and-37, play tomorrow night at Washington
