Detroit Pistons (16-56) vs. Atlanta Hawks (35-36)
When: 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Where: State Farm Arena in Atlanta.
TV: Bally Sports Detroit Extra.
Radio: WWJ-AM 950 (Pistons radio affiliates).
Betting line: Hawks by 12½.
Game notes: The Pistons have lost 14 of 15, and have two fewer wins than Houston for the worst record in the NBA. They continue to have a lengthy injury report down the stretch. The Hawks are 3-0 vs. the Pistons this season, winning 130-105 in Atlanta in December in the previous matchup. They employ former Pistons forward Saddiq Bey, who was dealt in the James Wiseman acquisition. He’s averaging 10.1 points and shooting 45.3% on 3-pointers in 14 games with Atlanta. … The Hawks are fighting for play-in tournament seeding, currently eighth in the Eastern Conference, and need to hold off Toronto and Chicago to keep that spot and give themselves two chances to win one game to make the playoffs. Atlanta suffered an embarrassing loss in San Antonio on Sunday, blowing a 24-point lead in the second half of a 126-118 loss.
