The Hawks came back from a big deficit against Pistons before fading to a 111-104 loss on Friday night.
The Hawks (2-10) trailed 57-41 at halftime before rallying to tie the game on Kent Bazemore’s three-pointer with less than four minutes to play. After Pistons center Andre Drummond made two free throws for a 100-98 lead, Hawks rookie John Collins’ alley-oop dunk tied it again. But Reggie Jackson responded with a three-pointer that put the Pistons (9-3) ahead for good.
Jackson scored 22 points for the Pistons, who won their fourth straight game. Bazemore led the Hawks with 22 points.
