Pistons look to sweep Hawks

It's a couple of years old but it's still just as funny. The Pistons are in Atlanta tonight facing the Hawks for the fourth and final time. The Pistons escaped with a one-point win the first time these teams met but won handedly the next two. That said, this might not be the last we've seen of Atlanta -- if the playoffs started today, the Pistons and Hawks would actually meet in the first round. Can't say I'd mind that matchup -- the Hawks are just entertaining enough to make the series worth watching, yet bad enough to think the Pistons could get the sweep.

Update: Rip is playing tonight despite a bout with food poisoning. If food poisoning does for him what it did for Jarvis Hayes a while back, the Pistons should be in a good spot.

The game starts at 7pm on TV 20 as well as NBA TV, for those out-of-towners. As usual, leave your thoughts in the comments.
