The Pistons conclude the homestand Sunday afternoon when the Miami Heat visits LCA.

Bradley made things tough for Hawks point guard Dennis Schroder. He hounded Schroder all evening, easily slipping screens to stay in front of one of the few Hawks threats.

Schroder finished with 17 points, 11 assists and three turnovers.

After going 0 for 7 at the free-throw line in the 114-97 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night, Drummond hit his first free throw of the game, cleanly swishing the shot. He finished the game 4 for 6 from the line. His two huge free throws with 1:28 remaining gave the Pistons a 100-98 lead.

After 16 assists on 24 made baskets in taking a 57-41 lead at halftime, the Pistons offense stagnated in the second half. Van Gundy has moved to more ball movement, but one-on-one play was the norm in the third quarter from point guard Jackson and Tobias Harris (16 points, eight rebounds).


The Pistons bench has been a team strength, but the Hawks won the scoring battle, 33-31.
