Rajon Rondo combined his first regular-season game in Atlanta with a win, as the Hawks achieved their first 3-0 start since the 2016-2017 season.
The veteran guard stayed on the court for a limited 15 minutes, but that was enough for him to record 12 points, eight assists with zero turnovers in the game against the Detroit Pistons
The Hawks had seven players in double-digits to secure victory over Detroit (120-128) in their home season opener. Trae Young was again amazing putting up a game-high 29 points, on 6-of-13 from the field.
