(AP) — Atlanta Hawks coach Larry Drew liked the poise his team showed in its latest game. Judging by their matchups with the Detroit Pistons this season, the Hawks might need that again to keep rolling on their longest road trip of the season.

The Hawks seek their fifth victory in six games and a season-high fourth in a row away from home Monday night against the Pistons.

Atlanta (31-23) trailed by as many as 10 points in the fourth quarter Saturday at Milwaukee before rallying for a 103-102 victory in the opener of a six-game trek. Al Horford hit the go-ahead shot with 5.9 seconds left and tied Jeff Teague for the scoring lead with 23 points.

“We were able to maintain our composure, particularly in the second half,” Drew said. “When we went down 10, we didn’t panic. We came up with some big plays down the stretch.”
