Jeff Teague most likely came off the hardwood at Detroit's Palace Of Auburn Hills more than content with his efforts on Saturday night.

In just over 32 minutes on the court, the Atlanta Hawks guard produced a 12 point, 12 assist double-double as the franchise racked up their 44th win of the season.

However, while Teague may have felt he had a memorable night, it doesn't look like it went noticed by everyone on the Hawks. That's after the NBA star posted a picture to his Instagram feed revealing he had been left behind at the Pistons arena by the Hawks' team bus.

Fortunately, the 27-year-old didn't seem too offended and took the mishap in good heart:

Teague, presumably calling for a ride in the picture above, accompanied the post with a light-hearted message:

"When Og Juan didn't hold you down and the bus leaves you I got to see my sister so it's coo."

Keeping pace

The Hawks may have left Teague behind as they departed the scene of a 112-95 win over Detroit but, with eight wins in their last 10 games, Atlanta has ensured they aren't getting left behind in the playoff picture out East.

Mike Budenholzer's team have lost only three times since February 26 - to Washington, Toronto and Golden State in overtime - and have won 13 times during that period.

Hitting form at just the right time, the Hawks now sit third in the Eastern Conference as they look to secure the best possible seed for the upcoming playoffs.

Teague has been an integral part of their recent success and is averaging 15 points per game this season. Maybe he will need to up that by a couple of points if he wants to be certain of a place on the team bus moving forward.
