Atlanta Hawks guard Jeff Teague had 12 points and 12 assists in Saturday night’s win over the Pistons. It wasn’t the most memorable performance of his career, but he shouldn’t have been forgotten, either.

The Hawks did just that, though, stranding Teague at The Palace after the team bus left without him.

Teague posted a photo to his Instagram account, showing him talking on a cell phone in the loading dock and carrying a pizza.

He captioned the photo: “When Og Juan didn't hold you down and the bus leaves you I got to see my sister so it's coo.”

The Hawks improved to 44-30 and are holding on to the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference playoff race after the 112-95 win over the Pistons.
