The Pistons are on their way back to Detroit after getting blown out by the Suns 91-117. Stellar play from Steve Nash and Amare Stoudemire really set the tone for the Suns, but Detroit’s lack of pretty much anything after the half did the Pistons in.
- That was not a fun road trip for Detroit who are now on their way home to face the Cavs on Wednesday… on a 5 game losing streak.
- 13 in the first half for Charlie Villanueva and nothing in the second. He was 5-for13 on the night with 8 boards and a blocked shot.
- Nash is still doing his thing.
- Just 3-for-11 for Gordon, 1-for-6 from downtown.
- The Suns played well and took advantage of every opportunity the Pistons gave them. Can’t let anyone shoot 57% from the floor.
- Yeah…..it was that bad coach Q.
- Great quote from Will Bynum, who scored 11 in 26 minutes with 4 assists 2 steals, 4 boards and three turnovers. When asked in the locker room how the ankle was…
“I don’t make any excuses for anything, if I’m out there on court playing then I’m 100%”
- Looks like DaJuan Summers has pushed himself ahead of Austin Daye in the rotation. Summers played well, knocking down threes as if they were nothing. He went 5-for-11 for 13 points in 22 minutes on the floor. He’s fast and he’s doing dirty work… I like.
- Though the Pistons kept it close in the first half, you could see the gas running out. Nothing much in the second, especially when Phoenix got blazing hot.
- Longest winless road trip since going 0-5 from Feb. 24-March 2, 2003.
- I know many Pistons fans were in Phoenix….sorry your only game of the year ended like that. If you were there, by all means leave ’em in the comments and tell us how it was.
- Sweeeeeeede! His hustle every night is evident to us all. Jerebko scored 9 with 6 boards, an assist and 2 blocked shots.
- Rodney Stuckey 4-for-15 on the night for 8 points, 5 assists, and 2 boards.
- What’s up with Kwame Brown? DNP today and little play on the road trip altogether. It doesn’t help that Chris Wilcox shamed the Pistons by getting blocked by a pony-tailed dude.

- Comment away, go ahead get it out before the Pistons take on the Cavs Wednesday.
