@ PHOENIX, AZ:
The Pistons picked on an NBA
Western Conference weak sister
for a second straight night to earn
back-to-back road wins for the first
time since December in a 115-88
decision at Phoenix late Tuesday night.
Sidelined since DEC 26TH with an ankle injury, PG Reggie Jackson returned
to the Detroit lineup with impressive results in limited minutes.
Jackson had 7-P & 2-A in 15-mins. Detroit went ahead to stay 25-23 on
Jackson's 25-foot jumper 1:32 into the 2nd-QTR.
The Pistons held a 44-38 halftime lead before turning the contest into a
second half blowout. Detroit was ahead by 23 in the 3rd-QTR and took the
first of two 28-P/4th-QTR leads when Blake Griffin hit a step-back 3-pointer
to beat the shot clock, then dished off to underneath uncovered Luke Kennard
for a 105-77 score with 3:33 remaining. With reserves on the floor, Henry
Ellenson's bucket with 2-mins left made for a 30-P spread at 109-79.
Griffin just missed a triple-double with game-highs of 26-P & 10-A plus 9-RB.
Kennard scored 16-P, Ish Smith 13, Reggie Bullock 12 and Andre Drummond &
James Ennis III 10-P each. Drummond also grabbed 10-RB and posted a game-best
five blocked shots.
The Suns Alex Len scored 19-P and pulled down a game-high 12-RB. Troy
Daniels added 15-P, Josh Jackson 15-P and reserve Marquese Chriss 10-P.
The Pistons became 2-3 on their 6-game western road swing. Detroit (32-39)
inched within five and a half games of idle Milwaukee for the last NBA Eastern
Conference playoff spot. Detroit has 11 games remaining and the Bucks have 12.
Already eliminated from playoff consideration, Phoenix lost its ninth in a row
and is dead last in the NBA at 19-53.
