Strong effort on glass propels Suns to win over Pistons


By Mike Tulumello, for NBA.com

PHOENIX (NBA.com exclusive) -- For the Suns, the first shot isn't necessarily the last shot.

And that's a great thing for a smallish basketball team.

The Suns manhandled the visiting Pistons on the boards early Sunday night en route to an easy 117-91 win.

At 11-3, the Suns are tied with the Hawks for the NBA's best record, even though they've only played five home games (they're 5-0, and they've won 14 straight at home going back to last season).

The Suns were worried, if not outright panicked, by a poor showing on the boards during their mediocre preseason.

But entering Sunday, the Suns ranked a surprising 10th in offensive rebounding percentage percentage at .276 (the NBA average is .265) and 16th in overall rebounding (.497), just under the 50 percent average.

Suns coach Alvin Gentry acknowledged a "sense of relief" over the showing.

"It was a huge concern because we had not done a good job in the preseason," Gentry said.

The potential for trouble "reared its head" for the first time in a loss Thursday at the Hornets, when they were outmatched 56-38 on the boards.

The Hornets grabbed 25 offensive rebounds compared to the Suns' 24 defensive boards.

So the Suns re-emphasized the matter before Sunday's game.

They ended up almost dead even (the Pistons had a 39-38 edge), but the Suns killed them, 22-13 in the first half, when the game was decided.

The Suns broke open the game late in the first half and led 58-42 at the break.

They got eight rebounds from Grant Hill and Louis Amundson and seven more from Channing Frye.

For the season, the Suns are getting 7.5 boards per game from both Amar'e Stoudemire and Hill, 5.6 from Frye, 5.4 from Jason Richardson plus 4.2 each from reserves Jared Dudley and Amundson.

Even when the Pistons hit the boards, they didn't necessarily produce, as when Rodney Stuckey missed an uncontested put back at the start of the second half.

Frye responded by hitting a 3-pointer for a 61-44 lead.

Stoudemire and Charlie Villanueva spent a while guarding each other (though Villanueva started out on Channing Frye while Ben Wallace took Stoudemire), with the Suns' big man getting the better results.

Stoudemire shot 9-for-14 for a game-high 21 points, while Villanueva was 5-for-13 for 13 points.

Stoudemire says he is "slowly" seeing his basketball skills return after taking seven months off from basketball activities because of two eye operations.

"That's the longest I've gone without basketball, ever," Stoudemire said.

Ben Gordon was ineffective; the Pistons' guard shot 3-for-11 for 10 points.

Gentry praised the defense of Jason Richardson and Leandro Barbosa.

"In this building, he [Gordon] usually walks away with 25 or 30 points."

Richardson said, "We just tried to crowd him and make it tough for him."

For the Pistons (5-9), the losses continue to mount for a team missing two key players. Richard Hamilton has been out since the opener with a sprained right ankle, while Tayshaun Prince has played in just three games because of a ruptured disc in his lower back.

Prince's consecutive-game streak of 497 seems like ancient history.

What's left seems like a mish-mash of a team that on the one hand likes to go with three guards, yet doesn't score much.

Their 92.6-point average is the league's fifth lowest.

John Kuester, the team's first-year head coach, praised his team beforehand, saying, "Our energy has been outstanding" on this road trip.

But not on this night, when they were playing their fourth game in six nights.

"We were playing a tired team," Gentry said. "We did a good job of jumping on them early."

The Pistons finished the trip 0-4.

"There are no excuses in this league," Kuester said.

"Our frame of mind was right, but sometimes you have to lie to your body...and just say, "Hey, you got to go.'

"But unfortunately, we didn't have the juice that we've had."

Gordon said, "You definitely have to play tricks with yourself.

"You just have to lose yourself in the game and just get so into it that you aren't even thinking of your fatigue level.

"That's part of the NBA. Some nights it's just tough."
