Notebook: Suns 98, Pistons 92


Mike Tulumello, for NBA.com
Posted Sat Mar 22, 2014 2:18 AM - Updated Sat Mar 22, 2014 2:18 AM

THE FACT: The Suns and Pistons combined to go 34-for-61 on free throws.

THE LEAD: The visiting Pistons outplayed the Phoenix Suns for much of Friday night, but shot just 10-for-26 from the free-throw line as the Suns pulled away late for a 98-92 win.

The Pistons' .385 free-throw percentage ties for the second-worst by a team shooting at least 26 free throws dating to the 1985-86 season. On Feb. 11, 2005, Miami shot .370 (10-for-27) and Sacramento shot .385 (10-for-26) on Nov. 9, 1991.

The Suns' (40-29) Eric Bledsoe took over a game for the first time since his return from injury. He scored eight of his 23 points in the final 3:22. Goran Dragic had 20 points for the Suns.

For the Pistons (25-43), Rodney Stuckey scored 23 off the bench. Andre Drummond had 13 points and 16 boards, while Greg Monroe had 16 points, eight rebounds and five assists.

The Suns pulled within a half game of the Memphis Grizzlies for the final playoff spot in the West. The Grizzlies own the tiebreaker.

QUOTABLE: "No question. I think I had a better feel today."
-- Phoenix's Eric Bledsoe

THE STAT: The Suns' preferred starting lineup of Dragic, Bledsoe, P.J. Tucker, Channing Frye and Miles Plumlee has a 16-7 record.

TURNING POINT: With the score tied at 86, Bledsoe hit a 3-pointer from up top. Markieff Morris then scored on a drive to the hoop, While the Pistons misfired, the Suns shot 2-for-4 from the line. Then Bledsoe split the defense for a driving layup, and his two free throws for a decisive 97-90 Suns' lead with 31 seconds left.

QUOTABLE II: "I told the guys a couple game ago that the rest of the season you're going to have to scrap and claw and fight for every play, every possession to have a chance of getting into these playoffs."
-- Suns coach Jeff Hornacek

QUOTABLE III: "This team is better than their record. They have all the talent in the world. Their record shows different."
-- Phoenix's Eric Bledsoe on the Pistons

QUOTABLE IV: "Some nights they go in and some nights they don't. It's not for lack of trying and it's not for lack of preparation. They just didn't go in tonight."
-- Pistons coach John Loyer on his team's free-throw shooting

HOT: Markieff Morris shot 6-for-9; he nailed his only 3-point try.

NOT: The Pistons' Josh Smith shot 0-for-8 from the line. In one amazing sequence, after he was fouled by Dragic on a 3-pointer, he missed all three. None were close.

QUOTABLE V: "I mean you do start to think about it a little bit."
-- Detroit's Josh Smith said when asked the free throws

BAD MOVE: Loyer played Smith 43 minutes.

IN THE ARENA: The Suns had their second sellout of the season; it was "Star Wars Night."

ROOKIE WATCH:The Suns' Alex Len struggled through 13 minutes, with zero points and three rebounds. He did manage to block three shots. For the Pistons, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope shot 2-for-2 and had four points and two boards in nine minutes.

NOTABLE: Dragic is averaging a career-high 20.4 points on career highs of 51 percent shooting and nearly 42 percent on 3-pointers. Only Dragic and Kevin Durant have 50/40 shooting averages (.549 and .403 for Durant)...The Suns are 17-10 against Eastern teams.

UP NEXT: For the Pistons, Saturday @ Los Angeles Clippers, Monday @ Utah and Wednesday vs. Cavaliers. For the Suns, Sunday @ Minnesota, Monday @ Atlanta and Wednesday @ Washington.
