KEY GAME INFORMATION
DETROIT: GUARDS: BRANDON JENNINGS got a three-year deal to prove himself as a capable point guard, not just a flashy scorer. He'll have plenty of talent surrounding him in Detroit . . . RODNEY STUCKEY is in a contract year and has plenty of motivation. The question is whether his decision-making will ever allow him to play full-time . . . CHAUNCEY BILLUPS could beat out Stuckey for the two-guard role. He can play both backcourt spots and should see plenty of minutes . . . KENTAVIOUS CALDWELL-POPE scored through a lot of double-teams in college. We'll see if the late-bloomer is able to be as effective against NBA athletes. With the depth in Detroit, he's looking at strictly second-unit minutes this year . . . WILL BYNUM is locked into a second-unit spot. FORWARDS: JOSH SMITH is Detroit's new alpha dog. Offensively, he's a boom-or-bust player now that he'll spend more time on the perimeter . . . KYLE SINGLER was a steadying presence last year, and with his ability to play multiple spots, he should continue to get solid minutes off the bench . . . Italian League MVP LUIGI DATOME gives them a Swiss army knife type off the bench . . . It's back to square one for JONAS JEREBKO, who fell out of favor under Lawrence Frank. He has the kind of positional flexibility and versatility GM Joe Dumars has talked up, but he'll have to earn second-unit minutes . . . Second-rounder TONY MITCHELL is an NBA athlete who can break this rotation if the effort is there . . . CHARLIE VILLANUEVA gets paid a lot of money to do very little. CENTERS: GREG MONROE will give up some touches with Josh Smith coming in, but being surrounded by athletes like Smith and Andre Drummond will cover up his defensive flaws . . . ANDRE DRUMMOND will log close to full-time minutes with Monroe playing primarily the four. His offensive game may never come, but he's a defensive and rebounding monster. JOSH HARRELLSON will be a fan favorite who plays hard in the rare occasions he sees the floor.
PHOENIX: GUARDS: ERIC BLEDSOE immediately becomes the Suns' best player. He dominated for stretches while backing up Chris Paul . . . GORAN DRAGIC and Bledsoe will play together since they're the two best players on this team. Dragic also has enough size to match up with most twos . . . After a disappointing stint as a starter, SHANNON BROWN will return to the second unit . . . KENDALL MARSHALL doesn't fit new coach Jeff Hornacek's up-tempo style. The Suns will move him if they can . . . ARCHIE GOODWIN looked lost at times at Kentucky, but his ability to get to the line bodes well for his NBA future . . . GERALD GREEN is the kind of athlete who could make an impact on an up-tempo second unit . . . MALCOLM LEE is here in case Marshall is dealt. FORWARDS: MARKIEFF MORRIS has some upside as a skilled stretch four. He's shown flashes over his first two seasons, and playing in Honracek's up-tempo system should only help him take the next step forward . . . MARCUS MORRIS is still a man without a position, a tweener in a bad way. The Suns will try to make him into an effective second-unit guy . . . CHANNING FRYE missed all of last season with a heart ailment, and the Suns don't seem to be expecting to get anything from him this season.CENTERS: MARCIN GORTAT will keep the seat warm for Alex Len. He doesn't fit this up-and-down offense . . . ALEX LEN must become more assertive and the bust factor is high, but 7-footers with his mobility and touch don't come around often . . . MILES PLUMLEE could get minutes as a defensive specialist after making just 5-of-21 FG as a rookie.

*Pistons-Suns Preview* ======================

By PAUL DIGIACOMO STATS Senior Editor

Detroit (25-42) at Phoenix (39-29), 10:00 p.m. EDT

Time is running out for the Detroit Pistons and Phoenix Suns as they continue to try to move into the top eight of their respective conferences.

A matchup between these teams in Phoenix appears to benefit the Suns more in their quest for a playoff berth.

The Suns look to extend their home winning streak in the series to six Friday night while sending Detroit to its first 12-game road skid in 21 years.

Phoenix (39-29) is in ninth place in the West, 1 1/2 games behind both Memphis and Dallas as it tries to reach the postseason for the first time since losing to the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2010 conference finals.

The Pistons (25-42) have even more ground to make up as they look to return to the playoffs for the first time since 2009, trailing eighth-place Atlanta by 6 1/2 games in the East.

The Suns appear to be back on track after a rough stretch, winning three of four following seven losses in 10 contests. They returned from a three-game eastern trip to beat Orlando 109-93 on Wednesday behind a late 23-3 run.

"I told them to just get after it and go take the team if you want to be a playoff team, and that's what they did," coach Jeff Hornacek said.

Goran Dragic scored 18 points to lead five Suns in double figures and Gerald Green added 14, including three 3-pointers during the outburst. All 13 active players saw the court, with 12 of them scoring.

"We got everybody minutes. Again, guys are a little tired and banged up," Hornacek told the Suns' official website. "Games like this can really help us in terms of being really rested going forward."

Phoenix is in the top 10 in the NBA in 3-point shooting at 37.2 percent, and is 22 for 48 (45.8) in its last two wins. Green is among the league leaders with 169 made 3s, and he's 12 for 20 from long range over the last three games.

The Suns hit 13 3s in the first matchup this season with Detroit, but Green went 1 for 7 and missed from beyond the arc at the buzzer of a 110-108 loss Jan. 11.

Josh Smith's driving bank shot with 1.2 seconds left gave the Pistons the win in that meeting. He had 25 points, 11 rebounds and five assists.

Smith wasn't around to see the end of Detroit's 13th loss in 16 games Wednesday after picking up two technical fouls and getting ejected midway through the third quarter.

The Pistons were already short-handed with center Andre Drummond out with a neck injury, but they managed to keep it close before faltering down the stretch of a 118-109 defeat to Denver in the opener of a four-game western swing.

"If you want to be a good defensive team you have to have multiple efforts," coach John Loyer said. "We had spurts where we had multiple efforts. But, to win on the road you have to have multiple efforts for 48 minutes; especially when it is a six-point game down the stretch."

Detroit hasn't dropped 12 in a row away from home since Jan. 5-March 5, 1993.

The Pistons have scored just 88.4 per game in dropping five straight at Phoenix.
