Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- The Phoenix Suns look lost without their quarterback. Steve Nash sat out his second straight game with a bruised left thigh, making the Suns' high-tempo offense look highly ordinary in a 94-80 loss to the surging Detroit Pistons. After signing a five-year, $65 million contract as a free agent, Nash has helped transform the Suns (31-8) into the NBA's highest-scoring team while leading them to the league's best record. But without the NBA's leader in assists for the second straight game, the Suns were held to a season low in points - more than 29 below their average - in losing their fourth consecutive contest. "They're losing their Peyton Manning, so it's a little different," Detroit point guard Chauncey Billups said. "The Colts would play a lot different without Peyton Manning. So do the Suns without Steve Nash. "We can't worry about who they didn't have or whatever. We played good. We were going to play the same way, the same schemes, whether Steve Nash was playing or not. He didn't play, we won the game and that's the bottom line." Nash was injured early in the second quarter of Friday's 101-83 loss at Indiana. He said before Monday's game that he expects to play Wednesday at home vs. Memphis. "We can win games without me, but not when we give up that many offensive rebounds," said Nash, whose club allowed 25 offensive boards. "We just have to get back to the way we were playing before, and we will. It's a long season, and things like this happen." Against the Pistons, whose defensive tenacity helped them to the NBA title last season, the Suns never were able to get into sync offensively. They shot just 35 percent (28-of-79), went 3-of-17 from the arc and had a season-low 11 assists. Joe Johnson led Phoenix with 17 points. Quentin Richardson scored 13 on 3-for-14 shooting, including 1-for-9 from the arc. It also was rough afternoon for Leandro Barbosa, who started in Nash's place and had more turnovers (three) than assists (two). "They just beat us on the boards, beat us all day, beat us up, beat us in anything you want to talk about," Suns coach Mike D'Antoni said. "They were just quicker to the ball, a bit stronger, and everything that you are afraid of. When you are a middleweight and they are a heavyweight and you cannot run around the ring, they are going to catch you and pound you, and that's what they did to us today." The Pistons had little trouble finding their rhythm offensively as they build a 20-7 lead seven minutes into the contest and held a 57-44 advantage at the break. Tayshaun Prince scored a career-high 26 points to pace the Pistons, who have won a season-high six straight games and 11 of 13. "The last three weeks, he has had a stretch as good as any young player is going to have," Detroit coach Larry Brown said. "He's getting better every game. We're running some things for him now, but I'm talking about every phase of the game. He's defending and rebounding and making good passes." Richard Hamilton added 16 points and Rasheed Wallace and Antonio McDyess each netted 13. Ben Wallace also was active with 11 points and 15 rebounds, including eight on the offensive glass. Detroit (23-14) moved into first place in the Central Division, one-half game ahead of Cleveland. "We've been playing good for a while now, and hopefully we can stay at this level and continue to get better," Billups said.
