This could get ugly, and maybe it should: Suns vs. Pistons

Game Tips at 8:00 EST

Detroit Pistons: 23-51 (16-22 home)

Phoenix Suns: 49-26 (20-17 road)

Oppo Research

The Suns have won nine in a row, the Pistons have lost nine in a row. Do the math.

I should note that Amare Stoudemire has been outstanding since the trade deadline. Hey, Phoenix, maybe you shouldn't be so excited to trade a star center in the prime of his career. I mean, yah?

Keys for Detroit

Lose -- But don't make it obvious.

Play Villanueva -- Whatever is going on between Coach Kuester really isn't worth damaging a long term relationship over. The guy can be good, and is almost certainly part of our future.

Play Daye - I'm going to cut and paste this for the rest of the season.

Question of the Game

With a ten game losing streak looming, does this become a pride game, a la the T-Wolves on Wednesday? Even if so, the Suns are still jostling for position, so it's not like they're down for a charity game.
