Those Detroit Pistons sure know how to finish a game. The Phoenix Suns, a work in progress, have a knack for blowing fourth-quarter leads at home.

Richard Hamilton scored 11 points in the final 7½ minutes and Chauncey Billups sank a game-clinching 3-pointer with 16 seconds to go to keep the Pistons unbeaten with a 111-104 victory over the Suns on Thursday night.

Billups had 27 points and 11 assists for the Pistons, the league’s lone team without a loss. At 5-0, they are off to their best start since they won their first eight en route to the NBA title in 1988-89.

Flips a good coach, he kind of got a raw deal in Minnesota. Its not his fault Cassell and Spreewell decided to negotiate contracts for the whole year instead of winning basketball games.
Stoudamire is a huge piece to be missing in PHoenix. He is the best player on their team, not Nash. I said this last year and people flamed me, its true, he is the MVP of that team.

What is is his fault is running out of timeouts and having to have Garnett sit for 4 minutes in the fourth because you can't get him into the game.....

FLIP is incompetent.

Yea the Pistons look terrible right now. Minnesota looks great without him. He made a mistake or 2 in Minnesota, who cares? Every coach does it. Flip is good coach, you dont know what youre talking about, I dont care how much basketball you watch..

Hey, it's the Section126 "come in and chuck some anti-Piston bombs" routine! Good times all around!

What I've seen so far with Saunders is a motion offense that maximizes everyone's talents (especially Rip Hamilton, who's been absolutely incredible), applied to a veteran team that already takes more pride in its defense than anyone in the NBA. Where's the problem?
