Game Story

AUBURN HILLS, Michigan (Ticker) -- Rodney Rogers scored 19 points and Stephon Marbury added 14 as the Phoenix Suns cruised to a 99-71 victory over the Detroit Pistons, who posted their lowest home scoring total in team history.

Rogers added 10 rebounds and Penny Hardaway chipped in with 10 points, eight rebounds and five assists for the Suns, who enjoyed a 51-32 edge on the boards and held the Pistons to a season-low 25 field goals.

The Pistons' previous worst effort at home was 72 points against the New York Knicks on April 12, 1992. Detroit's starting five combined for a paltry 25 points.

"They were clearly the aggressor. We had 19 turnovers, that's too many," Detroit coach Rick Carlisle said. "A very disappointing effort. You get outrebounded by 19 and give up 18 offensive rebounds, a staggering number."

Jerry Stackhouse and Corliss Williamson collected 10 points apiece as Detroit had a three-game winning streak snapped and fell to 2-8 against Pacific Division foes. Rookie Zeljko Rebraca and Jon Barry each contributed nine points off the bench.

"When you don't put the ball in the basket, things like that happen," said Stackhouse, who was just 4-of-15 from the field. "Of course we're disappointed. We just have to try and bounce back from that and get ready because we got a nice stretch of games coming up, and they're meaningful games."

Phoenix shot 46 percent (41-of-89) from the field while holding the Pistons to just 37 percent (25-of-68).

Former Sun Cliff Robinson, facing his former team for the first time since being traded to Detroit in July, had four points and six rebounds, but committed a game-high seven turnovers.

"There were a few situations where I was trying to do too much and that's where I turned the ball over," admitted Robinson, who spent four seasons in a Suns uniform.

Phoenix pulled away at the end of the first quarter and didn't look back. With the Suns already ahead 19-17, a layup by Jake Voskuhl with 23 seconds left and early second-quarter buckets by Stephon Marbury and Tony Delk padded the lead. Hardaway's free throw 3:02 into the period gave the Suns a 26-17 advantage.

"We were just trying to come out and be aggressive," Hardaway said. "It felt really good coming out of the (All-Star) break that we could get a streak going, and you have to start with the first one."
