DETROIT - Goran Dragic will need to keep up the tempo Wednesday night in Detroit as the Phoenix Suns look for a win against the Pistons.
The Suns are coming off a road win in Cleveland, one which narrowly helped them avoid their worst road start in a decade.
Detroit is also looking to launch a win streak, after coming out ahead over the Portland Trail Blazers at home on Monday.
The Suns have their work cut out for them. Alvin Gentry's squad is currently giving up a league-worst 103.3 points per game, but they were able to come out ahead of Cleveland as the Cavs struggled offensively in Tuesday's game.
Jared Dudley spoke out after the Cavs game about where his team is at.
"We're not Oklahoma City," Dudley said. "We're not the best team in the West, but we can play better and we can come home above .500."
The Suns will round out their road trip against Toronto, New York and Memphis.
