NBA scores: Pistons fall to Suns, 92-89

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

The Pistons fell to 0-2 and are all alone at the bottom of the Central Division following a 92-89 loss to the Suns on Friday night, which also saw the rest of the division in action.

The Pistons got double-figure scoring from six players, but it wasn't enough in a 92-89 loss to the Suns that dropped Detroit to 0-2 on the season and left it all alone at the bottom of the Central Division.

Tayshaun Prince scored 18 points and Brandon Knight chipped in 13 points and 10 assists for the Pistons. They had a chance to tie things up in the closing seconds, but Knight's desperation heave at the buzzer hit nothing but air.

Elsewhere in the Central, the Bulls stomped the Cavaliers, 115-86, to move to 2-0 on the season and take sole possession of first place. The Pacers fell into a third-place tie with the Cavs following a 90-89 loss to the Bobcats, who held on for a season-opening victory after losing their final 23 games last season.

The Bucks picked up a solid road win over the Celtics, 99-88, behind a 21-point, 13-assist effort from Brandon Jennings.

Also on Friday night, the Knicks trounced the Heat, 104-84, and the Clippers dropped the Lakers to 0-3 with a 105-95 victory. James Harden led the Rockets with 45 points in a 109-102 win over the Hawks, and the Magic got 29 points and 10 rebounds from Glen Davis in a 102-89 home victory over the Nuggets.
