Pistons vs. Suns final score: Detroit moves to 0-2 after 4th-quarter comeback falls short

The opening leg of Detroit's six-game road trip to start the 2012 season didn't go well.

Despite a comeback attempt in the fourth quarter, the Pistons dropped their second straight game. This time, it was a 92-89 loss at Phoenix. The Pistons opened at home with a defeat from Houston, and after their stop in Phoenix, they have five more road games before returning to the Palace at Auburn Hills on Nov. 12.

Detroit fell to 0-2 in the young 2012 season.

The Pistons pulled to 91-89 on a three-pointer by Kyle Singler with four seconds remaining. They trailed the Suns by 10 with 4:15 to play, but after Suns guard Sebastian Telfair hit the second of two free throws, Brandon Knight missed a 28-footer at the buzzer.

Tayshaun Prince had 18 points to pace six Pistons in double figures. Jason Maxiell scored 13 of his 15 points in the first quarter, and Brandon Knight had 13 points and 10 assists.

The Pistons next travel to Los Angeles for a Nov. 4 game against the Lakers.
