My thoughts exactly
It started in the third quarter. Like a switch flipped and anytime a Pistons forward twitched a muscle it was a foul on the Suns.

Who would have thought that the Suns' identity would be defensive. If they win, they'd have won on that end.

I really don't like this offense, against a zone you have to shoot 3s but it's like they're not even trying to run plays. Just pass it around until you see an open 3.

Someone's gotta get in Book's ear and tell him that he's gotta start driving to the basket and drawing fouls. Too many jumpers when everyone's cold. Cam came up big with a big 3 and some really good defense, Mikal with a nice fastbreak dunk.

21 fouls on the suns, 10 on the pistons.

part is officiating, part is being way to passive.

That's half of the recipe to beat a zone. The other half is rebounding. The Suns missed the open shots and didn't rebound.

This one's on Monty.

You have to be able to score against a zone defense.

Poor pass to Bridges. Watching the starters is uncomfortable right now.
