Auburn Hills, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - It was an up and down 30 seconds of
emotions for Josh Smith.
Smith nailed a trey with 26 seconds left to break a tie, but on the next
possession he fouled Gerald Green on a 3-point attempt, with Green connecting
on all three from the stripe with 4.3 seconds to go.
Smith ended on high note though, as he drove to the rim with a defender draped
all over him and managed to bank the shot in to go ahead for good with 1.2
left to play as Detroit took a 110-108 win over Phoenix.
Smith finished with 25 points and 11 rebounds and Greg Monroe totaled 20
points and 12 rebounds for the Pistons, who have won their past two. Andre
Drummond added 13 points and 13 rebounds and Will Bynum chipped in 16 points.
Channing Frye scored a team-high 21 points and P.J. Tucker and Marcus Morris
scored 17 points apiece for Phoenix, which has lost three of its last four.
