(AP) — It might take some time for the new-look Phoenix Suns to start jelling.

The young Detroit Pistons are hoping it doesn’t take long for them to learn how to win.

Phoenix will try to avoid a second consecutive home loss Friday night when the Pistons also go for win No. 1 as they open a six-game western swing.

With Steve Nash and Grant Hill gone and nine new players on this year’s roster, the Suns are obviously still getting used to each other’s tendencies and learning how they fit in coach Alvin Gentry’s system. Their new starting forwards had very different debuts Wednesday, with Luis Scola going for 15 points and 11 rebounds while Michael Beasley had eight points on 2-of-9 shooting with four boards in an 87-85 loss to Golden State.
