Cunningham amassed 19 points (8-15 FG, 3-5 3Pt), two rebounds, five assists, one block and one steal in 31 minutes during Thursday's 114-103 loss to the Suns.

The rookie trailed only Jerami Grant (34 points) for high-scoring honors among Piston players in the contest, and he did so while knocking down over half his shots for the second straight game. Shooting efficiency has been an issue for Cunningham -- his field-goal rate sits at 37.1 percent on the season -- so the strong two-game stretch is an encouraging sign. With per-game averages of 14.1 points, 6.3 boards, 4.6 assists, 2.1 three-pointers and 1.2 steals, Cunningham has been one of the league's top rookies this season.
