DETROIT, Michigan — Keifer Sykes scored 12 of his 29 points — including a windmill dunk — in the last 4 minutes helping Green Bay win its fifth straight with a 75-66 victory over Detroit Saturday.
Sykes banged down a 3-pointer with 3:59 remaining, giving the league-champion Phoenix (24-5, 14-2 Horizon) some breathing room after Detroit's Juwan Howard had pulled the Titans to 59-58. Sykes hit another 3 and went 4-for-4 from the line along with his emphatic dunk down the stretch — those last six points coming in the final 39 seconds.
Howard led the Titans (13-18, 6-10) with 15 points. Evan Bruinsma, who finished with 12 points, scored four in a burst, pulling Detroit to 69-64 with 1:41 remaining. Matthew Grant added 13 points.
Sykes hit 5 of 8 3-pointers. Carrington Love and Greg Mays scored 11 points each for Green Bay, which finished the Horizon schedule 7-1 on the road.
