MUST SEE: Detroit Pistons move to 3-0 as Blake Griffin drops 50!

Published

on

The Detroit Pistons are now 3-0 after a 133-132 overtime victory over the visiting Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night at the LCA. Blake Griffin led the charge as he had a career night dropping 50 points, grabbing 14 rebounds and adding 6 assists. Griffin was 20 of 35 from the field including 5 of 10 from beyond the arc. He even scored the game-winner as he drove to the hoop with 1.8 seconds left in OT.

Here are some highlights that show exactly what kind of night Blake had.

Starting C Andre Drummond was ejected after receiving his 2nd technical late in regulation. Reggie Jackson added 25 points and backup PG Ish Smith added 21 points off the bench.

The Detroit Pistons are now a combined 6-1 when Griffin, PG Reggie Jackson, and C Andre Drummond start together dating back to last season. If the star-studded trio can stay healthy, this may be a very exciting year for the team, new HC Dwayne Casey and Pistons fans.

Predicting the winner of the Detroit Lions final 10 games

On Sunday, the Detroit Lions dealt with the heat just fine as they went on the road and defeated the Miami Dolphins 32-21.

With the victory, the Lions are now 3-3 and within striking distance of first place in the NFC North.

Looking ahead, the schedule looks a bit demanding and depending on whether or not they can navigate the storm will dictate if the Lions can make run at the NFC North crown.

So, without further ado, let’s take a look a how I believe the Lions final 10 games will go.

(W) WEEK 8 – vs. Seattle Seahawks

Russell Wilson is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL and he will likely have a big game against the Lions defense. That being said, the Seahawks are no longer a defensive powerhouse and Matthew Stafford will be slinging it around in this game as the Lions move to 4-3.

Lions 31 Seahawks 27

Casey: Griffin trying to convince medical staff he can play

Published

on

The report that Detroit Pistons fans were dreading came out this morning – star forward Blake Griffin is likely to miss the entire first round of the playoffs against the Milwaukee Bucks. Of course, that comes on the heels of a Game 1 blowout loss to the Bucks in which the team was thoroughly embarrassed in nearly every facet.

Despite this, according to Pistons writer Keith Langlois, Griffin still wants to be out on the floor despite a nagging knee injury.

“If it was my decision, I would’ve played,” Griffin told ESPN after Game 1.

Things went from bad to worse for the Detroit Pistons.

Already overwhelmed by the relentless attack of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Eric Bledsoe, center Andre Drummond took out his frustration on Giannis Antetokounmpo, shoving the Greek Freak to the floor as he was going for a layup.

Drummond was hit with a flagrant-2 foul and thrown from the game. Additionally, the inactive Blake Griffin was given a technical for arguing the call.

Pistons beat writer Rod Beard had this observation:

Ouch.

Andre Drummond responds to fan on Twitter

It was an ugly scene at Little Caesars Arena during the first half of Tuesday night’s game between the Detroit Pistons and Memphis Grizzlies. The fact that Memphis was missing eight regulars from their lineup didn’t stop the players on the floor from building a staggering 22 point lead over Detroit, leading to a chorus of boos from the fans in attendance.

However, the Pistons were able to mount a comeback for a dramatic 100-93 victory to inch closer to the Eastern Conference’s playoff spot. Pistons center Andre Drummond had himself a good second half, with a renewed effort on the defensive end.

“I made a decision to start trapping in the second half,” Drummond explained. “I told (assistant) coach Sweeney – ‘I think we need to blitz them and make them speed up the game a little…..we made them play our game, we made them pick the pace up and they weren’t ready for it.”

LOOK: Pistons’ Andre Drummond gets bent out of shape following tweet by Fox 2 reporter

NBA: Minnesota Timberwolves at Detroit Pistons

The Detroit Pistons were easily handled on Sunday by the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals. This does not come as much of a surprise as the Pistons were without their best player, Blake Griffin, and they were playing against a Bucks team that led the entire NBA in wins.

Late in the game Pistons’ center Andre Drummond was ejected after shoving Giannis Antetokounmpo and being assessed a Flagrant 2 foul.

When Drummond was asked about how tough it was not to be able to finish the game because of his Flagrant 2, he replied, “I got to shower early.”

As you can see from above Jennifer Hammond of Fox 2 tweeted out Drummond’s comment, which she has every right to do. (In fact, it is part of her job)

Well, when Drummond caught wind of Hammond tweeting out WHAT HE SAID, he was clearly offended.

“See you Wednesday, Jennifer… have the same energy. I’ve been good to you my whole career and you want to turn the knife when we as a team is having a rough night! All good, @DetroitPistons we aren’t dead it’s only game one, let’s turn things around on Wednesday!”

Jennifer Hammond is a class act and she has always been a class act. If Andre Drummond does not want his comments to be reported, then he needs to refrain from saying them. Or at least, choose his words wisely.
