MFSJ. That’s monthly skiing Stanley Johnson, for those who are uninitiated.

With the game on the line, Stanley Johnson was willing to get aggressive on offense. Stanley hit a pair of big buckets, including an and-one, to seal the game for the Pistons.

It was another tight one, but the Pistons won their third straight game.

Blake Griffin didn’t paint as sterling of a picture as in his opener, shooting 6-19 from the field. But most of those misses were from the perimeter, putting up a 1-6 spot from three. Most importantly, he had the best reaction of the game.

Ish Smith was quietly a star throughout the game, finishing with 25 points on 11-14 shooting and 7 assists. Andre Drummond was also excellent, despite a few unfortunate shot and pass decisions, posting 23 points, 20 rebounds, 4 blocks, and 4 steals.

The Pistons are undefeated since the Blake Griffin trade. They’ll look to keep it going on Monday hosting the Trail Blazers.
