Inside The Cylinder ep. 98: The Blake Griffin conundrum

And Killian Hayes news!

NBA: Detroit Pistons at Utah Jazz Jeffrey Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

In this week’s episode, Matt and I get things going by breaking down the Detroit Pistons collapse against the Atlanta Hawks. Even though this year is all about the TANK, watching the Pistons cough up a 17-point lead in the fourth quarter is still hard on the eyes.

One highlight from the game was Jerami Grant’s 32 point performance; which was somehow quiet yet destructive all at once - I’ll break down that concept further. A lowlight includes the Hawks’ bigs absolutely abusing Detroit’s front-court, more on that from Matt.

And, as the the title signals, we finally have a long-form discussion regarding Blake Griffin. How should Detroit utilize him moving forward? What does the future hold for Griffin? We’ll take a deeper dive on those questions.

Additional topics include

  • Killian Hayes’ rehab strategy
  • Possible trade chips and trade partners

All that and more in this week’s episode!
