No Blake Griffin and no Josh Jackson tonight:
This continues the pattern of more aggressive injury management for Blake Griffin. Unfortunately... the extra rest hasn’t made Blake look any more explosive on the court.
At The Athletic, James Edwards III talked to Harvey Grant (Jerami Grant’s dad) about Jerami being ready for a larger role.
Over at the Detroit Free Press, Omari Sankofa wrote about Svi Mykhailiuk stepping up after Josh Jackson went down. Don’t have to get ready if you stay ready.
As for the Bucks, Eric Nehm at The Athletic has an examination of how they managed to set the NBA record for most threes made in a game against the Miami Heat last week. Hey, at least that probably won’t happen to the Pistons tonight, right?
Enjoy the game, everyone.
