Brooklyn Nets vs. Detroit Pistons
This is the second game of a back-to-back for both the Brooklyn Nets and Detroit Pistons.
The Detroit Pistons aren’t a contender, but at the same time, they haven’t officially been eliminated from the playoffs. They were so desperate to make the playoffs this year that they traded for Blake Griffin.
The Mythological Creature Known As The Griffin
Blake Griffin is currently injured, but even prior to the injury he wasn’t the savior of this Pistons team they thought he would be. He was once referred to a superstar and easily ranked as a top 10 player in the NBA. That hasn’t been the case for a few years now. Prior to the trade Pistons were 4th in three-point percentage and 19th in rebounds per game. Since the trade, the Pistons are 21st in three-point percentage and 5th in rebounds per game.
