NBA 2018-19: 3 Talking points from Detroit Pistons vs Atlanta Hawks
#2 The Pistons seem to be okay without Griffin too
Detroit Pistons this season are being powered by some superb performances from their star player, Blake Griffin. Griffin has been so good that he returned to the All-Star scene once again this year, wowing not just the fans in Detroit, but people all over the world.
He is averaging a career-high 26.1 points per game, along with 8 rebounds and 5.3 assists too. He's also shooting the 3-point shot really well and that has changed the teams have had to defend Griffin this season.
Against the Hawks, though, he was ejected after just 23 minutes. The duo of Reggie Jackson, who scored 32 points, and Andre Drummond, who had 26 tonight, showed that the Pistons are still a capable team without Griffin, powering their side to a victory.
