Detroit’s five-game winning streak since acquiring Blake Griffin ended on Friday night at the Palace. Griffin’s former team, the Clippers, came into Motown and beat the Pistons with a dominant fourth quarter.
Griffin stormed off the court and immediately into the tunnel after the game. He said it was no big deal after the game and that he didn’t know his teammates very well anyway since they were almost all new.
But Griffin definitely played harder and chipper than he does normally and it was because he wanted to beat his former team badly. No such luck. The Pistons dropped back down to .500 and out of a tie for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
Detroit is going be very hard-pressed to get into the playoffs, even just a game back and with any number of teams it can catch to qualify.
The Pistons are only a game back of the Heat in the loss column and two back of Philly and Indiana but all three of those teams are better than Detroit, full stop. The Pistons are short of depth, though Reggie Jackson’s return will help.
Jackson won’t come back before the All-Star Break next week but he should return soon after that. Reports are saying early March and the Pistons don’t have many more games until then with the week off.
Atlanta hosted Cleveland on Friday night after the Cavaliers traded six players and didn’t have the four they received in return available.
It didn’t matter. LeBron James had his second triple-double of the week and tied a career-high with 17 assists. Kyle Korver went bonkers from three and Cedric Osman scored 17 in his first career start.
I think the Cavaliers are poised for an interesting final 30 games and probably a lot of success in the playoffs after their moves at the deadline but this game concerns Atlanta.
The Hawks waived Marco Bellineli, who will add some scoring punch to some contender’s bench.
Two losses in a row have dropped the Hawks back into the desired position of worst record in the NBA. Orlando has won three straight and both the Kings and Mavs have the same 17 wins, but with fewer losses.

Free Detroit Pistons vs. Atlanta Hawks NBA Prediction: Detroit wins but I wouldn’t bet on it.
Atlanta is competent at home and I just don’t trust Detoit long-term. That said, I don’t see much value either way in this game.
