Monday, January 14 finds the Detroit Pistons facing the. Utah Jazz as they meet for the second time in the 2018-19 regular season. Both squads last played Saturday with the Pistons winning against the Clippers and the Jazz triumphing over the Bulls.
The Jazz has swept the Pistons in each of the last two seasons and won the initial game this year. The Jazz holds the all-time record having bested the Pistons in 62 of their 97 matches.
The Pistons arrived in LA on a four-game losing streak, losers of 16 of their last 19 games and sporting a 6-13 road record.
Playing against the team he spent his first eight seasons with Blake Griffin made it known from the warmup this was not going to be an amicable game. LA Clippers owner (Steve Ballmer) offered to shake his hand and Griffin rebuffed him.
Griffin channeled his angst to score 44 points in the 109-104 victory much to the former Clippers delight.
Andre Drummond delivered a huge double-double (20 points and 21 rebounds) proving too much for the undersized Montrezl Harrell to handle.
It’s a tale of two Reggie’s in Detroit as Jackson hasn’t lived up to expectations but Bullock has proven to fit well with Griffin and Drummond with his two, end of game triples sealing the victory for Detroit.
Ish Smith (right adductor muscle tear) is questionable, Henry Ellenson (ankle) is out until month end and Zaza Pachulia (lower-leg contusion) is out indefinitely.
With Utah lacking depth at the point guard position, Donovan Mitchell had extra pressure to deliver versus Chicago. Recently Mitchell has regained his scoring touch which he continued vs. Chicago via a team high 34 points plus 6 assists and 6 rebounds.
Utah center Rudy Gobert came two assists shy of a triple-double (15 points, 16 rebounds, eight assists).
But the story of the night and man of the hour was Kyle Korver who replicated what Steph Curry did earlier this week by moving past Jason Terry for All-Time NBA 3-point shots made (4th).
Korver connected on half of his attempts (4-8) needing 276 to catch Reggie Miller and 689 to tie Ray Allen. Since Curry is still active it’s unlikely the 37 year old Korver will finish ahead of the Dubs sniper. Curry surpass him as he still has years to play while Korver is 37 in his 16th season.
Injuries will keep six Jazz from participating Monday. Raul Neto, Ricky Rubio and Thabo Sefolosha all with groin issues, Dante Exum and Grayson Allen (ankles) and Tony Bradley (knee).
