On Friday February 9, the LA Clippers arrive at the Little Caesars Arena to face the host Detroit Pistons Entering the game the Clippers are on a two game win streak having beat the Bulls and Dallas. Conversely, the Pistons are on a major win streak of five games in a row with the most recent being a win over the Nets.
Last season, the teams split the season series and the Clippers took the initial game this season. The Pistons hold the all-time record having bested the Clippers in 71 of their 114 matches.
They say every game in the 82 has exactly the same value as any other. But, to not recognize certain games possess more emotional emphasis than others would be naive.
This is one of those games as the former team of Blake Griffin faces their former super star. Although plenty of fodder was given to DeAndre Jordan and Lou Williams likely be shopped and traded neither occurred as both players remain in LA.
The other narrative was many expected Avery Bradley may get moved, but like Jordan and Williams he remains in LA.
Entering the day the Clippers still have copious players on the injured reserve list. Milos Teodosic (foot), Austin Rivers (achilles), Jawun Evans (abdominal strain) and C.J. Williams (ankle) have all been nursing injuries.
Of those Rivers is aiming to return Friday vs. the Pistons while the others remain questionable.
For Blake Griffin this game carries much more value than simply adding another win. This is the team he was drafted by and spent his entire career with prior to his trade to Detroit.
The fact Griffin wasn’t even informed by management, but found out via social media is likely to have left him with the desire to not just win but also show the Clippers what they gave up.
The reality is this move has paid immediate dividends for Detroit who hasn’t lost since the trade. DeAndre Jordan is beasting games since Griffin’s arrival.
Jameer Nelson rejoins his former coach in a low key trade move which may end up in hindsight being viewed as the smartest trade deadline move. Dwight Buycks (illness) has missed three games. Both Nelson who must pass his physical and Buycks are questionable to play in this match.
