Blake Griffin scored 15 points (6-17 FGA, 3-3 FTA) with seven rebounds, seven assists and a steal during the Clippers' 104-98 win over the Pistons on Wednesday.
There was good news and bad in another disappointing night for Griffin, who many saw as a dark horse MVP candidate coming into the year. The good news is 11 of his 17 shots came at the basket, important for a player who was among the league's most prolific finishers last year but has taken over half his shots from midrange this season. The bad news is he only made five of those shots, exacerbating what was already an eight percent drop in his shooting at the rim this season. Griffin's owners will have to hope he starts playing like his old self sooner rather than later, as selling low on a first round pick isn't an option.
