Griffin puts on show as Pistons down the 76ers

Power forward Blake Griffin drives in on 76ers' center Joel Embiid.

The Philadelphia 76ers came to Little Caesars Arena to face the Detroit Pistons, a team the 76ers do well against.

Between the two teams, the players to watch tend to be Joel Embiid of the 76ers facing the Piston’s Andre Drummond as they have a history of trash talk.

However, last night Griffin reminded not only the crowd, but the NBA as well that he is still an All-Star.

Griffin had a career night with 50 points, the most in his career and became the sixth player to do so in Detroit history, the last being Rip Hamilton when he scored 51 points in 2006.

Griffin had 49 points when he faked a pass at the top of the arc then drove in a layup that drew a foul and tied the game at 132. His 50th point came from a free throw that put the Pistons up by one with 1.8 seconds left.

The 76ers took one more shot but missed, ending the game at 133-132, sending the Pistons to 3-0 for the second time in the last decade.

Griffin is the first player this season to have a 50 point game.
