Blake Griffin and Reggie Jackson each had 34 points Monday night, but it was Griffin’s LA Clippers that took home a 105-102 overtime road win against the Detroit Pistons.
Jackson missed a potential game-winner prior to the extra session.
BG added eleven rebounds and seven assists in the comeback victory.
Per the LA Times:
The collaborative approach worked for everyone. J.J. Redick made a three-pointer that sent the game into overtime and Jamal Crawford made another three that provided the go-ahead points for the Clippers in a wild 105-103 victory over the Detroit Pistons at the Palace of Auburn Hills.
Clippers forward Blake Griffin was the ultimate savior, eluding double teams to make the passes that led to Redick’s and Crawford’s baskets. It was as if he wanted to live up to Pistons Coach Stan Van Gundy’s pregame assertion that Griffin was “easily the best passing true big in the league.”
Griffin found a wide-open Crawford for the 25-footer that gave the Clippers a 105-102 lead with 12 seconds left in overtime. […] “I looked at Jamal and there was nobody within 10 feet,” said Griffin, who finished with 34 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists. “He did the rest.”
