Pistons, Blake Griffin Down Grizzlies, 104-102

The Detroit Pistons chapter of Blake Griffin's National Basketball Association career is off to a promising start.

Despite the hilarious mishap to start the second half, Griffin delivered an impressive performance in his Pistons debut, finishing with 24 points, 10 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 blocks.

Note the way Griffin just went right on back to the interview after all that. Griffin also drained 11 of his 13 free-throw attempts.

Jimmy Butler's 28 points and Karl-Anthony Towns' 24 saw the Minnesota Timberwolves win 108-89 against the Milwaukee Bucks.

Blake Griffin to Andre Drummond. get used to it.

Drummond was one of six Pistons to score in double digits, joining Griffin, Reggie Bullock (15 points), Stanley Johnson (14), Ish Smith (12) and Dwight Buycks (12) on the night.

Grizzlies forward Wayne Selden scored just seven points on two-of-nine shooting with more turnovers (three) than field goals made in Memphis' loss to the Pistons.

Before Blake Griffin even stepped off a plane on a chilly, Metro Detroit runway this week, and before he put on a Pistons uniform for the first time Wednesday, hundreds - if not thousands - of Pistons fans put on his jersey first. Griffin is expected to instantly jump in as the Pistons' top option offensively, which should be similar to his previous role in Los Angeles.
