It was a bit of an off night for Griffin, who scored 19 points but shot 7 of 19 from the field. The whole Detroit team faded down the stretch. The Pistons led 80-77 after three quarters but scored only 15 points in the fourth.
Detroit had won five in a row, with Griffin playing in four of those games.
Austin Rivers scored 16 points for Los Angeles in his first game back from a right ankle injury.
Bradley and especially Harris received ovations from the Detroit crowd when they were introduced in the starting lineup, but when the teams came out for the opening tip, there wasn’t anything too unusual in terms of pregame greetings. In fact, Griffin and Bradley were hit with simultaneous technical fouls in the first quarter after battling for rebounding position.
After the game, Griffin headed straight toward the locker room and did not stick around to commiserate on the court.
