The Pistons beat the Pelicans last night, but not before letting an eight-point lead dwindle to three with about a minute left.
Blake Griffin in his on-court interview on Fox Sports Detroit:
This is nothing to be proud of, man. This is just masking our issue. You know what I mean? We’ve got to lock in and finish games. Our lack of focus at the end of games has been awful, and that’s why we lose games like this. So, I’m happy with the win, but I’m not necessarily happy with how we closed this game out.
That’s when Pistons point guard Reggie Jackson stepped in front of the camera to pose playfully.
Jackson played relatively well against New Orleans. His 17 points were his most in three weeks. It’s perfectly fine for him to enjoy the win more than Griffin did.
But Jackson’s antics opposite Griffin’s frustration created a heck of a dichotomous scene.
