Rebounds? Check. Assists? Check. Jersey? Ummm….
Aside from a minor wardrobe mishap, Blake Griffin rocked his debut on February 1st with the Detroit Pistons, who claimed a 104 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies. The star was traded earlier this week from the LA Clippers, and may still be acclimating to his new environment after forgetting his jersey at the beginning of the second-half.

However, Griffin still managed to deliver a great performance scoring 24 points and 10 rebounds with an additional 5 assists. He also showed off his growing chemistry with teammates Anthony Tolliver and Andre Drummond, who welcomed the All-Star forward warmly.

This is an interesting development for Detroit (24-26) going into their next few games at Little Caesar’s Arena. As the Pistons expand their playbook with Griffin, they will continue to reap the benefits of their recent trade.
