Pistons' Griffin likely out all series

Pistons' Griffin likely out all series

Still, this result wasn't just about the Pistons' comparatively lesser talent, or a truly terrible performance from them to open the series, but the startlingly ruthless efficiency the Bucks showed in tearing them apart.

A hobbled Blake Griffin, who willed the Detroit Pistons into the playoffs on an injured knee is likely to miss the team's entire first-round series, Vincent Goodwill of Yahoo Sports writes. Without Blake Griffin, as evidenced by the outcome of Game 1 on Sunday, the Pistons' will be lucky to keep any of the games within double digits.

Griffin has been dealing with a left knee injury for several weeks and miss the Pistons' season finale against the New York Knicks.

According to Goodwill, Griffin does not have structural damage in his knee and it remains unclear if he will require any type of minor procedure during the offseaosn. His team made a huge jump in every possible respect from last season; their win total went from 44 to 60, they have the no. 1 ranked defense after finishing 15th last season, and their offense is statistically the best in the league, an improvement from their middle-of-the-road status last season.

Griffin has been the catalyst for the Pistons making the playoffs for only the second time in the last decade, and he's stayed largely healthy until this injury.

During the season, Griffin appeared in 75 games for the Pistons and averaged 24.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 5.4 assists per performance while shooting 36.2 percent from long distance. He was acquired in a trade with the Los Angeles Clippers in January 2018.
