Blake Griffin to take a breather for Clippers versus Cavaliers in second half of back-to-back
Detroit Pistons forward/center Blake Griffin will rest against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday.
The Pistons are 7.0-point road favorites on the second half of a back-to-back set, so they opted to give Griffin his third breather of the season. Andre Drummond figures to be asked to do more work on offense while Jon Leuer or Thon Maker could be in line for a start. Luke Kennard only attempted one shot on Sunday, but he tends to see the biggest boost when Griffin is unavailable.
Griffin is averaging 41.6 FanDuel points in 67 games this season, with 24.7 points, 7.6 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 0.7 steals, and 2.5 triples per contest.
