Detroit Pistons vs LA Clippers (By: FairPlayBet)
I am not too big fan of these players performance bets. Cause much could go wrong, either some early penalty trouble so your player to be much less minutes on the court than usual, either we could see early decided game so again your your guy on the bench during fourth quarter. But, here today in game between Pistons and Clippers IMO this won't happen. There are reasons for me to believe Blake Griffin will have huge game and will cover this line.
Firstly, of course he will be highly motivated in the first game against his former team. When you are so long in one franchize and everyone consider you as a best player of that team, and then you are been traded, well surely it's not easy to accept it. Definitely it was not too friendly break up between Griffin and the Clippers.
Furthermore, seems this should be very tied game. Thus, probably even more minutes for Griffin than usual.
Also, I'm not afraid of penalty trouble for Griffin. Namely, situation in the Pistons' roster is far from ideal right now so wanted or not, they must depends much on Blake Griffin at this point.
His stats during the season:
22.6 points per game and 7.9 rebounds pet game (34.5 minutes per game) in 33 games played for the Clippers .
Since he moved to Detroit, 4 games with average of 33.8 minutes and 21.5 points and 7.8 rebounds per game. So, his numbers slightly slashed but it's normal given in such cases, the player in question surely needs some time to fit and get used on new teammates. He will be better, no doubt about that. After all, his best game in Pistons' jersey was exactly the last one when he scored 25 against Nets. With above mentioned huge motivation for Griffin, I would not be surprised if he achieve tonight his first 30+ game for Detroit.
I will stick with points although probably points + rebounds (over 33) is not bad choice either.
