125: 109! !! !! The 76ers beat the Pistons away. The team had two consecutive victories. The 76ers' best performers in this game were Harris and Simmons. Harris scored 35 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals. Simmons had 16 points, 13 rebounds and 17 assists. The Pistons' recent record is not ideal. They have suffered a five-game losing streak. At present they have a record of 11 wins and 20 losses, ranking 11th in the Eastern Conference. Such a result is really unacceptable for the Pistons. The top 6 in the Eastern Conference Division this season is still very strong, but the Pistons have at least a chance to reach the top 8. I didn't expect them to behave so badly. What are the main reasons for the decline of the Pistons?
Let's take a look at the statistics of the Pistons' main players. It is not difficult to find that Griffin's performance is not ideal. He started the game in 27 minutes. He only made 2 of 14 shots and only scored 8 points. His plus-minus on the court is -19, the lowest on the team. Griffin's form this season is very poor, his performance has made the outside world surprised. Why did he behave so badly? Remember Griffin last season? Griffin was a big killer on the court last season, and the outside world thought he was back to the top. And last season, Griffin was also selected in the league's All-Star Game and best team.
It stands to reason that after a summer of cultivation, Griffin should have been better. Why his strength has fallen so clearly this season. It all has to be said from the playoffs last season. In last season's playoff series against the Bucks, the Pistons had no hope of defeating their opponents. Unfortunately, Griffin made a closed shot and forced a comeback. This return did not change the fate of the Pistons, and the team was eventually eliminated. But Griffin played closed shots in the game, but this move had a profound impact on his condition, and his athleticism was far worse than before. This season, his decline in strength is already visible to the naked eye.
I have to sigh, Griffin is also stupid. He pitted himself. Recalling Ibaka, he also played closed shots to participate in the game. In the end, he also suffered a large price for this move. Fortunately, he has succeeded in the Raptors and won the NBA championship. What about Griffin? Don't know what will happen to him in the future?
