Blake Griffin exploded for 38 points on Saturday going 12-of-23 from the field and 13-of-15 from the line.
The Pistons couldn't hang on for the win in the final seconds but Griffin certainly did his part. He added six rebounds, three assists, three steals and one triple to his line. He has been a top-10 value over the last two weeks with a 30/5/6 line.

Blake Griffin took charge on Friday, scoring 32 points and adding three 3s, 11 rebounds, nine assists and a steal in a 98-93 win over the visiting Heat.
Griffin got a bit of extra usage with Andre Drummond (nasal injury) only playing seven minutes. Griffin also has five turnovers and that's been the difference in his rankings for the season: No. 36 in 9-cat and No. 20 in 8-cat. He's been a first-round play over the last two weeks in both formats so enjoy the ride as his superb season continues.

Blake Griffin willed the Pistons to a win over the Magic on Wednesday, dropping a game-high 30 points (11-of-18 shooting) with four boards, five dimes, a triple and two blocks.
Griffin scored his team's last seven points, making sure that they sealed the deal in only one extra period. He's been playing at a high level all season and aside from expected maintenance days off for rest, Griffin has been a reliable mid-round value guy.

Blake Griffin scored 19 points on 7-of-17 shooting with four rebounds, four assists, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers on Monday.
Griffin wasn't able to get his shot clicking from deep, going 3-for-11. He's clearly the most talented player on the Pistons but the pieces just don't fit well with him. The Pistons are out of the playoff picture, but they're within striking distance so you can bet that Griffin is going to do everything in his power to keep them in the hunt.

Blake Griffin exacted his revenge on the Clippers in Saturday's road win, roasting his old team for 44 points (13-of-23 FG, 5-of-13 3PT, 13-of-14 FT), eight rebounds, five assists, three steals and a block.
Griffin did major work in his 40 minutes tonight and while the revenge game narrative is a little tired and generally flimsy, there's no doubt that he had a little extra in the tank for this one. He had no words for Steve Ballmer before the game, running to the locker room as LA's owner approached for a handshake, and plenty of words for Patrick Beverley after. Griffin ended up with the ball and a clear path to the rack in the closing seconds but pulled up when Beverley turned on the jets to chase him down from behind. Thankfully cooler heads prevailed, as a big dunk would not have been worth a potential injury. The Pistons have now won the Dwane Casey Bowl and the Blake Griffin Bowl but sit just 18-23 on the year with no more revenge games left on the schedule.

Blake Griffin has returned to Saturday's game.
Looks like a false alarm on his locker room trip. He's got 35 points through three quarters so fantasy owners have to be delighted that he's back and pouring it on his old team.

Blake Griffin (rest) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Kings.
There was no word Griffin would be resting, but the Pistons are on a back-to-back. It's unclear who will start in Griffin's place. Jon Leuer, Stanley Johnson and Glenn Robinson are all likely in for a larger role, while Andre Drummonds should have all the rebounds to himself.

Blake Griffin was relatively quiet in Wednesday night's loss to the Lakers, producing a pedestrian line with 16 points on 6-of-14 shooting, adding six rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers.
It's funny how we can call it being "limited" since his 16-point game was already a team-high effort but considering he's coming off a 34-point explosion on Monday, we can get a better context of this relatively weak performance. The last time Griffin scored less than 20 points was on December 30 of last year.

Blake Griffin led all scorers in Monday's 107-119 loss to the Spurs with 34 points to go with two rebounds, two triples and eight assists.
Griffin shot the ball well, going 13-for-21 from the floor and a perfect 6-for-6 at the stripe and as usual didn't put up any defensive numbers. Point-Blake has gone well for Griffin owners as long as you know you're only getting popcorn stats with some triples sprinkled in.

Blake Griffin scored 34 points with 10 rebounds, five assists, two steals and three threes on an efficient 13-of-21 shooting from the field and 5-of-6 from the line in the 105-110 loss to the Jazz on Saturday night.
Griffin is on a scoring tear with 34 points tonight, averaging 29.5 points in his last three games. He is ranked 49th in 9-cat on the season however due to his .742 free throw shooting on 7.8 attempts per game. He is a top-25 asset in 8-cat though and ranked 38th on the season (9-cat) if you are punting free throws. He is also a good source of out-of-position assists.

Blake Griffin kept rolling on Wednesday, leading the Pistons to victory with 26 points on 11-of-23 shooting, adding eight rebounds, seven assists, two treys and two steals.
Griffin has been balling all season and has been clocking in with top-75 value over the last two weeks. He's a strong risk-reward play right now considering has not played over 65 games in a season since 2014-15.

Blake Griffin scored 29 points on 9-of-20 shooting (4-of-9 3PTs, 7-of-7 FTs) with nine rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and six turnovers in Tuesday's blowout loss to the Bucks.
We'll ignore the turnovers and appreciate the rare super-versatile line from Griffin. He has been a top 40-60 play (8/9 cat) this season and that's a little bit better than we thought he'd be.

Blake Griffin led the Pistons with his game-high 18 points (three 3s) on Friday, also adding seven boards, five dimes and seven turnovers.
It was not a pretty sight as the weaknesses of the Pistons were put on full display in this one. They lacked firepower outside of Griffin's 18-point game. Reggie Jackson has been too inconsistent all season. Tonight he was awful with eight points on 2-of-11 shooting, adding four rebounds and six dimes in 25 minutes. Griffin and Andre Drummond have been the only Pistons worth banking on and it's reflected in fantasy basketball this season as well.

Blake Griffin put up 23 points with nine rebounds in 34 minutes as the Pistons beat the Wizards on Wednesday.
He added six assists, four 3-pointers, two steals and one block to the box score as well. Griffin has regressed after his hot start to the year, but he is still clearly the best player on the court for the Pistons. He will likely end up in the top-65 on the season and would move up significantly if he brought some defensive stats to the table.
