Blake Griffin will remain out of the Detroit Pistons’ lineup as the two sides try to work on a resolution to his situation, as he wants to play for a contender and the Pistons are focusing on the development of their young players.

Boston struggled as a result, going 3-for-17 from three in the first half and 9-for-35 (25.7%) for the game. The Wizards' problems shooting their own threes did continue, however, as they went 7-for-30 from long range.
"There's a lot of unknown because we're inconsistent," Stevens said of the Celtics' effort against the Pistons and through 25 games on the season. "I think if we were more consistent as a team, there'd be a lot more known. I think we're capable, but -- I think I've told you all this before -- there's a big difference between being consistent and being capable in this league."

Golden State Warriors: It appears Draymond Green is taking this whole Magic Johnson thing seriously. Over the last two weeks, Green is the NBA's leader with 12.3 APG. His eight assists against Brooklyn on Saturday snapped a streak of five straight games with double-digit assists, but on Monday Green matched a career-high with 16 assists in a blowout win over Cleveland. Green has also averaged an impressive 1.6 BPG and 1.8 SPG in seven games this month, but be aware -- James Wiseman could return to the lineup in the coming days, which likely cuts into Green's minutes.
