Griffin scores 37, Pistons hold off Pelicans 98-94

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Blake Griffin got Detroit off to a hot start, but the Pistons still had to scratch out a victory in the final seconds over the Anthony Davis-less Pelicans.

It didn't sit well with the All-Star forward.

"The way we finished the game was the reason we've lost so many close games," said Griffin, referring to Detroit's 95-87 lead with 1:32 left that nearly evaporated down the stretch. "This time we just happened to come out on top. We got a lucky miss, a lucky bounce and we were able to get a wide-open dunk, but this doesn't feel like that good of a win. Obviously, we'll take it, but stuff like this is why we've lost so many games."
