Pistons survive Blake Griffin's ejection, top Hawks 125-122
ATLANTA (AP) - Thon Maker sank a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 16.7 seconds remaining and the Detroit Pistons overcame Blake Griffin's ejection to beat the Atlanta Hawks 125-122 on Friday night. Reggie Jackson scored a season-high 32 points. Andre Drummond had 26 points and 21 rebounds, but the Pistons struggled to overcome Griffin's third-quarter exit following his second technical foul of the period. Griffin drew his first technical following a brief battle for the ball with Dewayne Dedmon. Then, after hitting a 3-pointer less than a minute later, Griffin yelled at the Hawks bench and was called for his second technical, apparently for taunting, with 4:19 remaining in the period.
