A highlight of post game tonight: Giannis was wearing a powder pink Nike Tech Fleece sweatsuit and as he was walking up to the podium, he got on his tiptoes and sang the Pink Panther song.

Giannis said that any frustration he showed during the game came from his body hurting. He said he thinks Mike Budenholzer has done a good job limiting his minutes.

Before the game, Dwane Casey stressed the importance of a strong first quarter for the Pistons. In Game 1, the Pistons trailed by 20 after one. In game 2 today, the Pistons trail by just 11. Shooting just 5-of-16 from 3 is hurting them.

Dwane Casey says a decision hasn't been made on whether or not Blake Griffin is a go for Game 2 against the Bucks. Casey says the medical staff will evaluate him between now and tip off. "I want him to play, Blake wants to play, but it's about how his body feels," Casey said.
