Detroit: Blake Griffin scored a career-high 50 points and had the game-winner after he was fouled on a driving lay-up with 1.8 seconds left as Detroit topped Philadelphia 133-132 in a wild overtime thriller on Tuesday night.
JJ Redick’s four-point play with 5.6 seconds left in overtime set up Griffin’s dramatics, while Joel Embiid, who had 33 points and 11 rebounds, missed a potential game-winner at the buzzer.
Redick had 30 points and scored a 3-pointer while being fouled by Reggie Jackson after the Pistons point guard made two free throws to take a 130-128 lead.
Griffin faked a hand-off on the final play and drove the lane for the basket, getting fouled by Robert Covington. He made the ensuing free throw for the win. (AP)
