Report: Ex-Cavs GM Griffin interviews for Pelicans' vacancy Former Cleveland Cavaliers general manager David Griffin interviewed with the New Orleans Pelicans for their front-office opening on Thursday, a source told Marc Stein of The New York Times. Griffin served as Cleveland's vice president of basketball operations before becoming its general manager in 2014. He and team owner Dan Gilbert agreed not to renew his deal in 2017 after failing to come to a resolution on an extension. New Orleans parted ways with general manager Dell Demps in February after the mismanagement of Anthony Davis' trade request, naming Danny Ferry as Demps' interim replacement. Ferry is reportedly among the candidates to become the full-time GM.

Blake Griffin has generated the most surprising stat of the 2019 NBA playoffs.

Despite not playing in a game yet this postseason due to a knee injury, Griffin has been called for two technical fouls in the Detroit Pistons’ first-round series with the Milwaukee Bucks while sitting on the bench.

Griffin was called for a technical foul in Game 1 of the series on Sunday. He was called for another tech in Game 2 after complaining about the referees.

The two technical fouls in two games ties Griffin with Kevin Durant and Patrick Beverley for the NBA postseason lead. Seven technical fouls accumulated in a single postseason triggers a suspension. Given the way the series has gone for Detroit, Griffin might not even have the opportunity to be suspended if his team gets swept.

The Pistons lost Game 1 by 35 points and fell in Game 2 by 21. They head home to Detroit for Game 3 on Saturday.

Pistons set NBA record for longest playoff losing streak.
The Detroit Pistons made NBA history on Monday night - for all the wrong reasons. Falling 127-104 to the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 4 of their first-round series, the Pistons were not only eliminated from the playoffs in a clean sweep but also took possession of the Association's longest postseason losing streak of all time at 14 games. Detroit's skid began in Game 5 of the 2008 Eastern Conference finals and continued with a pair of sweeps courtesy of the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2009 and 2016. Detroit tied the New York Knicks' record of 13 games (2001-12) on Saturday with a 119-103 blowout loss in Game 3.
