Two nights after scoring six points against the Hawks in a 15-point victory, Griffin scored 10 points on 4-for-16 shooting. He was frustrated with the refs’ calls, as a result, he got ejected out of the game he will look to bounce back against the Raptors. Andre Drummond had his fifth 20-20 game of the season with 23 points and 22 rebounds but they had no answer for Walker in this game as he scored 24 points on the night. Reggie Bullock scored a career-high 23 points on 6-for-9 shooting from 3-point range.

Reggie Jackson scored 19 points as he is looking to bounce back after a bad shooting night.
