Blake Griffin has the most surprising stat of the playoffs

Blake Griffin Pistons

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.
