Blake Griffin forgets his jersey, misses start of second half in Pistons debut (video)

DETROIT – Blake Griffin’s Pistons debut went well. He had 24 points, 10 rebounds and five assists. Detroit outscored the Grizzlies by 23 with him on the court in a 104-102 win.

The only snag came to start the second half.

Griffin removed his warmups – only to realize he forgot to put back on his jersey in the locker room. He spent the first 14 seconds of the third quarter standing on the sideline in his undershirt while someone fetched his jersey.

“I’m just going to blame it on a new environment,” Griffin said. “My track record, I’ve never done that before.

“I went to go take my shirt off, and I was like, ‘Something doesn’t feel right.’ And I pulled it off, and I saw that I only had my undershirt on. I just – I don’t know. I just wanted Anthony Tolliver to get a stop for me.”
