Former coach: Patricia has the passion, work ethic for the job

Detroit had 36 assists on 44 field goals and had six players with at least 12 points.

Thinking back to those four years Patricia spent busting his butt to become a better player, and that 1996 season on his coaching staff, King told he knew right away Patricia would have a knack for coaching if that's what he chose to do.

Both Patricia and McDaniels were rumoured to become head coaches for quite a while. Tolliver's minutes have dropped from where they were when the Pistons were waiting for Blake Griffin to arrive, but he' still getting about 26 of them a night.

"When we're playing (together), he draws a lot of attention", Kennard said of Griffin. He still led Detroit in scoring Monday, but the Pistons had plenty of threats. "Once guys get confident and get to making shots, it's hard to stop".

If you want to see what Griffin brings to this roster, this play sums it up: He grabs the board, brings the ball up himself, and sees Andre Drummond (the NBA Player of the Week in the East) running the floor and hits him with an alley-oop.

During the past six seasons, he has served as the team's defensive coordinator.

Portland entered halftime trailing, 49-43.

A handful of other Pistons also reached double figures.

And the Pistons, who after going 3-12 from December 27 after Reggie Jackson was hurt the previous night through January 28 with the NBA's No. 28-ranked offense, have been both the league's No. 7 offense and defense over their 4-0 run to pull themselves back to.500.

Detroit was never seriously threatened in the fourth, and the game ended with several seldom-used reserves on the court.

Portland finished the quarter with a 10-4 spurt, including five points from Lillard, to make it 79-67 heading into the fourth.

Pistons: Dwight Buycks (illness) missed the game.
