Pistons to rest Griffin, Rose vs. Hawks, opening minutes for young roster
(Photo by Rob Carr/Getty Images)Pistons fans will likely see more of rookie point guard Killian Hayes on Monday night vs. the Atlanta Hawks as the team rests its two veteran stars. Blake Griffin and Derrick Rose will both sit out Monday’s game after logging heavy minutes in a double-overtime loss against Cleveland on Saturday. Pistons will look a little different tonight with Blake Griffin (injury management) & Derrick Rose (rest) out after heavy minutes in 2OT opener Saturday. — Keith Langlois (@Keith_Langlois) December 28, 2020Griffin played 44 minutes, scoring 26 points, while Rose played 33 minutes, scoring 13 points.
