Blake Griffin made 7-of-12 from the field for 21 points during a 111-102 win over the Cavs on Monday, adding 12 rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block, five turnovers and two 3-pointers.
Advice: The Cavs doubled Griffin a whole lot in this win, which explains the low usage. Griffin's scoring is down this month after a red-hot October with 27.3 points per game, and his 3-pointers have expected dropped at just 23.7% from deep in his previous November games. He's also turned the ball over 10 times in the last two games, which has also dropped him out of the top 35 in nine-category leagues. He'll likely be around 30-50 going forward.

Blake Griffin filled it up during a 106-104 victory in Toronto on Wednesday, scoring 30 points with 12 rebounds, three assists, three steals, two blocks, five turnovers and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes.
Advice: It was easily the biggest win of the season with the Pistons winning the fourth 29-16. Griffin wasn't a big part of the strong finish with only two points in the fourth, making just 1-of-5 in the frame. He was coming off two of his worst games of the year with just 8.0 points per game and he had made just 38.8% from the field in his previous games this month, so his fantasy owners can breathe a sigh of relief. He'll have plenty of big lines the rest of the way.

Blake Griffin was ejected after picking up a Flagrant-2 foul on Sunday.
Advice: Griffin leaned into a screen on a driving Malik Monk, who was already airborne, so the Flagrant-2 was completely justified; although he shouldn't receive any further punishment. Griffin didn't play very well at all, finishing the game with just 10 points (4-of-16 FGs, 2-of-3 FTs), six rebounds, five assists, one block and three turnovers in 30 minutes, making this his second lame game in a row. He'll look to bounce back on Wednesday vs. Toronto.
