Griffin, Smith lead Pistons over Bulls 118-116

CHICAGO (AP) Blake Griffin was having a big game and he had just hit a key 3-pointer on his previous attempt.

Still, the perennial All-Star had no problem deferring to a reserve for a potential game-winning shot Saturday night.

Griffin had 33 points and 12 rebounds, Ish Smith scored all 15 of his points in the second half, including the decisive basket, and the Detroit Pistons beat the Bulls 118-116 in Chicago's home opener.
