The Greek Freak put Blake Griffin on a poster earlier this month, dunking on him with disrespect in a Bucks win over the Pistons. On Monday night Griffin returned the favor. 

Unfortunately for Griffin and the Pistons, the Bucks walked away winners again, this time 107-104. 

Griffin finished with 19 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds for his first triple-double of the season, but also committed 10 turnovers. He gave the ball away four times in the final five minutes, and pinned the loss on himself. 

"I was unbelievably awful tonight. I thought we had a chance to tie it despite everything that I did. We’re not going to win games if I have 10 turnovers and make the poor decisions like I did down the stretch. I just feel bad for these guys because they played so hard and got us back in the game, and I wasn't there for them tonight," Griffin said. 

Giannis Antetokounmpo poured in 32 points on 15-21 shooting, to go along with 12 rebounds and five assists. He had a quieter game against the Pistons two weeks ago, though his dunk over Griffin is still reverberating. 

Milwaukee, the second-place team in the East at 20-9, is 2-0 against Detroit this season. The clubs meet two more times, including on New Year's Day.
