Wednesday night was the wrong time to provoke Blake Griffin. His team had lost seven of its last eight games and Griffin was battling the flu. He was in a mood, a mood that propelled the Pistons to a 129-123 overtime win over the Timberwolves on the road. 

Toward the end of OT, a Timberwolves fan appeared to talk some trash to Griffin. Griffin wasn't having it. 

He strode toward the baseline by the Pistons bench and, in no uncertain terms, asked the fan to repeat himself. Zaza Pachulia intervened before Griffin could go any further, and then the rest of bench got involved. 

Dwane Casey settled things down by calling his players into the huddle, before the Pistons finished off the final 14 seconds of a much-needed win. 

Per the TV broadcast, the fan who crossed the line was escorted out of the arena. 

Griffin, who didn't take part in Detroit's shootaround Wednesday morning because of his illness, was a big part of the win. He scored 34 points, including 18 in the fourth quarter and overtime. 

The Pistons entered the fourth down by 14.

Andre Drummond hit a couple huge buckets, one a putback with 0.6 seconds left in regulation to tie the game, the other a stepback three in OT to put the Pistons up for good.
