DETROIT -- Make it 3-0 with Blake Griffin.

And the Detroit Pistons made it look easy Monday night.

The Pistons (26-26) slowly took control in the second half to take a 111-91 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers at Little Caesars Arena.

They have won four straight on this six-game home stand since acquiring Griffin from the Los Angeles Clippers a week ago.

And Griffin was solid with 21 points, nine rebounds and six assists.

But it was a team effort with six Pistons in double figures.
