Pistons focus on facing Celtics, better utilizing Griffin

Stan Van Gundy spent a good portion of the NBA All-Star break watching film. He wasn't catching up on the movies nominated for Oscars next month.

Rather, the Detroit Pistons coach was trying to figure out ways to maximize his team's offensive potential with the addition of Blake Griffin. The team had virtually no practice time after acquiring one of the league's premier power forwards from the Los Angeles Clippers in late January.

Detroit entered the break one game below .500 and in ninth place in the Eastern Conference. The Pistons' aim the remainder of the season is to move up a notch or two in the standings and claim a playoff spot.
