Detroit Pistons & # 39; Blake Griffin talks about the team's loss in Dallas Friday, January 25, 2019. Vince Ellis, Detroit Free Press
DALLAS – After learning social media exploded over some perceived distractions with Reggie Jackson, Blake Griffin said he made a point to talk to Detroit Pistons Points guard that it was not necessary
Jackson said he did not care the least what outsiders say about him and his teammates.
"Stanley (Johnson) told me what happened right after the game, but apart from that, I didn't control," Jackson said Friday morning.
"I really don't pay attention to Twitter like that or ESPN so much. People see the comments, but 90 percent of it gets BS so I'm not aware of what they Most say, I'm probably the worst person on our team when it comes to social media. "
After the stamp victory over the New Orleans Pelicans, a fun Jackson interrupted a Griffin who tells a Fox Sports Detroit that the team should have better focus after
The television camera got the frustration on Griffin's face and explained the team's inability to finish close games.
Jackson, who didn't know Griffin's mood, shot with Griffin and the reporter.
He also hit a bag because he was probably happy that he finally contributed to a victory after scoring seven of his 17 points in the last 6:21.

"People always making things bigger than it is or trying to do it isn't, "said Griffin after scoring 35 points in the 106-101 stamps for the Dallas Mavericks.
"We laugh and joke around all the time and feel good. It was just that sometimes I'm locked in on something. It's no matter."
Just bad time at Jackson's part?
"It was a great comedic timing," Griffin said with a chuckle.
Pistons coach Dwane Casey was happy to see a player criticizing the lack of focus because it is a sign of procurement from the team's best player.
The flasks are 4-8 in play decided by three points or less and have lost 11 matches with less than five points.
"We need more focus in closing games, closing quarters. I told the team right after the match because that game could have gone in some way," Casey said. "Reggie had fun after that fact, but it was bad that Blake talked about closing games, was focused, and he was walking around."
It was the first glimpse of the stamps of probably rookie of years Luka Doncic, and they were impressed when Slovenia's progress went to 32 points, eight assists and eight rebounds.
The only player who had great success in preserving Doncic was Stanley Johnson, who forced him to shoot 3 to 8 in the fourth quarter.
But he still hit a back jumper against Johnson with 1:14 back, giving Mavs a 104-97 lead.
"He goes both ways, he can shoot it, he can shoot it out of the studio," Johnson said.
