Blake Griffin did more than just pick up a technical standing up for himself after a hard foul Friday night.
He also was a ball boy, along with teammate Spencer Hawes. It came in with just a couple of minutes left in the second quarter, when Alec Burks was at the line for the Jazz when Griffin noticed a wet spot in the key. The ball boy came out with the magical round mop, but that was not enough in this case so Griffin and Hawes jumped in with towels to help out.
Later Griffin took at turn as the DJ in the arena, sold a tray of frozen lemonades, then made sure there were pretzels and popcorn in the media room for guys working late. He’s important to the franchise that way.
