Report: Blake Griffin got upset with call, spat on court

16 Comments

Doc Rivers got fined for criticizing the officials after the Clippers’ Game 5 loss to the Spurs.

What is the statute of limitations on penalties from that game?

Asking for Blake Griffin.

Bill Simmons Grantland:

I guess you can say “Champion teams don’t do this.” But I don’t think lottery teams do, either.

Seriously, what team does this?

And how did Griffin get away with it?

Clippers fans can (rightly) complain about Chris Paul getting a cheap technical late in the game, but if Simmons description is accurate, the Clippers came out ahead. Griffin definitely deserved a tech for what Simmons described.

At least Ekpe Udoh didn’t have to clean it up this time (as he did for Matt Barnes earlier in the series):

That poor ball boy this time, though.

Not being so gross in Game 6 would be a nice step for the Clippers. More importantly, they need to regroup if they’re going to steal another win in San Antonio.
