Once again another NBA player got into it with Blake Griffin, and this time there was an ejection at stake.
P.J. Tucker was ejected from Monday’s Clippers-Suns game with about 5:30 remaining in the game. The Clippers were up by 14 at the time, so it’s possible that Tucker was frustrated, because he dragged down Griffin as the two were fighting for position for a rebound following a Matt Barnes missed 3-point attempt.
Tucker appeared to hit Griffin in the face. Griffin reacted strongly and scrambled to go after Tucker, but they were separated. This GIF shows where Tucker got him:
Tucker’s shot at Griffin did not go over well at all, because Blake was ticked off more than we normally see. He usually is much more composed even when he’s been abused by the other team.
Griffin had 37 points in the win. He even went 9-for-10 at the free throw line.
