NBA referee David Guthrie trips over Tony Allen (Video)

NBA referee David Guthrie took a spill during the third quarter of Game 2 between the Los Angeles Clippers and Memphis Grizzlies on Monday night at Staples Center. Guthrie was backing up and did not notice Grizzlies guard Tony Allen sitting on the ground behind him. He tripped over and fell, but luckily he was not injured.

Blake Griffin did not receive the foul call he was looking for on the play and seemed to point at Guthrie as a way of saying the ref’s fall was karma for not calling a foul.

Below is a look at the tumble in GIF form:

    funny how no one noticed or seem to care he fell! One guy looks away! Refs get no respect and rightfully so!
