Zach Randolph takes down Blake Griffin on dirty play (Video)

The beef between Zach Randolph and Blake Griffin that was evident during the playoffs last season carried over into the 2012-2013 season.

Randolph and Griffin tussled several times while going for rebounds during the season-opening game between the Los Angeles Clippers and Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday. In the play seen above, Randolph just took down Griffin during the fourth quarter and then tried to make it seem like he was innocent. As you can see in the video, he was the perpetrator and just about tackled the Clippers forward.

The two tangled on the previous play and received double-technical fouls, setting the stage for that takedown from Z-bo. As bad as the play seen above was, it might not even be the dirtiest act Randolph has committed with Griffin.

Take a look at these two plays from their playoff series last season. This was from Game 4 of their first-round Western Conference playoff series last season:

And this was from Game 7:

Do you know what all three games have in common? They were all won by the Clippers. The Clippers took the opener 101-92. Griffin had 11 and 7 while Randolph had 15 and 16, but shot 5-for-15 from the field.
