Report: Blake Griffin was set off when Timberwolves fan called him ‘boy’

Blake Griffin Pistons

Blake Griffin had to be restrained from going after a heckler during a game in Minnesota earlier this season, and now we know what set him off.

According to Detroit Pistons reporter Vince Ellis, being called “boy” is what triggered Griffin.

Griffin had been responding to a heckler in Minnesota throughout the fourth quarter before raging in overtime. Griffin had to be restrained from going after the fan, who was ejected from the game.

The exchange with the fan motivated Griffin, who scored 34 points in a 129-123 overtime win. The subject seems to be coming up due to Russell Westbrook’s publicized incident with a fan earlier in the week in Utah. A second Jazz fan has since been banned by the team.
