Following a maddening (or more levels than one) loss against the Clippers Thursday night, DeMarcus Cousins had some inflammatory post-game remarks about Blake Griffin, who notably feigned an injury to draw Cousins’ fifth foul of the game.

“I guess the wind from my hand hit him in the eye,” Cousins, who failed to record significant minutes because of foul trouble, told reporters. “I guess he got fouled by the wind. “He’s in L.A.where actors belong. He’s an actor.”

It was hilarious. It was classic DeMarcus. Who didn’t love it (besides Blake Griffin)?

The best part of the whole thing was that the Clippers and Kings were in the middle of a home-and-home series, meaning that the two would meet again just two days later on Saturday. This time the Clippers had a much easier time with the Kings than they did two days prior, rolling 109-94. And while there wasn’t much fuss made during the game, Griffin, who had a sense of humor about the spat, made sure to give his take on Cousins after the game. From ESPN LA’s Arash Markazi:

“I first heard about it from my acting coach, he sent me an email,” Griffin joked after the game, responding to the comments for the first time. “He was obviously thrilled. It was a compliment. I guess he’s seen some commercials and stuff and I appreciate it.”

“I mean this in the nicest possible way; you have to consider the source,” Griffin said. “If this is somebody that has been in the league a long time and really knows the ins and outs of the game and has a great reputation for carrying himself the right way then it’s something I would look at and see how I rubbed this guy the wrong way. But someone like that, you just keep going.”

And just for good measure, Chris Paul graciously threw in his two cents:

“We won. He lost,” Paul said. “We’re competing for the playoffs. He’s not. That happens in this league.”
