In last night’s Washington Wizards loss to the L.A. Clippers, Blake Griffin was constantly harassed by the defensive duo of Nene and Trevor Booker. His frustrations were starting to show as he went 5-18 from the floor and things were getting chippy between he and both Wizards players defending him. There was lots of pushing and shoving going on and certainly some good acting. On one of the key plays of the game, Nene grabbed a rebound and tried to clear a little space. As you can see below, courtesy of Truth About It, no contact was made at all with Griffin’s face as he pulls a combination phantom/sniper fire flop and flails to the ground: If the NBA is going to stay true to their form, we should more than likely be seeing a fine coming down for this lovely acting job by Griffin. Unfortunately for Wizards fans, Washington went on to get another “moral victory” as they fought back and had a chance to win the game, but ultimately fell 94-87. The loss shouldn’t be blamed on the above play or the refs — although Joey Crawford should have one hell of a highlight reel from this match-up — but moreso on some poor plays in the last 2 minutes and missed free throws down the stretch. Either way, Blake Griffin is clearly one of those “only like him when he is on your team” type players.
