Throughout the years, the Los Angeles Clippers have found themselves in the middle of many scrappy situations. This was not somewhat scratchy, with JJ Barea simply chucking Blake Griffin to the floor with no regard.
This started on the way down the court as Barea was not happy about the constant pushing by Blake Griffin. He had enough. He went ahead and ERUPTED. Small man. Big heart.

However, the crowd in Dallas completely loved it.

Yes, JJ Barea did get a flagrant 2 and ejected from the matchup. Nobody is allowed to push somebody like that no matter what happens. Don’t worry JJ, you got street credit.
Blake Griffin… you alright buddy?
