NBA Admits Blake Griffin Shouldn't Have Been Ejected From Clippers-Warriors
The NBA announced on Thursday afternoon that Blake Griffin was wrongly ejected from the Christmas Day game between the Los Angeles Clippers and Golden State Warriors.
Griffin received a second technical foul for his altercation with Andrew Bogut with 10:43 left in the fourth quarter of the Warriors' 105-103 win.
"After a league review of the Clippers-Warriors game, we have come to the conclusion that Blake Griffin should not have been ejected from the game," Rod Thorn said in a statement. "A common foul should have been called on Griffin for initially attempting to dislodge the Warriors' Andrew Bogut and a technical foul should have been assessed to Bogut for grabbing Griffin by the shirt and wrestling with him."
