NBA Admits Blake Griffin Shouldn't Have Been Ejected From Clippers-Warriors

Dec 26, 2013 4:41 PM

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."

Warriors Have Only Given 10 Minutes To Curry, Klay, Iguodala, Barnes, Bogut Lineup

Dec 26, 2013 1:49 PM

The Golden State Warriors were widely expected to feature a smallball lineup of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Andre Iguodala, Harrison Barnes and Andrew Bogut, but that combo has only seen 10 minutes of floor time this season.

The Warriors were very successful in last season's playoffs with Barnes at power forward, but Mark Jackson has preferred a more traditional lineup this season.

The Warriors are somewhat stubbornly committed to keeping David Lee as a starter and primary option in crunch time. Lee was the first major acquisition of Joe Lacob's ownership.
