Zach Randolph, Blake Griffin fight again in Grizzlies-Clippers Game 6

Zach Randolph and Blake Griffin are going at it again. They'll never stop.

You knew that Zach Randolph and Blake Griffin would get tangled up one more time before this Clippers-Grizzlies series ended. Sure enough, it happened midway through the third quarter of Friday's Game 6, and it's a testament to the normalcy of their fights that this wasn't reviewed. With any two other players, harsher penalties than a double foul and a technical on Randolph would have ensued.

The play began as so many other Randolph-Griffin skirmishes did: on a box out underneath the hoop. Griffin seemed to have a hand in Randolph's face on the box out, which ostensibly irked Randolph. Once both players were off-balanced, Randolph chose to break his fall by hooking Griffin to the ground, holding him down like he was going for a submission in a wrestling match, then driving his elbow into Randolph's throat.

Here's a look at the whole sequence.

It's not quite as striking as Randolph's elbow punch to Griffin's face in last year's playoffs, but it was pretty close. Z-Bo is his own man.
