VIDEO: Blake Griffin Almost Gets In A Fight After A Hard Foul

At some point, this was bound to happen. Months of getting shoved around finally pushed Blake Griffin to his breaking point on Wednesday night after a hard foul by Tony Battie. Griffin was not only smacked in the face on a break, but was also taken to the ground, larding hard as he crumpled to the ground. But instead of sulking about it, Griffin got even, taking Battie down and almost inciting a minor brawl

Check out the video from Jose3030.

The best way to defend Griffin, whose powerful dunks have been a regular occurrence this year, is to smack him in the mouth. It's a strategy employed by many: Bully him and beat him down in hopes of wearing him out. But it also has to get old for Griffin, who continues to be smacked in the face, head and have his body thrown around as if he's riding in a washing machine on a nightly basis.

So does it matter that Griffin fought back? No, not at all. He was going to have to stand up for himself and bang back anyway, so why not now? After all, the two hard fouls were over the line. Griffin was playing basketball when a football game broke out all of a sudden as not one, but two guys go to take him down by way of form tackle.

If nothing else, it's entertaining, and almost as good as one of Griffin's dunks.
