It's probably time for Pau Gasol to just run and hide. If he sees Blake Griffin running down the lane, or sees the athletic Clippers big man lining up a tip-jam, it might be time for Gasol to just back away and concede the issue. Because bad things keep happening on Wednesday night.
First it was a vicious tip-jam in the first quarter. Gasol seemed to have the rebound all lined up, but he didn't. Not with Griffin around, hovering near the rim with that outlandish vertical.
Then, in the third quarter, it happened again. This time, however, it wasn't a rebound. It was just a straight-up poster jam, and Gasol was, once again, the victim. Poor guy can't catch a break.
This may have been an offensive foul on Griffin, but it went down as an and-one, and Gasol was once again left wondering what in the world happened. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
If it happens again, it's probably just time to call it a night.
