Game 3 of the 2012 NBA Playoffs first-round series between the Memphis Grizzlies and Los Angeles Clippers has officially gotten chippy. Clippers forward Blake Griffin already picked up one technical on Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph earlier in the game. Here, he almost picked up another.
Griffin was fouled on the play by Marc Gasol, who spends the majority of this video whining about what was a pretty obvious call. Meanwhile, Griffin kept driving to the rim and got clotheslined by Randolph, sending everyone together. Luckily for the Clippers, Chris Paul pulled Griffin away from the scrum just before he could get called for his second technical.
