Washington Wizards forward Trevor Booker called for Blake Griffin to be suspended after the Clippers forward allegedly elbowed Booker in the face on Saturday. Booker told the Washington Post's Michael Lee he hoped the NBA reviewed the play:
"He should've got kicked out of the game for it," Booker said of Griffin. "Hopefully they go review it after the game and I'm looking for a suspension at least. I mean, he elbowed me to my face."
The Los Angeles Clippers ended up winning, 94-87, but not after a tense last minute. A jumper by Chris Paul gave the Clippers a five-point lead with 32 seconds left, and Lee writes that the play led to Booker and Griffin jostling for a rebound on the play. That's why Booker was apparently hit in the face. He had to be stopped from going after Griffin after the shot.
Booker had four points and seven boards, and though Griffin scored 17 to go with 11 rebounds, he struggled by shooting 5 of 18 from the field.
Griffin was also working the officials during the game, one time clearly flopping and pretending to take a hit to the jaw as center Nene pivoted off a rebound.
