Battle of Los Angeles: Blake Griffin vs. Lamar Odom
The Lakers (30-12) were also outrebounded and outmuscled, part of the reason Odom grabbed Griffin’s jersey after Griffin bulled into him while getting position after a free throw in the final seconds.
Griffin wasn’t pleased with the jersey grab and neither was Baron Davis, who started jawing at Odom, which led to some seriously harsh words between Davis and Odom as four players got ejected (Griffin, Davis, Odom and, curiously, Artest, whose apparent crime was trying to pull Odom away from the fray).
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: A rivalry is brewing.
Yesterday, the lowly Clippers beat the two-time world champion Lakers in the battle for The City of Angeles.
However, the Clippers’ 99-92 win was only one part of the story. Blake Griffin, the runaway favourite for Rookie of the Year, was involved in an end-of-game shoving match with the Lakers’ Lamar Odom.
Mr. Khloe Kardashian took exception to Griffin trying to gain position on a missed free-throw when the game was decided. Then all hell broke loose.
